CebaTech C2R Compiler
The CebaTech C2R Compiler is the first C-to-RTL compiler capable of working efficiently on large, complex designs at a high level of abstraction and then automating the process of creating high-performance hardware solutions. The C2R Compiler enables full-chip designs to be architected, verified, and implemented using ANSI C as the design language in a flow that is two to three times faster than using the traditional RTL-based design approach.

Samsung Double-Sided Mobile LCD Panel
Samsung Electronics has created the first LCD panel that can produce independent images on each side of a mobile LCD display. Samsung’s new double-sided LCD can show two entirely different pictures or sets of visual data simultaneously on the front and back of the same screen. Other conventional double-sided LCDs can only show a reverse image of the same video data.

FTDI DLP-VLOG Data Logging Platform
The DLP-VLOG, from FTDI, is a development platform based on its Vinculum Universal Serial Bus (USB) host controller IC. The platform, configured as a simple data logging application, is designed to read temperature, humidity and voltage data, and store it on the supplied 32MB USB flash drive. A Microchip microcontroller used together with the Vinculum IC serves to illustrate how to provide virtually unlimited data storage to a small microcontroller. The DLP-VLOG provides a complete reference design on which to base new Vinculum development as well as being a starting point for similar logging applications.

PL-01030 Compact Fanless Micro PC
The PL-01030, from WIN Enterprises, is a compact, low-power, high-performance device for the OEM market. The versatile device can be used as an entry-level micro PC embedded computer. Fanless operation also makes it attractive for industrial control. The PL-01030 features an AMD(R) Geode(TM) LX800 low-power processor, as well as 2 x LAN, 4 x USB2.0, 4 x COM, CF and LPT I/O. The lightweight chassis is dust-proof, and its compact size makes it ideal for point-of-sale (POS), kiosks, medical, entertainment, and general embedded applications.
