Varisys VMS1 PMC Module
The VMS1 is an IEEE P1386.1 compliant PMC module that allows one or two standard CompactFlash memory cards to be used to build a compact and robust mass storage solution for embedded systems. Dual CompactFlash card support on the VMS1 allows software RAID to provide either striping for high capacity and performance (level 0) or mirroring for enhanced reliability (level 1). VMS1 ruggedization options are available to support industrial, airborne and military applications, including industrial temperature operation, conduction cooling and conformal coating.

Agilent Medalist i3070 In-Circuit PCB Test System
The Medalist i3070 in-circuit test system, by Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A), is a test system for printed circuit board assembly. Advanced algorithms provide analog test throughput increase by up to 50% compared with legacy Agilent Medalist 3070 systems. Simple graphical user interfaces are designed to maximize ease-of-use for operators in the fast-paced high-volume manufacturing environment.

MobiForms is a Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool for developing Java based mobile applications for wireless PDAs running Tablet PC, Pocket PC, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, EPOC, Symbian, or Palm. With MobiForms you do not need to know a single line of Java. MobiForms is an intuitive graphical drag and drop development environment.

Flashstream Flash Vector Programming System
Flashstream Flash Vector Programming System, by BPM, offers the fastest flash programming of NAND and NOR flash memory at speeds as low as 2.5% over theoretical programming minimum. This industry leading speed is due to the creation of a proprietary co-processor technology developed by BPM called Vector Engine. This technology uses a proprietary co-processor design to hardware accelerate flash memory waveforms during the programming cycle. Faster speeds are achieved through synchronous operations that eliminate the dead times when the DUT waits on the programmer. The result is programming near the theoretical limits of the silicon design — the faster the device, the faster the device is programmed.

Moxa ioLogik Active Ethernet I/O Server
Moxa’s Active Ethernet I/O products give system integrators a new option that relies on conditionally triggered I/O status notification with customizable output messages and simultaneous local output control. Rather than simply waiting for a request for information, the Ethernet I/O server intelligently transmits data over the network only when certain customizable I/O conditions are met. Network and host resources are not expended by the continual polling of the server when I/O conditions remain within the customizable threshold. This makes network communication between the host computer and Ethernet I/O server concise and efficient, and data transmission is 20 times faster than with traditional SCADA systems (50 ms compared to 1 sec).
