PCIe XMC Module

Innovative Integration (Simi Valley, CA) has introduced the X6-RX, a flexible receiver that integrates IF digitizing with signal processing on an XMC IO module. The module provides up to 24 configurable receiver channels with a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA signal processing core, and a high-performance PCI Express/PCI host interface. IF recorders can log both digitized raw data and baseband channels in real-time, sustaining rates over 2 GB/s. It features four, 16-bit 130 MSPS A/Ds plus a dual digital downconverter (DDC) ASIC. IF frequencies of up to 300 MHz are supported. The sample clock is sourced from either a low-jitter PLL or external input. Multiple cards can be synchronized for sampling and downconversion.

Flat Panel PC

WinSystems (Arlington, TX) has introduced the PPC3-G-6.5, a 6.5" open frame, color, flat panel PC based on a PC/104-Plus single board computer (SBC) that operates from -20°C to +70°C. It includes a resistive touch screen integrated into an aluminum, corrosion-resistant chassis about 2" thick; the open frame chassis (without a front bezel) permits flexible mounting of the system for OEMs and integrators with content-rich applications. It is suitable for instrumentation, industrial automation, and control applications with tight system integration and minimal space requirements. The outdoor-use, 6.5" diagonal color TFT flat panel display features a resolution of 640 × 480 pixels, and a high luminance of 500 cd/m2(nits) and uses two long-life CCFL lamps that are user-replaceable. The display has a contrast ratio of 600:1, while the screen offers an anti-reflective coating.

Electic Motors

NovaTorque (Sunnyvale, CA) offers Premium Plus+ electric motors in 2 and 3 HP @ 1800 RPM as a motor system paired with a variable frequency drive, or as standalone motors. The 2-HP version has a full-load rated efficiency of 91.5% at 1800 RPM and is available in a 143T frame, and the 3-HP version has a full-load rated efficiency of 90.5% and is available in a 143T or 182T configuration. Foot and flange mountings are available. The motors are based on the company’s stator and rotor hub geometry. The laminated field poles used in the stator have conical end-surfaces instead of perpendicular flat cross-sections. The rotor hubs have conical shapes that match the end-surfaces of the field poles. The increased surface area at the rotor/stator interface concentrates the magnetic flux.

Brushless Motor/Drives

Dunkermotoren USA (Elgin, IL) has introduced the BG75 series modular brushless permanent magnet motors driven by an integrated servo motor drive. The series is composed of 2.95" squared high-power-density motors in three stack lengths. The motor peak torque varies from 22.1 in-lb for the BG75×25, to 44.2 in-lb for the BG75x50, and up to 55.7 in-lb for the largest model, the BG75×75. Axial lengths are 4.53", 5.51", and 6.5", respectively. The modular construction of the series is available with integral electronic drive and precision position encoder with 4,096 counts. The power electronics provide a range of input voltages from 10 to 50VDC, and deliver up to 50A peak. Available communication protocols are CANopen and Profibus.

Hexagonal LED Chip

The Honeycomb™ LED Chip from Verticle, Inc. (Dublin, CA) is a vertically-structured LED chip developed for high-power LED applications. A wafer can yield 15% more hexagonal chips than square or rectangular chips of equivalent size. Hexagonal chips also aid in the current spreading, with the resulting higher light output than conventional chips. Another advantage is the light output enhancement after packaging. The Honeycomb chip produces a beam profile which is much closer to the circular shape of circular lens used in optic design. The beam profile of a typical square or rectangular chip, when combined with circular lens, is normally distorted.
