Space Industry Transformation

Technological Advancements Transform Space into a Broader Information Enterprise

The space industry is engaged in a remarkable technological transformation from primarily government-driven stand-alone projects to a private industry-driven supply chain collaborating to create exciting new services for businesses and consumers. The key technology trends that are driving the new space industry are recyclable and smaller launch vehicles that are reducing the cost of putting satellites into orbit. Another key trend is smaller satellites, weighing from less than one to a few hundred pounds, that lower the barrier to entry for new space applications.

Motorsport

Under the Hood of an Italian Student Motorsport Team using E3.series

Established in 2000, Firenze Race Team is the official Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) team of Università degli Studi di Firenze (University of Florence), where Formula SAE is doing much to mirror Formula 1 racing by holding events around the world. But a key difference is that the teams are made up only of students in active education; briefed to develop a Formula-style race car.

E3.series Panel Autoconnect

Panel Autoconnect: Optimizing an Enclosure using Autorouting in E3.series

This tip explains how to use Panel Autoconnect to define wire lengths in E3.series. After a schematic is defined and units are placed in E3.panel, Panel Autoconnect finds the shortest path for the connections defined in the schematic. If units are moved in panel, the length information is updated across modules, allowing users to optimize the enclosure to minimize wire lengths.
