Concurrent Technologies’ VP 417/03x SBC is a single-slot VME dual-core processor, dual PMC, single board computer. The VP 417/03x uses mobile dual core processors from the Intel(R) embedded roadmap, the 1.5 GHz or the 2.16 GHz Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processor. The VP 417/03x supports many operating systems, including Linux(R), Windows® XP Embedded, Windows(R) XP, Windows(R) 2000, Solaris(TM), LynxOS(R), QNX(R) and VxWorks(R).

GE Fanuc Embedded Systems SBC310 3U VPX Single Board Computer
GE Fanuc Embedded Systems’ SBC310 3U VPX single board computer is the first 3U VPX SBC to feature Freescale’s dual core PowerPC 8641D and to provide support for a PMC/XMC site. The SBC310 offers up to 1 GByte of SDRAM and is optionally available in any of five ruggedization levels, making it suitable for deployment in the harshest environments.

Texas Instruments OPA369 Zero-Crossover Op Amp
Texas Instruments Incorporated’s (TI) (NYSE: TXN) OPA369 is the industry’s lowest power zero-crossover operational amplifier (op amp). The OPA369 features a unique single-input-stage architecture and achieves rail-to-rail performance without input crossover to solve the common design problem of input offset distortion due to the change in common mode voltage that is very prominent in low-voltage, rail-to-rail applications. Combined with 1uA quiescent current, SC70 package and operation down to 1.8V, the OPA369 simplifies high-performance designs in battery-powered, portable products.

ADLINK PCI-8174 Stepper and Servo Motion Control Card
ADLINK’s PCI-8174 stepper and servo motion control card offers an on-board DSP with motion ASIC for simplified implementation of time-critical motion sequences. The product is in use for applications such as semiconductor front and back end equipment, TFT/LCD manufacturing equipment, electronic assembly and testing equipment, automatic optical inspection equipment, flight or vehicle simulator in military and video game, dispenser machinery, and cutting or carving machinery.

Semtech SX1211 UHF RF Transceiver
Semtech’s (Nasdaq:SMTC) SX1211 is a UHF radio frequency (RF) transceiver with the industry’s lowest receiver (RX) current consumption (<3mA), significantly increasing battery life in wireless sensor network applications. The SX1211 is optimized for asynchronous sensor network designs in the unlicensed industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) frequency bands (868-870 MHz and 902-928 MHz) where low RX power consumption is critical to battery life as the receiver is constantly waking up to sniff for signals.

ITOX G7B630-NRM-G Motherboard
ITOX’s G7B630-NRM-G motherboard is a ATX form factor board with support for Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad processors. The high-performance board is designed for embedded applications requiring a stable revision-controlled platform. The G7B630-NRM-G features the Intel(R) Q965 Express chipset with ICH8DO Southbridge. The LGA775 socket supports a wide range of Intel Embedded Architecture processors, including the Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad processor, Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo processor and Intel(R) Celeron(R) D processor.
