HP Z200

Hewlett-Packard, Palo Alto, CA, has introduced the HP Z200 workstation computer for engineers and designers using CAD software. Also introduced are two monitors: the HP ZR22w and HP ZR24w Performance Displays. The HP Z200 offers dual-core processor options based on the next-generation Intel® processors, as well as quad-core processor options based on the enterprise-class Intel Xeon® 3400 series. The workstation is designed with a convertible mini-tower, tool-less chassis, and FireWire® and USB ports located on the front of the system. It includes an 89% efficient power supply, and offers the WattSaver feature, which uses less than one watt when the workstation is in powered-down mode. The displays feature a brushed aluminum industrial design, and incorporate in-plane switching panel technology. They are available in 21.5" and 24" diagonal sizes. The displays also deliver 16.7 million colors and up to 97% coverage of the sRGB gamut, the standard color space for engineering applications. They feature an eight-way stand for adjustment of height, tilt, swivel, and pivot.

Optical Replication

OPCO Laboratory, Fitchburg, MA, offers a replication process that duplicates the profile of a precision optical surface from a master. The process can produce a range of both ruled and holographic diffraction gratings, reflective and transmission holographic optical elements, and dual-wavelength gratings, as well as plano and conic sections. Substrate materials include glass, silicon carbide, ceramic, and metals such as beryllium, aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel. Additional mounting holes may be incorporated into a metal replica.

Data Converter

Pentek, Upper Saddle River, NJ, offers the CobaltTM 71620 multichannel, high-speed data converter that uses Xilinx Virtex-6 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology. This XMC module connects to HF or IF ports for communications, radar, and telemetry applications. It includes three Texas Instruments ADS5485 200-MHz, 16-bit A/Ds that deliver an input bandwidth of 350 MHz. A dual-channel TI DAC5688 800-MHz, 16-bit D/A provides two wideband analog outputs. Built-in 2x, 4x, and 8x interpolation filters and a digital upconverter translate real or complex baseband input signals to any IF center frequency up to 360 MHz. Four separate DRAM banks of 256 MB dedicate separate resources to I/O streams and processor requirements. The module may be optioned with QDRII+ banks, each 8 MB deep, to provide a memory resource for structures like data-streaming FIFOs.

Weld Inspection Scanner

Olympus NDT, Waltham, MA, has introduced the COBRA, a manual scanner designed to inspect welds in pipes with diameters as small as 0.84". It is used alongside the OmniScan® MX Phased Array flaw detector with the 16:128 module and OmniScan MXU software. It also features a low vertical profile to allow rotation around the pipe when adjacent obstructions are as close as 12 mm. The spring-loaded design can clamp onto carbon steel and stainless steel pipes of various diameters.
