New edition of the book 'The Design of High Performance Mechatronics' (ISBN 978-1-61499-367-4) by Rob Munnig Schmidt and his co-authors Georg Schitter, Adrian Rankers and Jan van Eijk has been released.
With the exception of Georg Schitter, who is nowadays full time professor at the Vienna University of Technology, the authors are all active in the training curriculum of our partner Mechatronics Academy B.V.
This book deals with the special class of mechatronics that has enabled the exceptional levels of accuracy and speed of high-tech equipment applied in the semiconductor industry, realising the continuous shrink in detailing of micro-electronics and MEMS. As well as the more frequently presented standard subjects of dynamics, motion control, electronics and electromechanics, this book includes an overview of systems engineering, optics and precision measurement systems, in an attempt to establish a connection between these fields under one umbrella.
