The first in a family of VME multifunction I/O boards were designed specifically to
address the problems caused by the growing constraints on size, weight and
power in today's military platforms. It is also useful for commercial
applications that are similarly challenged. and can therefore make a
significant contribution to substantially enhanced performance and functional
acquisition becoming an increasingly common
requirement in military applications such as radar, image capture and
processing and video
tracking, the VME-6500
responds to the requirement to place data acquisition hardware as close as
possible to the sensors with its ability to operate over wide temperature
ranges and to withstand shock and
The VME-6500 features eight analog input channels,
eight analog output channels, 16 digital input channels and 16 digital output
channels. Each analog input channel is equipped with a 16-bit ADC
(analog-to-digital converter), and each analog output channel with a 16-bit
DAC (digital-to-analog converter). Analog inputs are software-programmable to
provide exceptional flexibility in sample rates, gains, filters and current
ranges, while analog outputs are similarly flexible with programmable voltage
and current rates, together with waveform generation.
Digital input channels are capable of multiple voltages
and current ranges, and feature programmable input thresholds and de-bounce
times. Digital outputs support high voltage and current drivers, and are
protected for short circuit, over current and over temperature conditions.
The VME-6500 is supported by WindowsÂ®, LinuxÂ® and
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
