Elma's Type 39c HA line comes with 9U cPCI backplanes, which allow hot-swapping of power supplies with 47-pin connectors. The line also comes with pluggable fan tray headers and optional shelf management modules, with redundancy options available to be built in. The backplanes come in standard cPCI, H.110 or PICMG 2.16 options. Made with an economical sheet metal design and full pluggability, the chassis are compliant to the latest PICMG specifications and IEEE 1101.10/.11. They come in 1U-4U heights in horizontal-mounting orientations, and have side-to-side 200CFM (300LFM) cooling, rear I/O options, and 300 mm depths. The company also offers custom chassis. Other options include an intelligent platform management interface shelf manager option and a Dual Star design on the PICMG 2.16 configurations.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
