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
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
