Made for a number of industrial communications applications such as servo system platforms and motion control, the microcontroller comes with two ARM 946E cores, two CAN channels, two 10/100 Mbit Ethernet MACs with HW extension for real-time protocols, and motion control logic capability. It is versatile, with the EUROS real-time operating system built in to operate the ARMs independently. The MAC ports support real-time protocols over Ethernet through hardware extensions. The microcontroller also has an integrated complex-motion control block that can run any electronic motor right from the IC. It is designed to keep power dissipation so low it doesn't need heatsinks or fans.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
