Protocol Analyzer Mid-Bus Probe

Anew mid-bus probe for the Summit™ T3-16 Protocol Analyzer from LeCroy (Chestnut Ridge, NY) can be connected to systems that utilize the Intel® mid-bus probe footprint specification. The probe uses a full-size connector that supports PCle® x8 lanes at 8 GT/s. Two mid-bus probes can be connected to a Summit T3-16 Analyzer and will support x16 lane widths. These probes can be used in conjunction with the unique lane swizzling feature on the Summit T3-16 Analyzer, which allows probe signals to be reorganized logically, to give developers flexibility in PCB layout.

Lightweight Spreader for SBCs

Advanced Digital Logic (San Diego, CA) has introduced the ADL945PC-LTSPREADER, a lightweight spreader for the ADL945PC family of single board computers. The ADL945PC-LTSPREADER is designed for any application where weight is important, such as mass conscious applications, UAV applications, handheld applications, etc. The ADL945PC-LTSPREADER has thermal performance in excess of 98% of the original ADL945PC-SPREADER (293162), but at a mass savings of nearly 45%. Like all of the thermal solutions offered for the PC/104 lines, the flat-plate mounting pattern on the ADL945PC is bolt-up compatible with all other 855 and 945 class thermal interface products.

USB CompuScope

GaGe, Lockport, IL, has introduced the USB CompuScope family of high-performance USB digitizers that includes three models featuring up to two input channels, up to 1.1 GS/s maximum sampling per channel, 12- or 14-bit vertical resolution, 128 MS of acquisition memory, and up to 1.2 GHz of input analog bandwidth. The digitizers provide high signal fidelity and feature Effective Number Of Bits (ENOB) performance values of over 10 or 11 at a 70-MHz signal frequency, depending on the model. Each model comes equipped with a USB cable, a 100/220V power cable, and a lightweight carrying case. The digitizers connect to a laptop computer, providing an ultra-portable digitizer solution. Each model operates under the GageScope standalone oscilloscope software, or from any GaGe CompuScope Software Development kit. The devices incorporate SP Devices’ patented interleaving technology.

Product of the Month: Progressive-Scan Color Camera

The high-sensitivity IK-TF7 3CCD camera from Toshiba Imaging Systems (Irvine, CA) has been integrated into the new Micron III retinal imaging microscope, developed by Phoenix Research Labs (San Ramon, CA). The 3-chip, progressive-scan color camera features high resolution (1024 × 768 pixels) and small pixel size (4.65 × 4.65 microns). Prism block color technology permits the capture of fast-moving color items under test, such as the retinal movement in rats and mice. The camera can image up to 90 frames per second, and includes three 1/3-inch progressive scan CCDs. Other features include partial scanning capability, a field removable/replaceable infrared (IR) filter, on-screen and RS-232C setup, asynchronous reset, long-term integration, and shutter speeds from 1/100 to 1/100,000 seconds.

Illumination Design Software

LightTools® 7.0 illumination design and analysis software from Optical Research Associates (ORA®) (Pasadena, CA) supports Windows 7 and delivers expanded capabilities for both model construction and system analysis. Complex light source models can now be created instantly from any geometric object, including those generated in LightTools using Boolean operations on basic shapes, or imported from other CAD software, such as SolidWorks®, using the LightTools Solid-Works Link Module. LightTools’ ray tracing and analysis functionality has been extended and improved, providing backward ray tracing for illuminance, intensity, and spatial and angular luminance meshes. A new “smart output” smoothing algorithm reduces statistical noise in these calculations, enabling analysis with higher accuracy and greater speed that proves to be especially effective with color calculations.

Rugged Lenses

Resolve Optics (Chesham, UK) has introduced rugged lenses designed to meet and exceed environmental tests such as Def Stan 00-35 which includes vibration, shock, and bump testing over a temperature range of -40 °C to 70 °C. Lens optical coatings can be applied to meet a range of MIL Spec standards (including MIL-C-14806, MIL-C-675, MIL-M-13508) to ensure the coatings do not craze, peel, or succumb to fungal attack.
