Eseye - AnyNet SMARTconnect

AnyNet SMARTconnect is a suite of software tools that establishes and maintains an IoT device’s connection to a cellular network and simplifies securely connecting the device to cloud services. 

It is a portable software module that provides on device intelligence allowing it to select, manage and optimise connectivity. It enables the movement of connectivity intelligence from the SIM to a more powerful and flexible software library. 

It is also extremely flexible with multiple deployment options at modem, micro-controller or gateway level. 

Eseye is the first connectivity provider to market with a module-agnostic connectivity software solution for IoT devices. It codifies Eseye’s decades of connectivity expertise into powerful and flexible device software that partners and customers can easily integrate into their IoT or connected device.

Onsemi - NCS32100

The NCS32100 from onsemi is a new dual inductive rotary sensor IC that can provide the accuracy generally associated with mid to high end optical encoders. 

This product is an innovative new product that raises the bar for rotary position sensors in industrial applications. The combination of accuracy, speed, integration, ease of use, robustness, insensitivity to almost all forms for contamination or interference make this a very attractive solution for customers. Not only is this solution better, but it is cost effective also. 

The NCS32100 will change the game because it allows for higher accuracies then what was previously possible with inductive encoders. Another game changing feature is the self-calibration algorithm in the NCS32100.

Nordic Semiconductor - nRF5340 Audio Development kit

The nRF5340 Audio Development Kit is a Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) Audio evaluation board designed for prototyping audio devices. It features the nRF5340 multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC) with additional audio hardware and comes with a software package. 

The nRF5340 Audio DK is the first complete LE Audio development kit that is affordable and publicly available for anyone. Nordic Semiconductor provides open access to software and technical support to all developers even hobbyists. 

Bluetooth LE Audio is a game-changer. With the power consumption cut down at least by half and improved audio quality we will see smaller and longer-lasting devices with an amazing audio experience.

Before nRF5340 Audio DK was launched, there were very few ready-made Bluetooth LE Audio prototyping platforms, and none was complete and globally accessible. 

Swissbit - N4200 Data Centre SSD

Swissbit's Data Centre SSD enables server engineers to achieve reliable, high storage capacity that delivers consistently high performance and low latency.

Most off-the-shelf SSDs, even special Data Centre versions, degrade both in performance and in endurance due to non-optimised Flash management. The N4200 is able to measure its respective workload. 

Thanks to this unique feature, the workload profile can be analysed and the firmware configured accordingly, tailored to a specific workload profile, e.g. for web, streaming, application and cache servers. 

The Swissbit N4200 can be optimised to a specific customer application environment, offering best in class sustained performance over a prolonged period of time, higher endurance and lowest service cost compared to SSD solution available from the mainstream market. 

Rohde & Schwarz - R&S MXO 4 Oscilloscope

The 4-channel oscilloscopes come with bandwidths of 200 MHz, 350 MHz, 500 MHz, 1 GHz, and 1.5 GHz. at a starting price of 7,600 Euros and many unparalleled functions which let the R&S MXO 4 excel in both performance and value.

The R&S MXO 4 oscilloscopes are equipped with a brilliant 13.3” full-HD capacitive touchscreen and deliver a number of industry firsts: They feature the world’s fastest real-time update rate of over 4.5 million acquisitions per second, enabled by a unique 200Gbps processing ASIC.

The R&S MXO 4 offers the world’s fastest update rate of 4.5 M acquisitions per second. It lets development teams see and isolate infrequent events quickly and get a better understanding of physical layer signals and test faster. 

Codasip - SecuRISC5

The SecuRISC5 ecosystem was initiated by Codasip to build on the work of the RISC-V International Working Groups to implement new standards as they are ratified and to offer solutions, particularly to custom requirements with domain-specific processing requirements.

Codasip provides the industry’s first and only RISC-V security framework to enable Safe & Secure Custom Compute: to accelerate integration and enable design for differentiation. 

Codasip will deliver highly verified reference platforms for safe and secure applications. Codasip plans to launch the first in a series of reference platforms in Q3 2023, but dual-core lockstep is available today, and secure boot and secure debug is soon to be provided. Prototyping with lead customers started in early 2023.
