AXIOMTEK SBC86620 Industrial Mini ITX Board
The AXIOMTEK SBC86620 single board computer is a cost-effective Mini ITX motherboard. The low power Mini ITX SBC supports the AMD Geode(TM) LX family processors, which consumes only 0.9 watt. This Mini ITX motherboard lowers the total cost of ownership by reducing customer’s system implementation costs and improving time-to-market by standard I/O outlets.

Acrosser AR-B1892 Mini-ITX SBC
The Acrosser AR-B1892 single board computer is designed for Gaming and Embedded applications. In general, it is for applications that typically requires reliable and powerful computing, superior graphical performance, multiple I/O configurations, and a long product life support. The AR-B1892 is powered by the latest Intel Core 2 Duo, Core Duo, and Celeron M processors.

TI ADS5547 and ADS5527 ADCs
Texas Instruments recently released two 14- and 12-bit, 210-MSPS (mega samples per second) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The ADS5547 and ADS5527 provide the high performance at 210 MSPS with up to 73.3-dBFS signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and 85-dBc spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR) at 70 MHz input frequency. This high performance brings benefits such as better range and resolution for radar and imaging, more accurate power amplifier characterization in digital pre-distortion solutions and higher quality for video and imaging systems.
