The new 67C3
is a single slot, OpenVPX, 6U, Multi-function I/O and serial communications card.
VME, Gigabit Ethernet and Serial RapidIO (sRIO) or PCI Express (PCIe) control
interface options enable users to take advantage of the higher speed, switched
fabric communication architectures, offering significantly greater capability.
The enhanced motherboard contains six independent module slots,
each of which can be populated with a function-specific module and can now be
controlled by VME, dual Gigabit Ethernet and sRIO or PCIe. This unique design
eliminates the need for multiple, specialized, single function cards by
providing a single board solution for a broad assortment of signal interface
modules such as, Synchro/Resolver/ LVDT/RVDT Simulation and Measurement, A/D,
D/A, Discrete/Differential/TTL/CMOS I/O, RTD, Encoder
and communications such as RS232/422/485, MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429 and CANBus.
This approach increases packaging density, saves enclosure slots, reduces power
consumption and adds continuous background BIT testing. Further, the 67C3 provides a
highly cost-effective, off-the-shelf alternative to a custom-built solution.
The 67C3 is available
with an operating temperature range of -40 to + 85C. Pricing for a rugged,
conduction-cooled 67C3, configured with 96 programmable 0 V to 60 V discrete
channels starts at $9,982 in quantities of 100+, with a 12 to 14-week delivery
Parallax Inc. is known for developing the Basic Stamp microcontroller development board and educational accessory kits. In addition to developing a user-friendly educational platform to learn about 8-bit microcontrollers and software programming, it created a multicore 32-bit chip called the Propeller.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
