Ethernet board supports GigE Vision realtime imaging standard Product News 7/27/2005 Post a comment An off-the-shelf OEM board can add GigE connectivity to industrial machine-vision and consumer cameras. The Pleora iPORT PT1000-VB In-Camera Engine lets you integrate high-performance GigE connectivity into almost any camera simply by changing out the back-end interface electronics. eeProductCenter Senior Tech Editor Alex Mendelsohn reports.
PC/104 board runs eight simultaneous A/D channels Product News 7/25/2005 Post a comment Check out this less-than-$1000 analog/digital plug-in board. Operating at 100-ksample/s/channel rates, this PC/104 form-factor plug-in touts simultaneous channel sampling, a capability that's usually found only on more costly cards.
512-Mbyte microSD flash card hits the market Product News 7/20/2005 Post a comment SanDisk has introduced a 512-Mbyte microSD card, which it claims is the largest capacity available in this form factor. It also plans to have a 1-Gbyte microSD card by the end of the year and a 2-Gbyte version in 2006.
Compact converters put logic on fiber Product News 7/19/2005 Post a comment Test-and-measurement house Highland Technology now has both electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical converters that are compatible with the company's digital delay/pulse generator and other VME-packaged electrical/optical converter products. Use these to transmit error-free data over long distances using fiber.
Protecting the HDMI interface Design How-To 7/16/2005 Post a comment The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) combines a high-speed unidirectional TMDS data link with low speed, bi-directional control and status links (DDC and CEC) and configuration protocols in a single user-friendly high-performance connector. Delicate signaling and precise protocols must endure serious misuse without complaint. For any I/O signal exposed to the outside world, ESD strikes are a constant danger during interconnection. A single spark can render an entire entertainment s
Single-board computer extends to 1 GHz Product News 7/13/2005 Post a comment American ELTEC now offers a high-speed (approaching 1 GHz) version of its BAB 760 PowerPC single-board computer, courtesy of IBM's PowerPC 750-GX processor, to extend the system's applications in medical, telecommunications, and industrial automation.
Evalue goes fanless on 1 GHz ECM-3612 1 3.5 inch SBC Product News 7/12/2005 Post a comment The new ECM-3612 single board computer (SBC) from Evalue is designed for low profile, fanless applications. The compact 3.5" embedded micro board incorporates a passively cooled, low-power VIA Eden 1 GHz/667 MHz processor, and 128 MB SDRAM.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
