FPGA Design Solution

Xilinx (San Jose, CA) introduces the ISE® Design Suite 11.1, an FPGA design solution with fully interoperable domain-specific design flows and tool configurations for logic, digital signal processing (DSP), embedded processing, and system-level design. ISE Design Suite 11.1 has four domain-specific design configurations: the Logic Edition, DSP Edition, Embedded Edition, and System Edition. ISE Design Suite 11.1 shrinks development cycles up to 50 percent, reduces dynamic power consumption by 10 percent on average, and boosts tool performance by 2X for current generation Virtex-5 and Spartan- 3 FPGA-based designs.

Power Supply Reference Design

Fairchild Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) has introduced the RD212, a 200W DC/DC power supply reference design that offers high efficiency (up to 94 percent), and low noise characteristics due to its zero voltage switching (ZVS) technique. It provides a 24V output at 8A and protection functions such as over-voltage protection (OVP), overload protection (OLP), overcurrent protection (OCP), abnormal overcurrent protection (AOCP), and internal thermal protection (TSD).

LED Characterization System

As part of the design process, engineers must predict the performance of their LED system and determine if it will meet specifications at real operating temperatures and electrical drive conditions. The ETΦ™ family of LED Characterization Systems (also known as ETO) from Orb Optronix (Kirkland, WA) measures the complete electrical, thermal, and optical characteristics of LEDs.

Graphical System Design Software

National Instruments, Austin, TX, has introduced LabVIEW 2009 graphical system design software for control, test, and embedded system development. New virtualization technology for multicore systems offers compiler improvements that enhance field-programmable gate array (FPGA) design. The software enables deployment of code to wireless sensor networks for building industrial measurement and monitoring systems. It also features new solutions for testing multiple wireless standards such as WLAN, GPS, and WiMAX systems on a single hardware platform. The Real-Time Hypervisor software combines the LabVIEW Real-Time module with operating system capabilities to enable users to run Windows XP and LabVIEW Real-Time side-by-side on the same controller. Built-in math libraries contain more than 1,000 functions ranging from point-by-point signal processing to configuration-based implementations. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/22928-120
