Compact Embedded Computer

Mercury Computer Systems (Chelmsford, MA) has introduced the PowerBlock™ 50 system, a high-performance, ultra-compact embedded computer. The system’s modular architecture allows for flexible configurations of multiple processors, delivering well over 100 GFLOPS of processing power in a small, lightweight package. A fully configured PowerBlock 50 weighs less than 10 pounds and measures approximately 4" × 5" × 6". The system is available now as the PowerBlock 50 EDK (Engineering Development Kit), which is a complete software development platform. The EDK includes a PowerBlock 50 system, Linux BSP development environment, and a desktop heat rejection unit (HRU) to support the PowerBlock 50’s cooling requirements. The PowerBlock 50 EDK is customizable into configurations that include PowerQUICC™, Virtex™-4, and Intel processors, and SATA storage. Each configuration includes Gigabit Ethernet and RS-232 I/O interfaces. For Free Info Click Here.

Network Analysis Software

OMICRON Lab (Houston, TX) has released new operation software for its Bode 100 portable network analyzer, giving users access to an extended frequency range. With the release of Bode Analyzer Suite V2.2, OMICRON Lab has managed to reduce the lower frequency border down to 1 Hz, giving the Bode 100 a range of 1 Hz – 40 MHz for Gain/Phase and impedance measurements. This extended frequency range makes the Bode 100 suitable not only for classical network analysis but also for the analysis of control circuits (e.g. DC/DC Converters), audio and ultrasound measurements, and the measurement of piezoelectric sensors and transducers. Other features of the new operation software include a straightforward and intuitive graphical user interface and OLE compatible automation interface, which facilitates integration of the Bode 100 into automated measurement setups for a variety of manufacturing or quality control applications.
