Rugged COTS Military Computers

ADLINK Technology (San Jose, CA) has introduced a line of Extreme Rugged™ Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) military computers based on the Intel® Core™2 Duo and Atom™ N270 processors, the MilSystem™ 840 and the MilSystem™ 735. The MilSystem™ 735 and MilSystem™ 840 are built for maximum reliability in the harshest conditions. Designed from the ground up to withstand extreme temperature and high shock environments, they utilize an extreme rugged enclosure with fanless passive-convection cooling and provide a -40°C to +75°C operating temperature range. MIL-STD-D38999 military grade connectors are used by both systems to maximize the reliability of connections between the system and peripherals.

X Capacitor Discharge ICs

Power Integrations (San Jose, CA) has launched CAPZero™, a family of two-terminal, automatic X capacitor discharge ICs that eliminate power losses while allowing power supplies to comply with safety standards. When AC voltage is applied, CAPZero blocks current flow in the X capacitor safety discharge resistors, reducing the power wasted in these components to zero at 230 VAC. When the AC voltage is disconnected, it automatically and safely discharges the X capacitor by closing the circuit through the bleed resistors and directing the energy away from the exposed AC plug. It is offered with 825V or 1000V MOSFETs in an SO-8 package.

Agile Development Framework

LDRA (Wirral, UK) and Codice Software (Los Gatos, CA) have partnered to provide Plastic SCM's Agile development capability to Embed-X, an ALM product focused on the development and verification of critical, embedded software systems. Plastic SCM tracks and maps the complete development history within Embed-X, giving developers simple click-through access to critical details. It tracks software change and configuration over the entire project lifecycle from requirements and design through analysis, code development and testing, coordinating version control and software branching and merging as the development project evolves. It offers a small footprint and can merge information among geographically distributed development teams, making it suitable for the development of modern complex critical software in vertical markets such as avionics, defense, automotive, medical, telecom, and networking.

Voltage Regulator Online Design Tool

International Rectifier (IR®) (El Segundo, CA), has announced the availability of a new online design tool that enables electrical and thermal simulation and design optimization for the SupIRBuck™ family of integrated point-of-load voltage regulators. The user friendly, interactive, web-based tool, available at http://mypower.irf.com/SupIRBuck, enables the rapid selection and simulation of selected SupIRBuck products. Based on a designer ‘s given input and output parameters, the SupIRBuck online tool selects suitable devices for a given application. Once basic requirements are entered, the tool allows the user to capture schematics, create a reference design along with associated Bill of Materials (BOM), view waveforms, and perform complex thermal and application analysis.
