Light based 3D printer shapes custom objects from liquid resin

Hayden Taylor, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, and senior author of a paper on the technology explained that the printer relies on a viscous liquid that reacts to form a solid when exposed to a certain threshold of light. Projecting carefully crafted patterns of light – essentially “movies” – onto a rotating cylinder of liquid solidifies the desired shape “all at once.” [Source]

Prolong Your Smart Watch with SIMO

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

This design solution discusses the advantages of powering a smart watch with a highly integrated PMIC based on the single-inductor multiple output (SIMO) architecture. We compare it to a typical solution with low level of integration which leads to inefficiencies in PCB space and power consumption. Thanks to a unique SIMO architecture, the MAX77654 PMIC delivers more power efficiently in a smaller space, enabling longer battery life and smaller form factor for smart watches and other wearables.
