Ember Coffee Mug Virtual Teardown

Virtual Teardown

When I saw the original advertisement  for the Ember coffee mug, I was drawn to it like a Seattleite to a Starbucks. I knew that I had to get one and would then inevitably spend my weekend trying to figure out precisely how it works.

Controlling Motors with the Talon SRX

Do you struggle to understand how to use the Talon SRX controller effectively?  What is PID and PIDF?  How does feedback control work?  What is feed-forward control? How are values of P, I, D, & F determined? How is the new Talon SRX "motion profile" feature supposed to be used?  

If these are your questions, this blog is for you.

Import Your SystemVision Cloud Design Into the PADS PCB environment

SystemVision Cloud is designed to work with the Mentor PADS PCB tools.  If you have the PADS PCB tools, you can install an import tool into the schematic capture environment.  Using this import tool, you can login with your SystemVision Cloud account, from within the schematic environment, browse for your online designs, and import them into a PADS schematic.  

For an overview of this capability, visit the SystemVision PADS AMS Cloud page.

Battery Model From Experimental Data

Many have observed that as a rechargeable battery is discharged the voltage that it supplies drops. Conversely, when it it recharged, the output voltage goes back up.  Wouldn't it be nice if you could measure this voltage, as a function of the state-of-charge (SOC), and use it to quickly make an accurate model for the battery?  This blog will show you how to do just this with SystemVision® Cloud.
