WIN Enterprises MB-09015 Control Board
The MB-09015, from WIN Enterprises, is a high-performance network control board with dual Intel(R) Xeon(R) processors and ten GbE LAN Ports. The dual-socketed board is designed for network security and other demanding enterprise network applications, including anti-spam, antivirus, load balancing, firewall and Unified Threat Management.

Analog Devices AD8231 Amplifiers
The AD8231, from Analog Devices, is a zero-drift, programmable-gain instrumentation amplifier (in-amp). Zero-drift in-amps are often used in harsh industrial environments such as power plants to cancel, or reject, large common-mode voltages that would otherwise drown out smaller system-critical signals.

Microchip 25XX320A SPI Serial EEPROMs
Microchip’s 25AA320A and 25LC320A (25XX320A) 32 Kbit SPI serial EEPROMs are capable of speeds up to 10 MHz. The new devices are available in very low-profile MSOP and TSSOP packages, as well as most standard packages. They enable customers to easily upgrade 32 Kbit designs to 10 MHz.

IBASE ET900 COM Express CPU Module
IBASE’s ET900 is a low power COM Express CPU module using the Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express chipset and the latest Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo processors. With an extremely small form factor, the ET900 offers the flexibility and high levels of processing performance needed for industrial automation, test & measurement, medical imaging, digital signage and automotive applications.

Concurrent FX 210/018 Switched Serial Fabric Board
Concurrent Technologies’ FX 210-018 is a VXS packet switched serial fabric board, which operates alongside their range of VMEbus VXS packet switched single board computers. The FX 210/018 is an “unmanaged” embedded 1000Mbps baseband IEEE 802.3 switching platform, conforming to VITA 41.3, providing a low cost, low power, packet switching solution for voice/data communications.

Xilinx ISE WebPACK 9.1i
Xilinx’s Integrated Software Environment (ISE(TM)) WebPACK(TM) 9.1i is the latest version of the company’s free downloadable programmable logic design suite. The new version includes all the features of the 9.1i release of the popular Xilinx ISE Foundation(TM) software with full support for optional embedded, digital signal processing (DSP) and real-time debug design flows. Most notably, ISE WebPACK 9.1i software includes the new Xilinx SmartCompile(TM) technology, which significantly improves run times by up to 6x faster than the previous version, while maintaining exact design preservation of unchanged logic.
