WIN Enterprises PL-01039 Network Security Platform
WIN Enterprises PL-01039 is a 1U rack-mount high-performance platform that is easily modifiable to support a range of security applications, including IDS/IPS, firewall, VPN gateway, Unified Threat Management (UTM), antispam, and antivirus. The device’s motherboard, the MB-09042, is also available for OEM purchase. These products support single Intel(R) Dual Core(TM) Xeon(R) LV/ULV processors with 667MHz FSB and offer a broad selection of connector cards to meet an OEM’s specific I/O requirements.

LitePoint IQmax MIMO, IQwave for WiMAX
LitePoint’s IQmax MIMO system targets WiMAX devices with Wave 2 functionality. The mobility adjuncts to the current WiMAX standard (IEEE standard 802.16e-2005) require capabilities beyond those of earlier versions, and LitePoint’s new system provides those capabilities. The current WiMAX mobile radio interface uses scalable orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (SOFDMA) and supports multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications technology. The result is greater coverage, lower power consumption, and more efficient spectrum and bandwidth utilization.

IBASE Technology’s (TASDAQ: 8050) IB940 full-size CPU card is designed for industrial computing environment. The board features front size bus of 533/800/1066MHz, PCI Express x16 graphics interface as well as PCI x1 I/O ports. The IB940 delivers 64-bit computing with faster access to peripheral I/O devices. The IB940 utilizes the latest Intel(R) Q965 chipset to support Intel’s Core(TM)2 Duo processors.

Opal-RT TestDrive OP6000 Engine ECU Testing System
Opal-RT Technologies Inc. recently rolled out their latest version of TestDrive(TM) OP6000 Engine ECU Testing System. TestDrive OP6000 is a powerful system for improving Electronic Control Unit (ECU) quality throughout the entire production process with real-time open- or closed-loop simulation. It enables test and control engineers to exercise ECU design in a complete virtual environment, including extreme conditions, by replicating all the loading and sensory feedback of an actual vehicle under realistic conditions.

TI ADS5474 14-bit Analog-to-Digital Converter
The ADS5474, by Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NYSE: TXN), is the industry’s fastest monolithic 14-bit analog-to-digital converter (ADC) at 400 mega samples per second (MSPS). The new ADC offers 11.1 effective number of bits (ENOB) at this speed, enabling high-bandwidth applications such as test and measurement instrumentation, software-defined radio, radar systems and communication instrumentation that were previously confined to lesser resolution ADCs.

Freescale Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Freescale Semiconductor offers a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that contains a capacitive pressure sensor for ultra-low power consumption and precise sensing. Freescale’s MPXY8300 system-in-package device provides a highly integrated, cost-effective solution that combines an advanced pressure sensor with an 8-bit microcontroller (MCU), 2-axis accelerometer, and radio frequency (RF).

EnOcean STM 110 Wireless Sensor Module
The EnOcean STM 110 module is a wireless, battery-free sensor transmitter that integrates all sensor functions into a single module. The module targets OEMs developing products for commercial building monitoring and control, industrial processes, lighting control, automated metering infrastructures, and home automation. The EnOcean STM (Sensor Transmitter Module) 110 harvests and stores solar energy, converts DC to DC efficiently, measures incoming data with ultra low power electronics and transmits via radio signals.
