Rabbit Wireless Control Application Kit
Rabbit Semiconductor’s Wireless Control Application Kit provides a development reference to interface a low-cost, license-free 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz wireless data modules from Maxstream(R) to a Rabbit-based embedded system. The system illustrates the versatility and simplicity of adding wireless connectivity to embedded applications such as remote monitoring, proximity sensor readings, wireless I/O control, and wireless data transmission.

Kontron CP601264 CompactPCI Processor Board
The Kontron CP601264 CompactPCI processor board features the Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processor. The PICMG 2.16-compatible Kontron CP601264 features an 4 MB L2 cache, a much improved internal architecture, and 64-bit Intel(R) technology for increased performance over the Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo option. Designed for bandwidth-intensive applications, the Kontron CP601264 provides hot swap and IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) support, and meets the highest standards for the management of high-availability applications. This makes this board attractive to multiple markets, including, highly sensitive, security-relevant telecom and datacom applications, and image-processing systems in medical technology (tomography).

DSM Computer 96M1542F NanoServer
DSM Computer’s 96M1542F NanoServer is available either as a simple controller unit or as a measured value and communications server. The embedded system, implemented for tough industrial environments, has a C7 VIA processor C7, which functions without a fan at a maximum clock frequency of 1.0 GHz. The main memory can be extended with 533 MHz DDR2 RAM up to a capacity of 1 GB.

Sigrity OptimizePI Power Delivery System
Sigrity’s OptimizePI is a next-generation Power Delivery System (PDS) solution that is the first to provide minimum-cost decoupling capacitor (decap) selection and placement to achieve desired PDS performance. OptimizePI is based on Sigrity’s analysis and verification capabilities for the entire PCB and IC package structure. It lets designers assess PDS performance against design specifications, make interactive “what if” decap placement and selection investigations, minimize decap cost for specified PDS performance, and judge performance vs. lowest-cost tradeoffs. The first-ever solution to include these capabilities, OptimizePI helps to eliminate unnecessary costs associated with the common PDS practice of over-design.

IntellaSys OnSpec xSil269 Memory Controller Chip
IntellaSys’ OnSpec(TM) xSil269 memory controller chip is the industry’s first USB 2.0 NAND Flash controller with 128-bit, hardware-encrypted security. Fully compliant with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), the xSil269′s hardware-embedded encryption/decryption function combines with two-level software authentication of passwords to prevent unauthorized access of memory content.
