Stephen Hawking, a Cambridge University physicist, reversed a theory he has held for 30 years that matter and energy trapped by collapsed stars known as black holes will disappear, the Associated Press said. ``If you jump into a black hole, your mass energy will be returned to the
The Keithley DAS boards are a line of general purpose ISA bus boards with the option of 16 single-ended or 8 differential analog input channels, 4 digital input lines, 4 digital output lines and an A/D converter that has 12 bits of resolution and speeds up to 100 KHz.
The DT series from Data Translation offers a line of image acquisition boards with flexible input timing and spatial resolution, Digital Clock Sync, MACH series PCI bus-mastering architecture and specially designed circuits to ensure accurate data sampling.
The Image Station allows the user to detect and image a variety of labels and sample formats including chemiluminescence, fluorescence and chromogenic labels in gels, blots and plates. Megapixel sensors produce images that are sharp and clear. It has a linear dynamic range of greater than 4.
Axio inverted microscope is designed to bring images to routine observations where large quantities of samples must be screened quickly. The instrument is for cell and molecular biology laboratories, universities and pharmaceutical companies.
LabVIEW is a graphical development environment for signal acquisition, measurement analysis, and data presentation that provides the flexibility of a programming language without the complexity of traditional development tools.
Agilent VEE Pro is a graphical programming environment that features embedded MATLAB functionality, allowing math analysis, visualization and signal processing information to be gathered.
TestPoint is software for designing test, measurement and data acquisition applications. The software provides high-level A/D functions. A/D samples can be scaled, offset or linearized as single samples or vectors then plotted either as a static graph or strip chart.
The 2701 DMM is a data acquisition system that combines the functions of a DMM, switch system and a datalogger. It has true 6-1/2-digit resolution, a choice of 12 switch/control plug-in modules, 200 differential input channels, front panel inputs and TestPoint software.
