Elma Bustronic Corp.'s CompactPCI PlusIO
Backplane is compliant to the latest PICMG 2.30 specifications. The first
in the series is an 8-slot version in a 3U height. PICMG 2.30 expands the
backplane with serial point-to-point connections for high-speed data transfer
(PCIe, SATA, USB, Ethernet). The Elma Bustronic 8-slot version offers 1
CompactPCI PlusIO system slot, 4 CompactPCI PlusIO peripheral slots and 3
legacy slots. The system slot has connections for 4 x USB2, 4 x SATA, 4 x PCIe
and 2 x ETH.
The CompactPCI PlusIO Backplane
comes in a 3U height with a 12-layer stripline design. Standard FR-4 PCB
material was used on the 8-slot backplane and rear IO is supported. The lead-time is
2-4 weeks ARO.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
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
