    Currently, there is no commercial device capable of stopping the outlet of the intraocular biological fluid during minimally invasive ophthalmic surgery. While solving this problem is not simple, in this article we describe the realization of a novel device capable of limiting the problem. In this research, a novel drop-free trocar that allows the cessation or reduction of the outflow of vitreous humour during a typical minimally invasive ophthalmic surgical procedure has been designed and realized.

    Networking and distributed applications have an increasing relevance in industrial automation as the horizontal and vertical integration of control systems progresses. In this context, object-oriented programming concepts and languages like Java become more and more interesting for all levels of automation. Within this article the state of the art in real-time Java and its applicability in the automation domain are discussed and an example for an implementation of a run-time environment utilizing the real-time specification for Java (RTSJ) will be introduced.

    This work is devoted to review and analyze the most relevant characteristics of multilevel converters, to motivate possible solutions, and to show that we are in a decisive instant in which energy companies have to bet on these converters as a good solution compared with classic two-level converters. This article presents a brief overview of the actual applications of multilevel converters and provides an introduction of the modeling techniques and the most common modulation strategies. It also addresses the operational and technological issues. View full abstract»
