The Kontron CP-HDD-S-KIT enables OEMS and system integrators to setup storage and RAID
solutions in a number of applications such as video surveillance, image
processing and infotainment. The Kontron storage solution can be integrated in
existing CompactPCI installations, reducing development efforts and time to market.
harsh environments, the Kontron
storage solution CP-HDD-S-KIT was tested to railway standards for shock
and vibration (EN50155) and offers an extended operating temperature range of
-40 to +85C. The Kontron CP-HDD-S carrier boards consist of an aluminum frame with a mounted carrier
PCB which can host one 2.5 inch HDD or SSD drive of which the latter is also
available for the full extended
temperature. For mechanical stability, two (optionally available) metal guide pins can
be installed in the backplane to secure the carrier board for additional shock
and vibration resistance.
The SATA II compliant
Kontron storage solution CP-HDD-S-KIT is a 3U CompactPCI carrier
solution for 2.5 inches HDDs and SSDs. It consists of one or two carrier boards
plus an easy to integrate backplane. Its design allows the robust and versatile Kontron
CP-HDD-S-KIT to be easily installed in all 19 inch enclosures, regardless of
whether 3U or 6U CompactPCI. This flexibility makes the Kontron CP-HDD-S-KIT a fit
for various applications in transportation, military, aerospace and industrial automation environments.
The Kontron storage solution CP-HDD-S-KIT carrier boards provide LEDs for
activity and error indication. The carrier boards are fully hot pluggable,
ensuring fast maintenance without the need to shutdown the running system. For high-speed read and write access, SATA II is supported on the Kontron
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
