32-Bit CompactPCI Backplane

Elma Bustronic (Fremont, CA) has developed a 3U 32-bit CompactPCI (cPCI) backplane in a 6-slot size. It features hundreds of I/O pins across the backplane that are undefined on the 64-bit version. The backplanes are PICMG 2.16-compliant and utilize controlled-impedance stripline design resulting in virtually zero crosstalk. The Bustronic 32-bit backplane line currently includes a 6U 8-slot and 3U versions in 3, 6, and 8 slots. The company also offers a range of 64-bit cPCI backplanes and various other CompactPCI accessories.

SolidWorks® 2008 3D CAD Software

SolidWorks Corp., Concord, MA, has announced SolidWorks® 2008 3D CAD software that features a new user interface and 3D graphics, an enhancement of the SolidWorks Intelligent Feature Technology (SWIFT), and advanced design analysis capabilities. A new intuitive workflow predicts which tools users will need in the context of a specific task, and makes them readily available. The interface reduces mouse travel, and provides task-based command selection. SWIFT Instant3D lets users create and modify 3D model features by manipulating drag handles directly on the model. Users can make edits by dragging edges while looking at a slice of the model. SWIFT DimXpert automatically sets geometric dimensions and tolerances on parts, and provides visual feedback on whether the model has been described properly and is ready for manufacturing. It automatically creates views, dimensions, and tolerances in 2D drawings for design documentation. Design Clipart lets users search their file systems for sketches, tables, images, features, or DWG blocks inside existing designs. The feature dissects the target file, letting users drag the item to incorporate it in a new design. For Free Info Click Here.

Servo Motors

Elmo Motion Control (Westford, MA) has announced the integration of its SimplIQ core servo technology with plug and play capabilities into the Duet series of brushless DC servo motors. The Duet can support resolver feedback, programming capabilities, and communication protocols. The technology’s CANpen support in the motor enables users to add axes to the system by using Elmo’s Composer software. The composer also allows for configuration, testing, and turning by communicating via CANopen or RS-232. Since the main components are built into the motor, the Duet is able to maintain a compact size and requires fewer and shorter cables, which can speed up the wire routing process. The Duet is available in six different models with power ranging from 0.16 Nm (22.7 oz-in) to 2.5 Nm (354 oz-in) within a voltage range of 10 to 96 VDC.
