Dubai company ready to 3D print your house, says 19-year-old founder

Michael Fahy for The National:  A teenager who has relocated his start-up business in 3D printing technology from Silicon Valley to Dubai has said that it is ready to begin offering 3D printed houses and buildings.

Chris Kelsey, 19, the co-founder and chief executive of Cazza Construction Technologies, has said that its mobile printing robots are capable of printing a 200 square metre house in a single day using just two workers – one to monitor the machine and another to add elements such as steel rebar and electricity cables within pre-determined sections.

"If someone wants to build a house, we design and engineer according to 3D standards. From there we bring the machine on site and set up the position where it is meant to print. Once it is in position, the machine 3D prints according to the software design," he said.

Mr Kelsey, who was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in California, began to seriously look at the market for 3D printing in construction early last year, using the proceeds generated from the sale of an earlier company – an app and website development business known as Appsitude.  Cont'd...

Mouser Electornics - Maxim Integrated MAX3523 DOCSIS 3.1 Programmable-Gain Amplifiers

Maxim Integrated MAX3523 DOCSIS 3.1 Programmable-Gain Amplifiers are designed to deliver 68dBmV output power while meeting DOCSIS 3.1 requirements. These amplifiers utilize high-voltage CMOS process that enables the device to deliver high dynamic range while minimizing power dissipation under a 5V supply rail. The MAX3523 programmable-gain amplifiers cover 5MHz to 204MHz output bandwidth and consume 3.5W power with 5V supply voltage. These amplifiers consist of programmable power codes that allow operation at reduced power dissipation. Typical applications include DOCSIS 3.1 upstream (D3.1 US), Cable Modem (CM), and Customer Premises Equipment (CPE).
