TI DaVinci SDK for Embedded CE
TI’s Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows Embedded CE is designed for use with the TMS320DM6443 and TMS320DM6446 system-on-chip (SoC) processors based on DaVinci technology. The SDK will empower developers who prefer the Windows Embedded operating system to now easily access TI’s silicon and software for digital video applications. DaVinci technology and the Windows Embedded CE development environment are both popular choices for applications such as set-top boxes, digital media adapters, voice-over-IP (VoIP) phones, navigation systems and portable media players. TI’s offering for Windows Embedded CE offering is optimized for TI’s TMS320DM6443 and TMS320DM6446 SoC processors.

ReqCenter for Embedded Systems
TNI-Software’s ReqCenter is the first open, standards-based platform that addresses the need for peer-to-peer requirements sharing and exchange independently of the different Requirements Management tools being used by the various companies in the embedded systems design chain.

Momentum AXA-110 Advanced Mezzanine Card
Mercury Computer Systems’ Momentum(TM) Series AXA-110 Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) combines a dual-core Intel(R) processor with an FPGA (field-programmable gate array) to create flexible switch fabric connectivity. The AXA-110 is ideally suited for the processing and communications heart of AdvancedTCA(R) or MicroTCA(TM) systems. The Momentum Series AXA-110 is Mercury’s second generation of AMC cards that combine a dual-core Intel(R) processor with the latest Xilinx(R) FPGA. The AXA-110 is the first AMC to incorporate an Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo processor L7400, which at a core speed of 1.5 GHz and a thermal design power of 17 watts, provides leading energy-efficient performance for small form factor embedded platforms.

Altera Automotive Graphics System
The Altera(R) Automotive Graphics System (AAGS) is a scalable solution that enables design engineers to quickly and efficiently design multiple automotive infotainment products based on a single electronic design. Implemented in Altera’s low-cost Cyclone(R) series or high-performance Stratix(R) series FPGAs, the AAGS enables designers to overcome the lengthy and costly design cycles of fixed-function graphic controllers.
