Software Verification Plug-In

LDRA (Monks Ferry, Wirral, UK) has released the TBsecure plug-in complete with the Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute (SEI) CERT C secure coding standard. TBsecure identifies security vulnerabilities and enables implementation of the CERT C Secure Coding Standard version 1.0. LDRA’s TBsecure plugs into TBvision, a module within the LDRA tool suite that enables developers to easily see how the source code performs against security vulnerabilities, fault-detection, and adherence to the required quality standards. As its primary role, TBsecure applies the CERT C secure coding rules and relays findings to TBvision, which graphically shows code quality, fault detection, and avoidance measures through call graphs, flow graphs, and code review reports. The CERT C Secure Coding Standard provides rules and recommendations for secure coding in the C programming language, in order to eliminate insecure coding practices and undefined behaviors that lead to exploitable vulnerabilities. The application of the secure coding standard leads to higher quality systems that are robust and more resistant to attack. Rules and recommendations included in this CERT C Programming Language Secure Coding Standard are designed to be operating system and platform independent. Once established, these standards can be used as a metric to evaluate source code using an automated process. For Free Info Click Here.

EMI Filter

LCR Electronics (Norristown, PA) offers a series of doublestage, low-profile EMI filters that provides easier assembly and reduced material costs. The 088 Series integrates a high attenuation EMI filter and IEC power entry socket with an illuminated power switch and either a fuse or a re-settable circuit breaker into one compact package. The RoHS-compliant 088 Series EMI filters are ideal for use in general purpose applications where electrical currents can cause damage to system components. The filters’ low profile makes them suitable for applications where space is a premium, such as 1U rack configurations. The series uses either fast-on terminals or lead wires with customized lengths and terminals for installation in almost any application. The 088 series filters are available in 4A to 10A rated current, 250 VAC 50/60 Hz, in both general purpose and low leakage current version. The high potential voltage for 088 series filters is 1,450 VDC line-to-line and 2,250 VDC line-to-ground. The Insertion loss measured in a 50 Ohm system ranges from 20 dBA to 79 dBA in common mode and 13 dBA to 81 dBA in differential mode, depending on the filter current rating.

Pressure Indicating Sensor Film

Sensor Products Inc. (Madison, NJ) announces the Pressurex Zero® tactile pressure-indicating sensor films. Pressurex Zero characterizes contact surface pressure down to an extremely low 7.2 PSI (0.5 kg/cm2). It is an easy-to-use flexible film that is placed between contacting or mating surfaces to instantly and accurately measure and map pressure magnitude and distribution. Var iations in contact surface pressure are immediately visible by the impression made on the film. The spatial resolution of the film is fine enough to expose minute surface defects and other imperfections. The range for Pressurex Zero is 7.2 – 28 PSI. Pressurex comes in the form of a thin clear plastic sheet of 4 or 8 mil. It is available in eight different pressure ranges with the highest measuring impact up to 43,200 PSI. When placed between contacting surfaces, it instantaneously and permanently changes color directly proportional to the actual pressure applied. The precise pressure magnitude is easily determined by comparing color variation results to a color correlation chart. Pressurex can also be scanned through one of Sensor Product’s optical imaging systems. Pressurex is used in design, manufacturing, calibration, and quality control. Other applications include flow check for fuel cell stacks and squeeges. For Free Info Click Here.

Tiny DC/DC Converter

The RNM series 2000VDC isolated converter from RECOM (Brooklyn, NY) has a compact case size of 8.3 × 8.3 × 6.8 mm, and the pins fit into a standard 0.1" grid. The RNM converter features 1W of output power, and input and output voltages available in any combination from 3.3V to 15VDC and 1kVDC or 2kVDC isolation. The ambient operating temperature covers the full industrial range of -40°C to +85°C without derating and operation up to 100°C ambient is possible. Conversion efficiency is up to 84% and output ripple/noise is a respectable 100mVp-p. The extremely small physical size of the converter allows application designers either to reduce the size of their circuit boards or add extra features in the same sized PCB. The RNM converter is a fully tested and guaranteed component and has the EN-60950-1 safety certification (UL-60601-1 pending) so it can be used in time-constrained projects where the power supply must work first time, every time, or in safety critical applications. Typical applications are isolated power supplies for industrial controllers, medical equipment, and hand-held devices. For Free Info Click Here.

USB Data Acquisition Board

Data Translation (Marlboro, MA) has introduced the DT9818, a high performance, multifunction USB data acquisition board for OEMs. The DT9818 is aimed at embedded applications rather than the more common USB approach of connecting externally to the PC. The module runs completely on USB power and offers ±500V galvanic isolation, a critical feature for industrial embedded systems. The DT9818 board features 500 volt galvanic isolation that prevents ground loops, maximizes analog signal integrity, and protects the computer; true 16-bit resolution for both the analog input and analog output subsystems; and independent clocking and triggering for input and output subsystems for maximum flexibility. The DT9818 board provides 8 or 16 analog inputs, 2 analog outputs, 16 digital I/O lines, 2 counter timers, and allows simultaneous operation of all subsystems at throughput rates up to150kHz. The board-only OEM version allows the user to embed data acquisition capability directly into their USB system. Many software choices are available for application development from ready-to-measure programs like Measurement Applets and quickDAQ, to full graphical programming with Measure Foundry rapid application development builder.
