MIT 3D-printed the shape-shifting future of pasta

A new research project from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Tangible Media Group combines 3D printing, molecular gastronomy and macaroni. According to MIT News, researchers Wen Wang and Lining Yao have engineered flat sheets of gelatin and starch into shape-shifting noodles that react and fold when exposed to water. While Yao’s goal of one day creating a self-folding dumpling is still out of reach for now, the research team thinks their breakthrough could help reduce food shipping costs and lead to new trends in fine dining.

Integrity 3D-IC: Industry’s First Fully Integrated 3D-IC Platform

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

3D stacking of ICs is emerging as a preferred solution for chip designers facing a slowdown in Moore’s Law and the rising costs of advanced nodes. However, chip stacking creates new complexities, with extra considerations required for the mechanical, electrical, and thermal aspects of the whole stacked system. Watch this video for an overview of Cadence® Integrity™ 3D-IC, a comprehensive platform for 3D planning, implementation, and system analysis, enabling system-driven PPA for multi-chiplet designs.

Industrial CbM Solutions from Sensing to Actionable Insight

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Condition based monitoring (CBM) has been a valuable tool for industrial applications for years but until now, the adoption of this kind of technology has not been very widespread. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Maurice O’Brien from Analog Devices about how CBM can now be utilized across a wider variety of industrial applications and how Analog Device’s portfolio of CBM solutions can help you avoid unplanned downtime in your next industrial design.
