Momentum Data Systems VCP Development Boards
Momentum Data Systems’ VCP1500/VCP1700 PCI Development boards are a new line of PCI based hardware platforms for the development of PNX1500 TriMedia/Nexperia Processor, including PNX0190 and PNX9520, or PNX1700 applications and algorithms where the PC is used at the I/O subsystem during development. The VCP1500 can also be used for TriMedia TSSA based algorithm development for PNX8950 platforms.

Aldec Active-HDL Lattice Designer Edition Lite
The Aldec Active-HDL Lattice Designer Edition Lite is a FPGA design tool. It supports mixed VHDL and Verilog simulation for Lattice’s leading FPGA devices, including the 90nm Extreme Performance(TM) LatticeSC(TM) family as well as the 90nm LatticeECP2M(TM) family, which is the industry’s only low-cost FPGA family with unequaled on-chip memory capacity and 3.125 Gbps SERDES I/O.

Summit SMS11 Programmable Monitor-Sequencer-Reset IC
Summit Microelectronics’ SMS11 is a programmable monitor/sequencer/reset IC designed for communication and consumer electronics applications. With non-volatile programmability the SMS11 addresses virtually any multi-output power supply application that requires monitoring and sequencing.

TI TVP9010 HDTV Development Platform
Texas Instruments’ TVP9010 is an integrated high-definition television (HDTV) processor and development platform. Using sophisticated video processing techniques and based on TI’s world class mixed signal system-on-a-chip (SoC) design expertise, the highly integrated TVP9010 HDTV processor produces exceptionally high quality, full HD 1080p resolution images, as part of a cost-effective solution that fulfills the broadcast requirements for ATSC and DVB-T standards.

Atmel AT68166 16-Mbit Rad-Hard SRAMs
The AT68166, by Atmel, is a 16-Mbit SRAM packaged in a hermetic Multi-Chip Module (MCM) for space applications. MCM packaging technology offers the advantages of reducing PCB real estate, the number of individual components and improves overall electronic effectiveness. This allows a reduction of the PCB area by 50% with a weight savings of 75% compared to four 4-Mbit packages.

IBASE MB899X Mini-ITX Motherboard
The IBASE MB899X Mini-ITX motherboard supports the latest Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo processor and the Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express chipset. The new board comes with a PCI-E x16 slot providing up to 30 times the throughput of the PCI bus, translating into a bandwidth of 4 Gbps (Gigabytes per second).

Aeroflex A-GPS Mobile Handset Test Solutions
Aeroflex’s fully integrated solution for testing A-GPS (Assisted-GPS) enabled mobile handsets is based on the Aeroflex 6103 AIME and 6103 AIME/CT mobile handset test systems. It has been designed to address the rapidly emerging development and conformance test requirements for A-GPS-based mobile handsets by testing A-GPS implementation in the laboratory thereby eliminating the need for costly field trials and reducing time-to-market. The solution is designed to support the development lifecycle of A-GPS devices from initial R&D through to conformance test.
