Library implements touch pads with surface gestures

Library implements touch pads with surface gestures
Microchip Technology Inc. has announced a 2D Touch Surface library that enables designers to implement touch pads using the company’s 8-bit PIC and AVR microcontrollers (MCUs) and 32-bit SAM MCUs. Available free of charge with the purchase of any compatible MCU, the library provides a simplified, low-cost solution for embedded applications. Suitable for implementing small touch pads and screens, the 2D Touch Surface library eliminates costs by running on a device’s existing MCU.

Extend your ETX-based system’s life cycle

Extend your ETX-based system’s life cycle
ADLINK Technology, Inc. has demonstrated with the ETX-BT module its support to customers who have designs based on the ETX computer-on-module form factor. ETX is one of the earliest computer-on-module form factors. With the recent discontinuation of the Intel Atom processor N270, many customers are searching for an ETX module replacement to keep their systems up and running.

Fanless embedded computers come with flexible I/O configuration

Fanless embedded computers come with flexible I/O configuration
ADLINK Technology has launched the MXE-1500 Series of fanless embedded computers. The successor to ADLINK's MXE-1300 Series, the MXE 1500 offers I/O interfaces, and more flexible I/O configurations in the same compact enclosure. Intel Celeron(Braswell) processors, Intel’s last generation of CPU to support Windows 7, power the MXE-1500 to a 90% increase in image processing capabilities over the previous generation, and support three independent displays.

Multiphase PMICs have high efficiency and small footprint

Multiphase PMICs have high efficiency and small footprint
Renesas Electronics has announced three programmable power management ICs (PMICs) that offer the highest power efficiency and smallest footprint for application processors in smartphones and tablets: the ISL91302B, ISL91301A, and ISL91301B PMICs. The PMICs also deliver power to artificial intelligence (AI) processors, FPGAs, and industrial microprocessors (MPUs), and they are suitable for powering the supply rails in solid-state drives (SSDs), optical transceivers, and a wide range of consumer, industrial and networking devices.

Microprocessor plays key role in HMI applications

Microprocessor plays key role in HMI applications
The RZ/G1C microprocessor, available from Rutronik UK, is Renesas' latest addition to its RZ/G-series. It is suitable for applications ranging from entry-level solutions to high-complexity embedded systems. Thanks to its support for a 3D graphics engine and a Full HD (FHD) video decoder, it allows fast development of powerful HMI and visual applications. The RZ/G1C, which is based on the 1.0 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU, offers performance and balance for networked HMI systems.

NIST chip predicts the quantum sensors of the future

NIST chip predicts the quantum sensors of the future
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have created a chip on which laser light interacts with a tiny cloud of atoms to serve as a miniature toolkit for measuring quantities such as length with quantum precision. The design could be mass-produced with existing technology. As described in Optica, NIST's prototype chip was used to generate infrared light at a wavelength of 780nm, to be used as a length reference for calibrating other instruments.
