Software development is now considered the most challenging part of system design. Providing a flexible and configurable hardware platform earlier on in the development cycle makes both software and hardware development less challenging while improving the overall system design. By targeting an All Programmable SoC for ADAS development, OEMs can reduce their risk and timescales, secure in the knowledge that the hardware platform is flexible and powerful enough to accommodate almost any design. As driver assistance solutions proliferate, automakers will seek new ways to exploit technology to make cars smarter, safer, and more efficient. Reducing the design burden and cost will be an increasingly important element in the evolution of ADAS. The logiADAK Zynq-7000 Automotive Driver Assistance Kit can significantly help developers of camera-based driver assistance systems to accelerate their design cycle and ultimately be even more innovative.

Lean Production principles are regarded as best-practice for modern production systems. In the course of the current discussion about Industry 4.0, there is the question if and how these two approaches are compatible. This article shows that they use different tools, but have similar objectives. Despite some contradictions, they can complement each other. A case example from the field of intra logistics shows how innovative technology can serve as enabler to further optimize lean processes. © 2015, GITO Verlag. All rights reserved. Source

The response to deformation of samples of cast Ti46Al8Ta and Ti46Al8Nb alloys, which had been heat treated to produce similar refined microstructures, has been investigated; the refinement increases the ductility from about 0.2% found in cast HIPped samples to 0.5% for the Nb-containing alloy and up to 1.5% for the Ta-containing alloy. It has been shown that the tensile fracture surface of samples can show facetted regions characteristic of a brittle fracture and regions which appear ductile. Back scattered images and electron back scattered diffraction data indicates that there are large areas of similarly oriented alpha2 in the Nb-containing alloy and that the alpha2 is coarser than in the Ta-containing alloy. Examination of dislocation activity in the alpha2 and gamma phases in both alloys shows that deformation via slip and twinning within gamma is dominant and that limited slip of both c-component and a-dislocations can occur within alpha2. In some alpha2 grains, which are oriented so that slip of a-dislocations cannot relieve the applied stress, large regions, which are strongly strained elastically, can be imaged at the alpha2/gamma interfaces. In such cases, dislocation slip and twinning in gamma can appear to be transmitted across alpha2 via these elastic stresses, without any dislocation activity within the alpha2. Synchrotron observations aimed at defining the onset of plasticity in the alpha2 did not reveal any obvious difference in behaviour of the two alloys. Analysis shows that the oxygen-content of the alpha2 in the two alloys is very similar and analytical TEM shows that the site occupancy of the Nb and Ta within the alpha2 is only slightly different. These observations are discussed in terms of the tensile properties, in particular the ductilities, of these two alloys. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

The starting point of this work are inaccurate statements found in the literature for Multi-terminal Binary Decision Diagrams (MTBDDs) (Bahar et al., Form. Methods Syst. Des. 10(2/3):171-206, 1997; Siegle, Behaviour analysis of communication systems: compositional modelling, compact representation and analysis of performability properties, 2002; Kuntz, Symbolic semantics and verification of stochastic process algebras, 2006) regarding the well-definedness of the MTBDD abstraction operation. The statements try to relate an operation â̂ - on a set of terminal values M to the property that the abstraction over this operation does depend on the order of the abstracted variables. This paper gives a necessary and sufficient condition for the independence of the abstraction operation of the order of the abstracted variables in the case of an underlying monoid and it treats the more general setting of a magma. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

We review the current development status of Mo-Si-B alloys consisting of Mo solid solution and the intermetallic phases Mo3Si and Mo 5SiB2 which could take advantage of the beneficial oxidation resistance of the silicide phases and of the outstanding mechanical properties of molybdenum. For adequate low temperature toughness a continuous Mo solid solution matrix should be established in the microstructure. Besides, wrought processing of such alloys at elevated temperatures requires the presence of an ultra-fine grained (UFG) microstructure. Both the prerequisites can be fulfilled using mechanical alloying (MA) as the crucial processing step which even yields nanostructured supersaturated powders after milling. However, values for the ductile-to-brittle transition temperature (DBTT) close to room temperature are unlikely due to grain boundary embrittlement by Si segregation. The possibility of reducing this segregation tendency by various micro-alloying additions will be demonstrated. Finally, the high temperature deformation behaviour of these UFG materials will be comparatively assessed against state-of-the-art Nickelbase single-crystalline superalloys. © (2010) Trans Tech Publications.
