Diagnostic kit aids installation of encoder systems

Diagnostic kit aids installation of encoder systems
Renishaw's TONiC linear and rotary encoder systems feature integral set-up LEDs that are usually sufficient for installation purposes, giving a visual indication of the signal level and calibration status. Those customers with the most challenging set-up requirements are now supported by an optional PC software package for use in conjunction with a diagnostic hardware kit.

NI Week: System design software speeds code writing

NI Week: System design software speeds code writing
Faster development time and more debugging tools feature in the LabVIEW 2015 system design software announced by National Instruments at its annual NIWeek exhibition and conference in Austin, Texas. The aim, as ever, is to help standardise the way LabVIEW users interact with almost any hardware through the reuse of the same code and engineering processes across systems, saving time and money as technology advances, requirements evolve, and time-to-market pressure increases.

Chipset enables fast charge protocol for mobile devices

Dialog Semiconductor has announced that Huawei’s new Honor 7 smartphones use its iW630+iW1780+iW671 Rapid Charge adapter chipset to enable Huawei’s Fast Charger Protocol (FCP). FCP is a proprietary protocol from Huawei, designed to charge smartphones and other mobile devices significantly faster than conventional USB charging technology. Dialog’s iW630+iW1780+iW671 chipset provides very high efficiency and high power density needed for small form-factor fast-charging smartphones and mobile device power adapters.

The industry's first USB 3.1 interoperability demonstration

Synopsys has announced the successful interoperability demonstration of Synopsys' DesignWare USB 3.1 device controller IP with ASMedia's USB-IF certified USB 3.1 host controller IC. Proven interoperability between the two companies' products demonstrates that the DesignWare USB 3.1 IP works as defined by the USB 3.1 specification and reduces design risk of integrating the USB 3.1 IP into applications requiring 10Gb/s data transfers.
