Microscope Viewing System

Carl Zeiss, Thornwood, NY, has released a system for Axio Scope and Axio Imager light microscopes that enables up to 21 individuals to view the same microscope image field at the same time. The image generated under the microscope is seen by all observers with an identical image orientation in a 23-mm field of view, which provides users with an overview of the large specimen section. Each configuration can be implemented with standard stages, and each observer’s workstation can be configured in either a straight line or in as many right angles as needed. Each tube is supported by its own column in its center of gravity.

Designing and Implementing COM Express Modules

Computer-on-Module Express (COM Express) has become a widely accepted way to implement embedded computing solutions in a very compact form factor. The main principle of the COM Express standard is to implement the processor and memory on a small module (basic module size for the type 2 specification is 125 × 95 mm) and then implement specific functions and interfaces for a particular application on the baseboard.

CompactDAQ Chassis

National Instruments (Austin, TX) has introduced the NI cDAQ-9174 four-slot and cDAQ-9178 eight-slot NI CompactDAQ chassis, suitable for mixed-signal data acquisition systems. The 9174 offers a smaller footprint and can measure up to 128 channels in a 16cm × 9cm x 9cm system. The 9178 features external BNC triggers to synchronize with an external device or another system without installing or wiring a digital module. Both systems contain four advanced counters and operate in temperatures from -20 to 55°C. They can withstand up to 30g shock and 3g vibration.

Real-Time Avionics Operating System

The ThreadX® real-time operating systems from Express Logic (San Diego, CA) have been integrated into Avidyne Corporations' DFC90 attitude-based digital flight control systems in Cirrus SR20 and SR22 aircraft. The DFC90 is an integrated flight computer and control panel designed as a slide-in replacement for existing rate-based STEC 55X flight computers. The DFC90 flight control system receives input regarding the aircraft’s attitude, heading, and altitude, as well as input from the pilot and navigation system that specify the desired attitude, heading, altitude, and rate of climb/descent. As the operating system powering Avidyne's flight control system, ThreadX controls all functions in the DFC90.
