MathStar Field Programmable Object Array Webcast
MathStar has a webcast about its 1 GHz Field Programmable Object Array (FPOA), which is a reprogrammable device offering up to four times the performance of FPGAs. The webinar, which is available on-demand, will show the advantages of FPOAs in image processing applications such as flat field error correction, edge detection, two dimensional filters and two dimensional transforms. Examples of each will be discussed including performance benchmarks and resource requirements.

GAO 2812EVM-I Evaluation Board
GAO’s 2812EVM-I Evaluation Board is specially designed for control system developers to evaluate the performance of applications running on a TMS320F2812 DSP. In addition, it enables users to quickly evaluate if design requirements can be met and greatly speeds up the development process. This adaptable EVM board allows the user modify it through the addition of customized algorithms.

Atmel AT90USB82/162 AVR USB Microcontrollers
Based on the 8-bit AVR core, the Atmel (Nasdaq: ATML) AT90USB82 and AT90USB162 feature a full-speed USB (12 Mbits/s) controller and have 8- and 16-Kbyte of Flash memory, respectively allowing in-system programming directly through their USB interface. On-chip EEPROM of 512 bytes allows for parameters settings without interfering with the application. The AVR microcontrollers are ideal for high-volume USB applications ranging from high-performance Human Interface Devices (HID) to wireless adaptors.

Lattice DDR2 SDRAM Controller IP Core
Lattice’s (NASDAQ: LSCC) 533 Mbps DDR2 SDRAM IP core is optimized for the LatticeECP2(TM) and LatticeECP2M(TM) low-cost FPGA families, as well as its high-end LatticeSC(TM) Extreme Performance(TM) FPGA family.

AXIOMTEK GOT-3840TL Touch Panel Computer
AXIOMTEK’s GOT-3840TL is a fanless touch panel computers for HMI applications. The new 8.4″ fanless touch panel computer is equipped with a 8.4″ SVGA TFT LCD display and supports an ultra low power consumption AMD LX800 500MHz processor. The HMI platform supports anti-vibration up to 1.3G in operation mode and features a NEMA4/IP65 compliant front bezel. The GOT-3840TL is designed for limited space applications, such as transportation, control platforms on ships, parking field surveillance, and building automation.

Intel Develops Solid State Nand Flash Drive
Intel’s (NASDAQ:INTC) Z-U130 Value Solid-State Drive is based on NAND flash memory with industry standard USB interfaces. The Intel Z-U130 Value Solid State Drive offers cost-effective, high-performance storage for a wide variety of computing and embedded platforms. With advantages over hard disk drive (HDD) or removable universal serial bus (USB) storage devices, Intel’s Solid State Drives deliver faster boot times, embedded code storage, rapid data access and low-power storage alternatives for value PCs, routers, servers, gaming and industrial applications.

Analog Devices ADSP-BF52x Blackfin Processors
The ADSP-BF52x processors offer system designers a breadth of choice with a high-performance/low-power series (ADSP-BF527/BF525/BF522) operating at 600MHz, and an ultra-low-power series running at up to 400MHz. All incorporate Blackfin Lockbox Secure Technology(TM) to provide capabilities for implementing the next generation of security — for uses that range from safeguarding intellectual property to protected e-commerce and social networking — on digital media devices.
