Embedded Computing/Processing
Logic PD
Logic PD Torpedo + Wireless System on Module
The Logic PD Torpedo + Wireless (T+W) System on Module is embedded technology that encapsulates the most complex design components on a dime-sized board and offers wireless capabilities, high performance, and the lowest power consumption available. 
OEMs employ the T+W SOM to design end products easier and deliver them to market faster. This SOM offers designers a tiny, off-the-shelf wireless interface that enables remote connectivity and eliminates the local user interface. It allows developers to dramatically condense hardware space requirements and increase system performance.
Ten times smaller than the competition, the T+W SOM can provide instant on functionality by loading mission-critical drivers and peripherals in the Linux BSP. This supporting software is highly attractive to companies that develop life-critical battlefield and medical devices as it makes new technical developments possible. Customized to meet specific product requirements, this advancement enables Logic PD SOM customers to develop battery-powered devices that power on significantly faster than competing end user products, and give end users the ability to use their devices faster and for longer periods of time.

The T+W SOM is FCC certified, which saves customers significant time and money by reducing design risk and shortening the final EMC testing phase. Logic PD developed the T+W SOM based on Texas Instruments' DaVinci DM3730 video processor and WiLink 7.0 combo connectivity solution. The SOM provides PC-like speeds up to 1 GHz, long battery life, and a WL1283 wireless chipset that includes 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth with a roadmap to support GPS.  Based on these technologies Logic PD developed the hardware, software, and technology integration for its embedded solution.

Latest Analysis
Advertised as the "Most Powerful Tablet Under $100," the Kindle Fire HD 6 was too tempting for the team at iFixit to pass up. Join us to find out if inexpensive means cheap, irreparable, or just down right economical. It's teardown time!
The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team £100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
