TeamF1 AuthAgent Kerberos 2.1
TeamF1 AuthAgent Kerberos 2.1 is the latest update to the company’s standards-based implementation of the Kerberos(TM) V Protocol for authentication of network clients and services in embedded devices. AuthAgent Kerberos is a solution for avoiding the dangers of transmitting plain-text authentication information by providing secure authentication in networked environments. AuthAgent Kerberos can be used as a standalone authentication agent and is also pre-integrated with TeamF1′s network security protocol implementations including SSH and IPsec/IKE.

STMicroelectronics ST7LITE49M 8-bit Flash Microcontroller
STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) ST7LITE49M 8-bit Flash microcontroller is the latest member of the low-cost ST7Lite family. ST7Lite is designed for simpler products such as security and lighting systems, power management, small appliances, sensors and motor control. The ST7LITE49M series, available in an LQFP32 package for mass production and in SDIP32 for prototyping, offer up to 4-KBytesand 24 high-sink-current I/O lines. In practice, many embedded designs for simple and low-cost applications require a small firmware size, coupled with high flexibility in terms of bidirectional I/O lines; the new ST7LITE49M family is intended to satisfy these requirements, offering cost effective devices, in both Flash and pre-programmed versions, with 128 Bytes of true EEPROM Memory on board.

National Instruments PXI-4498, PXI-4496 Data Acquisition Modules
The National Instruments (Nasdaq:NATI) PXI-4498 and PXI-4496 high-accuracy data acquisition modules are designed for sound and vibration applications. The new modules enable engineers and product designers to easily build complex, synchronized systems for high-channel-count applications. The new DSA modules work with all existing PXI modules and integrate with a variety of software including the National Instruments LabVIEW graphical development environment and LabVIEW SignalExpress, as well as the NI Sound and Vibration Measurement Suite and Sound and Vibration Assistant. The modules come with NI DAQmx driver software for easy configuration.
