App Aims To Reduce Deaths From Opioid Overdose

If administered promptly enough, naloxone can chemically reverse an opioid overdose and save a person’s life. However, timing is critical–quicker administration of the medication can not only save a life, but also reduce the chances that brain damage will occur. In exploring new ways to administer naloxone faster, a team of researchers has harnessed...

Learn the fundamentals of brushless DC motors (BLDC motors)

Fundamentals of brushless DC motors Machines ranging from simple devices to complex equipment make use of brushless DC motors that convert electrical energy into rotational motion.     Basics of BLDC motors include:  A comparison of brushed and brushless DC motors  Simulating BLDC motors to observe the back-EMF profile  Six-step...
