  • Numerical Mathematics Consortium Revises Open Mathematics Semantics
    The Numerical Mathematics Consortium today announced the latest revision to a technical specification introduced earlier this year that defines an open mathematics semantics standard for numerical algorithm development. This update includes newly ratified functions from classes that include polynomials and vector analysis. In addition to the new function definitions, the consortium resolved significant technical issues that simplify ratification of new functions.
  • Elma Bustronic Debuts cPCI Backplane Low Profile Bridge Modules
    Elma Bustronic has launched versatile cPCI backplane low profile bridge modules that permit 33 MHz and 66 MHz systems to be expanded across two or even three backplanes. The flat, unobtrusive design allows the bridge module to be plugged into the rear of the backplane without obstructing rear IO modules. Rear IO modules fit over the top and can simply be plugged over the bridges.
