BIOS updates for Kontron ATX motherboards "Designed by Fujitsu"
Kontron, a leading global provider of IoT/Embedded Computing Technology (ECT), now offers a BIOS update to version R1.20.0 for its D3598-B and D3598-G motherboards, both "Designed by Fujitsu". This refresh now also supports the latest Intel processors. The use of the latest CPUs increases the performance of the motherboards and extends their lifetime. In addition, more performance is offered at a lower price.
High performance Mini-ITX motherboard powered by AMD Ryzen
IBASE Technology has rolled out its MBD301 Mini-ITX motherboard based on the AMD X470 chipset. Supporting AMD Ryzen desktop processors for AM4 Socket and up to 64GB of DDR4-2400 memory, MBD301 provides superior processing and graphic performance.
Affordable and easy-to-use eight-bit MCUs
STMicroelectronics is making design starts using eight-bit STM8 microcontrollers (MCUs) faster, more affordable, and more accessible for creative minds of all types by introducing new development boards in the easy-to-use Nucleo-32 form factor.
Motherboards based on the latest Intel platforms
Kontron has introduced motherboards ‘Designed by Fujitsu’ including the form factors (Thin) Mini-ITX, µATX, Mini-STX, and ATX based on the latest Intel platforms. As a result of the acquisition of Fujitsu's products, production facilities and engineering in Augsburg, Germany, Kontron has expanded its embedded motherboard product portfolio.
Development kit aids F-RAM memory evaluation
An easy-to-use and inexpensive development kit that will enable engineers to evaluate the high-performance Excelon Ultra QSPI F-RAM memory technology from Cypress Semiconductor is available at RS Components. There are demanding requirements for robust memory performance in terms of cycling endurance and data retention for industrial systems operating in harsh environments.
Evaluation board demonstrates next performance leap in GaN
GaN Systems and ON Semiconductor have announced the availability of a high speed, half bridge GaN daughter board using GaN Systems’ 650V, 30A GaN E-HEMTs and ON Semiconductor’s NCP51820 high speed gate driver evaluation board. This evaluation board is developed for existing and new PCB designs and allows designers to easily evaluate GaN in existing half bridge or full bridge power supplies.
Software radio board with backplane optical added to FPGAs
Pentek has introduced the newest member of the Jade family of high-performance 3U VPX boards. The Model 54821 is based on the Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA and features three 200 MHz 16-bit A/Ds with three programmable multiband digital downconverters (DDCs) and one digital upconverter (DUC) with two 800 MHz 16-bit D/As.
Adding high-performing motor drivers to MikroElektronika Fusion boards
STMicroelectronics has collaborated with MikroElektronika, an authorised ST Partner, to create four Click boards that extend the advantages of STSPIN motor drivers beyond STM32-based designs to users of MikroElektronika prototyping boards, as well as other systems containing a mikroBUS socket.
Better visibility: Robotic arm supports endoscopic surgeries
With its robotic arm Soloassist II for surgeons in hospitals, the German company AKTORmed from Regensburg makes it easier for surgeons to work with endoscopes. About 15 years ago, the transition from manual to robot-supported guidance of the surgical camera during minimally invasive procedures meant a significant improvement for the surgeon.
Thin mini-ITX motherboard targets computing-intensive markets
Axiomtek has announced the MANO521, a thin mini-ITX motherboard powered by the LGA1151 socket 8th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 (code name: Coffee Lake) with Intel H310 chipset or optional Intel Q370 chipset. This Intel Coffee Lake-based motherboard provides rapid video acceleration advantage, multiple expansion interfaces and triple-view capability.
