TI TAS3208 and TAS3204 Audio Processors
Texas Instruments’ TAS3208 and TAS3204 audio processors target the digital television and MP3 player docking station markets with cost-effective integrated audio solutions and easy-to-use development tools. The TAS3208 is designed to be the core device in flat-panel digital TV audio systems, and the TAS3204 is optimized to provide high-quality sound processing for MP3 player docking stations.

Atmel ATA6831 Driver IC for DC Motor Control
The Atmel ATA6831 is a driver IC with enhanced PWM performance for smooth DC motor control with reduced noise. The ATA6831 is designed to control, via a microcontroller, two DC motors or up to three different loads in automotive and industrial applications such as flap control for a cash dispenser.

DSM Computer 96M4261o Industrial Slot CPU Card
The 96M4261o industrial slot CPU card, by DSM Computer, is equipped with an Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processor. An internal PCI Express x1 interface for LAN and a PCI Express x16 interface specially for graphic applications permit the data to be transferred fast and reliably thanks to the high computing power.

The VMETRO PMC-FPGA05-ADC1 is a Xilinx Virtex(TM)-5 LX110 FPGA based PMC module with integrated dual analog input channels. By closely coupling the high-performance FPGA processing and the analog I/O, the PMC-FPGA05-ADC1 is ideal for applications requiring maximum performance with minimal latencies such as Software Defined Radio (SDR), Signal Intelligence (SigInt) and data recording. The analog input front end incorporates dual channel analog input with a full power input bandwidth of between 100 kHz and 110 MHz with a Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) of 68dB and a Spurious Free Dynamic Range (SFDR) of 82dB. The full scale analog input is +10dBm (2V pk-pk). Front panel clock and trigger inputs are also available.

NI USB Modules for CAN and LIN
National Instruments offers USB modules for high-speed and low-speed/fault-tolerant Controller Area Network (CAN) and Local Interconnect Network (LIN) monitoring, logging and testing, combining the quality and performance of NI CAN software and hardware with the benefits of Hi-Speed USB. With a low price point and a synchronization option, engineers now have an easy, cost-effective and portable solution for connecting their PCs to CAN and LIN devices and networks for device validation, test and in-vehicle data logging.
