EC: NL900S Data Transceiver Radio
Network integration - Wireless products: The NL900S Data Transceiver Radio from RF Neulink is an effective, high-power solution for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless systems in the 900 MHz unlicensed band. This is a Control Engineering 2012 Engineers’ Choice finalist.
RF Neulink has recently completed the design of a revolutionary new radio data transceiver, the NL900S, incorporating an FPGA and software-defined radio technology. The combination of these two leading technologies enabled RF Neulink to look beyond the conventional design limitations of wireless data communications products. Because FPGAs are software programmable, users can use tools to change the functionality of the product by downloading a new application to the FPGA without changing any hardware. The benefit to product owners is the capacity to defer the obsolescence of their investment through the ability to update hardware and their software.

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.
