EC: DT9862 isolated, high-speed USB data acquisition module
Network integration – Network hardware: The DT9862 from Data Translation provides isolated, high-speed USB data acquisition at throughput rates up to 10 MHz. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.
The DT9862 from Data Translation features isolated, high-speed USB data acquisition at throughput rates up to 10 MHz. When two A/D channels are sampled simultaneously, both channels can acquire data at 10 MHz using burst sampling or at 5 MHz continuously. The only limit on throughput is the USB 2.0 bus speed, which has been optimized for the DT9862 to over 25 MB/s. Each analog input channel has its own separate A/D converter eliminating phase shift between each channel—a problem with multiplexed architectures where all inputs share one common A/D converter. As a result, the DT9862 series can correlate measurements instantly. This overall throughput breakthrough represents a five-times increase in speed for the industry. The DT9862 module was developed and designed in direct response to customers requiring ultra-high-speed instantaneous sampling. Ideal applications are fast thermal analysis, triangular spotting of downed black boxes, and high-speed ultrasound imaging that need fast results.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
