MCU/iChip Evaluation Board

Connect One™ (San Jose, CA) offers a reference design and a corresponding evaluation board that bring together Microchip’s PIC24FJ64GA006 16-bit microcontroller (MCU) for application control, and the CO2128 iChip for secure, reliable TCP/IP connectivity to LAN and GPRS networks. Using the evaluation board, developers can quickly and easily develop an IP-en abled embedded system where the application resides on the PIC24 MCU and the networking and security are provided by the CO2128 iChip. The evaluation board provides dual-core Internet secure architecture where all con nectivity features are isolated from the application, providing a natural firewall. The PIC24F MCU provides application developers with RS-232/RS-485 serial connections, one serial peripheral interface, eight general-purpose I/O pins, an analog- to-digital converter, and 64 KB Flash and 8 KB RAM memory. With simple integration of an MII or RMII PHY, a 10/100 BaseT Ethernet link can be created. A UART connection allows users to operate at a baud rate of up to 1 Mbps between the PIC24 and the iChip. The CO2128 operates at an industrial temperature range of -40° to +85° C and is RoHScompliant. For Free Info Visit Here.

FPGA Mezzanine Card Module

VMETRO (Houston, TX) has released a FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC/VITA 57) module. The ADC510, available in air-cooled and conduction- cooled rugged versions, integrates two 12-bit 500MHz A/D chips for use in DSP applications such as signal intelligence (SIGINT), electronic counter measures (ECM), and radar. This design, based on the emerging VITA 57.1 standard, makes it easier for developers to integrate FPGAs into their embedded system designs. The ADC510 supports two Texas Instruments ADS5463 ADC devices, with each device supporting a sampling rate up to 500 MSPS and providing 12-bits of digital output. The ADC device interfaces are routed to the FMC connector to enable an FPGA on a baseboard to directly control and receive data. There is a choice of sample clock sources for the ADC510 including an onboard source that supports sampling rates of 300, 320, 400, and 500 MSPS as well as the ability to utilize an external sample clock. Input and output triggers are provided to enable multiple ADC510 modules to be synchronized to increase the number of input channels. For Free Info Visit Here.

System-On-Module Standard

MEN Micro Inc. (Ambler, PA) has announced the ESMexpress® System-On-Module Standard, a new computing standard in development to be the ANSIVITA 59 (RSE Rugged System- On-Module Express) standard. In conjunction with the new standard, they have also an - nounced the XM1 featuring the first-generation Intel® Atom® processor (Z530 at 1.6 GHz or Z510 at 1.1 GHz) based on 45-nm technology coupled with 1 GB of soldered DDR2 SDRAM for significantly lower power dissipation, reduction in design costs, and space-saving design flexibility. ESMexpress combines this model with advanced cooling technologies, and the latest serial buses and rugged components to ensure safe, reliable operation in harsh environments found in areas as diverse as the railway, avionics, industrial automation, medical engineering and mobile industries. ESMexpress provides for extreme resistance against shock and vibration. Eight screws secure the module to the carrier board. In addition, a mechanically robust connector specified for MIL and railway applications supports differential signals with up to 8 GHz, features a stacking height of 5 mm with a minimum tolerance of +/-0.3 mm, is equipped with fixed contacts for power supply, and is specified for an operating temperature range of -55°C to +125°C. The Intel-based XM1 offers a screened temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. The electrical signals are distributed on two 120-pin connectors and are only defined for modern serial buses. For PCI Express there are four single lane ports (4 ×1) and one port that can be configured as 1 ×16, 1 ×8, 2 ×4 or 2 ×1. Other ports include three 1-Gigabit Ethernet (also as 10- Gigabit), eight USB, three SATA, SDVO, LVDS, HD Audio, several utility signals, and a single 12V power supply. For Free Info Visit Here.

Capacitive Sensor

Balluff, Florence, KY, has introduced a new capacitive sensor line for proximity and level detection applications. The line features more than 250 models in a variety of body styles, sensing ranges, harsh environmental ratings, and advanced functionality. The line’s level-control capacitive sensors can detect solids or liquids through the walls of non-metallic containers, without direct contact to the target material. The capacitive proximity sensors can detect metallic or non-metallic targets at distances up to 25 mm, independent of color or surface texture. Standard housing materials include PVC, PBT, POM, and stainless steel. Special application types include level and proximity sensors for high-temperature environments (up to 480°F), miniature sensors with remote adjustment for confined spaces, sensors with IP69K rating for heavy-duty environments, and sensors for leak detection in chemical or pharmaceutical equipment.
