There have been interesting developments in the world of small FPGA's over the last five years. Tiny "chip scale" FPGAs under 4.5 mm x 4.5 mm containing a large number [6,000 (for Lattice Crosslink MD6000) - 8,000 (for the Intel/Altera MAX 10M08)] of LUTs have become available. This is equivalent to the largest Xilinx XC4000 series FPGA from the ye...

Dowel pins are useful for locating a part into a repeatable, fixed position. They are often used to align parts that need to be more precise than simply lining up screws, as screw holes generally are used for fastening, and not precise alignment. However, pinned joints are not as precise as kinematic couplings, which are used for more precision and...

I use 3D printing a lot at NK; it’s a great tool to prototype parts, but a common issue we face is that those printed prototypes can’t come close to the strength of a machined or molded part of the same shape. I have found that a quick way to improve the strength of my 3D prints is to put more consideration into the orientation and build direction...
