Digital Filtering Development Tool (Quickfilter Technologies)

A new development tool from Quickfilter Technologies (Allen, TX) is designed to simplify the task of adding precision digital filtering to designs based on the Texas Instruments (TI) MSP430 ultra-low-power microcontrollers. The MSP-Mojo enables quick implementation of precision digital filtering through an embedded singlechannel precision digital filter chip, the QF1D512 Simple and Versatile FIR engine (SavFIRe™). Until now, a high level of filtering performance would have required migrating from the low-power MSP430 microcontroller to a higher-powered controller such as a digital signal processor (DSP) or a field programmable gate array (FPGA).

PCI Isolated Digital I/O Cards (ACCESS I/O Products)

ACCES I/O Products Inc. (San Diego, CA) released a line of low-cost PCI isolated digital I/O cards offering a range of 16, 32, or 48 individually optically isolated inputs or outputs (channel to chan- nel, channel to ground). Individual channel-to-channel isolation allows for every channel to be physically and electrically separated from the others. The opto-isolated outputs use solid-state, P-Channel FET switches, providing fast turn-on and turn-off time.
