24/7 Data Acquisition Wildcard
The 24/7 Data Acquisition Wildcard from Mosaic Industries is ideal for applications that require high resolution measurements. It accepts low level signals directly from transducers, amplifies and conditions them, and converts them with 24 bits of resolution with no missing codes. Mounted on any of Mosaic’s single board computers, it provides a high performance analog front end, offering exceptional resolution, stability, and noise rejection.

TNI-Software’s AUTOSAR Builder is an Eclipse-based software development platform that provides a seamless design environment for the creation of AUTOSAR compliant automotive electronics systems and ECUs. The AUTOSAR standard provides the description formats for complete automotive systems including the resources and configuration for individual ECUs. It defines the methodology and tool support needed to bring the various description elements together in order to build tangible systems of ECUs. It also enables both system-wide and process optimisation including the configuration and generation of the AUTOSAR Run-Time Environment (RTE) and the Basic Software (BSW) for each ECU.

Kontron AM4010 AdvancedMC Module
The Kontron AM4010 is the industry’s first Mid-Size Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) designed with Intel(R) multi-core processor technology, generating a proliferation of new design options for compute-intensive applications. The AdvancedMC processor module is available in an array of LV and ULV Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo and Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo processor options that represent substantial processing power and maximum MIPS per Watt for both AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA redundant system designs. The Kontron AM4010 can be used as a main controller, data server, traffic processor or media processor. For AdvancedTCA system designs, the Kontron AM4010 is extremely powerful when combined with four-slot AdvancedTCA AMC carrier blades.
