Scalability of RTOS enhanced through visualisation profile

A visualisation profile for the next generation of its RTOS, has been introduced by Wind River. The Virtualization Profile integrates a real-time embedded, Type 1 hypervisor into the core of the the VxWorks 7 Core Platform, separating its OS from packages such as the file system or networking stack. This allows individual applications to be updated without requiring a rework of the entire system, increasing the RTOS's scalability and ability to quickly adjust to market changes.

IO-Link reference designs improve industrial efficiency

IO-Link reference designs improve industrial efficiency
Two subsystem reference designs, introduced by Maxim Integrated Products, integrate the benefits of IO-Link into a proximity sensor and a 16-channel digital-input hub. The MAXREFDES27# provides very accurate, low-power optical proximity sensing; while the MAXREFDES36# enhances distributed control with a compact digital-input hub.
