Kontron's Embedded Box PC CB511 has been developed to operate in
especially tough environmental conditions, and is equipped with an Intel Atom
N270, energy efficient and is designed for the extended temperature range of
-15 to +60C. The Kontron Embedded Box PC CB 753 with Intel Core 2 Duo processor
features two PCI slots and a PCI Express Mini Card slot for flexible
configuration, making it useful for a wide range of OEM applications.
Kontron's Embedded Box PCs CB 511 and CB 753 can be
integrated into OEM applications in the fields of automation, digital signage,
gaming and infotainment. Both Box PCs have different mounting options for
vertical and horizontal mounting or for rack-mount. The MTBF (Mean Time Between
Failures) has been specified at approximately 50,000 hours (Kontron CB 753:
40,000 hours) and are CE certified and designed to meet UL. The Kontron
Embedded Box PCs CB 511 and CB 753 will be available in EMEA in April 2011.
Kontron Embedded Box PCs support Linux Embedded, Microsoft Windows XP, Windows
XP Embedded and Windows CE 6.0.

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.
