California Eastern Laboratories' encompass the Silicon Labs transceiver platforms (the Si1000 and
Si1002) with frequency range options of 868 and 915 MHz covering the European
and Americas sub-gigahertz ISM bands. The modules support multiple software
platforms to comply with US and European operating standards.
modules focus on long range low power wireless applications. They are well
suited for industrial sensor networks, metering and other non line of sight
The MeshConnect Sub-G modules support multiple software stacks
including Synapse SNAP embedded OS, wireless M-Bus, Silicon Labs EZMac and
CEL's API. The SNAP software stack supports comprehensive mesh networks with
ease of use. CEL's 868 MHz Sub-G module supports the wireless M-Bus stack.
MeshConnect Sub-G modules have low power consumption and their link
budgets provide transmission in non line of sight applications such as lighting
control, industrial sensor networks, serial wire replacement, metering and
irrigation. At +13 and +20 dBm power outputs, the new Sub-G modules offer 868
MHz (Europe) and 915 MHz (Americas) ISM band options. As certified and
qualified modules, the MeshConnect Sub-G solutions eliminate the need for
certifications, reducing overall system cost and accelerating time to market.
The new modules have an additional
optional flash memory (in addition to the Si1000/Si1002 built in Flash) located
on the module enabling over the air software updates. This feature will allow
system implementers to immediately field units and remotely upgrade their
software with new releases. The modules' high link budgets allow for greater
sensitivity and power outputs.
The MeshConnect Sub-G modules are sampling now. Mass
Production is available June 2011.† Part
numbers are ZICM0868P0-1 (868 MHz Europe) and ZICM0900P2-1 (900 MHz
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
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.
