Multi-core Industrial Servers

Kontron (Poway, CA) has released 2U and 4U KISS industrial servers that bring Intel® Core™2 Duo processor performance to PICMG 1.0 based PCI/ISA applications. The ultra quiet (<35 dB) industrial servers are designed for applications that require high data processing performance without the need for high-speed PCI Express features. Designed around the Intel® 945G chipset with 1066 MHz front side bus and Intel® ICH7 I/O controller hub, the Kontron KISS PCI-759 industrial servers offer scalable processor performance based on the Intel® LGA 755 socket up to the E6400 (2 × 2.16 GHz) Intel® Core™2 Duo processor. Support for up to 4 GB of DDR2 dual channel RAM is available. With a TDP of only 65 Watts, the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor brings double the performance with power consumption similar to an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor. The Kontron KISS PCI-759 servers are ideal for either upgrading existing applications or for implementing new, power-sensitive industrial PCI/ISA systems. The Kontron KISS PCI-759 industrial servers offer a full range of I/O interfaces for maximum application flexibility: up to 4 × 3Gb/s SATA II for fast hard drive access, 2 × GbE, 7 × USB 2.0, and one parallel and two serial interfaces.

Ruggedized MicroTCA Chassis

Elma Electronic Inc. (Fremont, CA) has introduced a ruggedized ATR chassis for MicroTCA. The MicroTCA chassis is an ARINC 404A Full- Size ATR Long Enclosure, often used in commercial and military aviation. The rugged enclosure features modified front panels that can be secured to the chassis, providing more protection for shock and vibration. Shock absorbers/dampers can also be added to the enclosure for extra protection. Thermal management can be achieved via either convection or conduction-cooling. The chassis meets the MIL-STD-810E shock/vibration requirements and MIL-STD-461 for electromagnetic interference. The vibration and shock tests were performed according to the IEC 61587 1 and VITA 47 standards in six axes (three spatial axes, with the system rotated by 180 degrees for each axis). The backplane holds six AMCs, one MCH (MicroTCA Carrier Hub), and one power module. Single module slots in the full size are standard, but other configurations are possible with the enclosure’s modular design. For Free Info Visit Here.

Fiber Optic Bus Extension Systems

AIM-USA (St. Omaha, NE) has introduced the new FOMIS and FOL429 fiber optic bus extension systems. The FOMIS (Fiber Optic MILbus Stub Extension) product provides a highly modular and scalable system capable of extending MIL-STD-1553 bus stubs up to 500 meters. FOMIS systems can also be combined with the FOL429 modules to provide up to 500 meter extensions of ARINC429 data links. FOMIS and FOL429 are designed to support test applications, such as vehicle launch sites, anechoic chambers, and engine testing, that require an extended distance between the Unit Under Test (UUT) and the remote test equipment. The FOMIS system consists of a FOMIS-F (or FOL429-F) Front-End module and FOMIS-L (or FOL429-L) remote/lab module. The Front-End and Lab modules are interconnected via a COTS fiber optic link (62.5/125uM multimode fiber). EMC resistant housing allows operation in electromagnetic fields up to 200V/m. Options supporting extended temperature and standalone (battery powered) operation are available. The FOMIS-L is housed in a 19" rack mountable chassis. System operation is completely plug and play, and no software or configuration is required. For Free Info Visit Here.

1U MicroTCA Platform

The MTC5070 from Performance Technologies (Rochester, NY) is a highly integrated 1U MicroTCA™- compliant platform that can support up to six mid-size, single AdvancedMC™ (AMC) modules. The fully deployable MicroTCA platform meets the needs for high-performance, cost-effective, and modular processing in low-profile, appliance-style applications. PCI-Express® and Ethernet switching are supported to each slot. Storage is accommodated by direct SATA/SAS slot-to-slot connections between the AMC sites and the onboard platform management subsystem provides MicroTCA compliant carrier and shelf management. The MTC5070, AdvancedMC modules, and NexusWare® enabling software offer an optimized application-ready foundation for telecom, wireless, aerospace and defense, and commercial applications. The platform features front-to-back cooling, which is critical for NEBS installations, with both push and pull fans to cool up to 40W per mid-size single slot. AC input or DC input options are available with a removable 300 W power supply. The front I/O panel features LEDs, a reset switch, and a platform management console port. The rear panel has dual 10/100/1000 Mb Ethernet uplink ports, a 10/100 Mb Ethernet out-of-band platform management port, power input, and a power switch.

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.
