The PMAC2-PC/104 from Delta Tau uses a high level of integration to achieve this small form factor. The main board has only three main components the Motorola DSP CPU with embedded RAM, a servo ASIC and flash memory for program backup.
As a series of boards in the PC/104 form factor, this controller can be installed in a PC/104 stack or act as a stand-alone controller with serial communications, including RS-232, USB, or Ethernet. Because it uses standard PMAC2 firmware, it has all of the software capabilities of any PMAC2 controller.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
