    Load cells have long been used to sense and measure force and torque. When properly designed and used, they are very accurate and reliable sensors. Load cells are applied in several different fields, usually for weighing measurements. Among many other things, food, vehicles, and animals are weighed daily with load cells. The gripper of a robotic arm that picks up an object can be equipped with loa... View full abstract»

    This series will present some procedural guidance for entrepreneurs and inventors who would otherwise either not pursue protection for their inventions, or would file a patent application pro se without the input of a qualified patent practitioner. It can be beyond the budget of many inventors having a professional patent practitioner draft and file a patent application. The topics discussed in th... View full abstract»

    A software defined radio (SDR) is a communication system that performs many of its required signal processing tasks in a programmable digital signal processing (DSP) engine. The engine is coupled to the air interface of analog circuits and antennae by analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters (ADCs and DACs). The SDR's software reprograms the DSP segment of the radio's physical layer to r... View full abstract»

    During the design and construction of a distributed measurement system, design engineers face many basic questions. How does one properly choose a structure and actual solutions for the key elements of the system? Which elements are important? How does one guarantee a suitable level of operating quality and reliability? A broad knowledge base and technical experience are necessary to answer these ... View full abstract»

    The information in this report on CIPM MRA has been published in many places and is open access on the BIPM web site. The purpose of the CIPM MRA was to formalize the previous international comparisons of national standards that had traditionally been carried out by the major NMIs of the world and to extend the recognition gained for their national standards to cover also their calibration and mea...
