Electronic Specifier takes a look at the top boards/backplanes product stories to have been released in March 2022.

Streaming 4x cameras with small carrier board prototype

Embedded vision components are ever popular and being incorporated into a plethora of applications. What all these applications have in common is the need to pack more functionality into tight spaces.

Often, it is advantageous for these systems make decisions on the edge.

To enable such systems, including the ability to prototype quickly, Teledyne FLIR has introduced the Quartet Embedded Solution for TX2. This customised carrier board enables easy integration of up to 4 x USB3 machine vision cameras at full bandwidth.

Versatile USB-IO board enables control and monitoring

Embedded systems and display solutions provider, Review Display Systems (RDS) have announced the introduction of a, highly versatile USB control and monitoring interface board.
The intelligent USB-IO board features a comprehensive range of I/O (input/output) ports which can be easily controlled and monitored using a single USB serial interface.
The USB-IO board has been designed and developed by RDS for use in embedded systems, IoT applications and stand-alone equipment to enable the control and monitoring of external hardware and systems such as relays, smart sensors, actuators, lighting, and motors.

GaN-based inverter reference design cuts system costs

The EPC9167 GaN-based inverter reference design enhances motor system performance, range, precision, and torque while lowering overall system cost.

The reference design board is a 3-phase BLDC (brushless direct current) motor drive inverter board featuring the EPC2065 eGaN FET rated at 3.6mΩ maximum RDS(on), 80V maximum device voltage. The extremely small size of this inverter allows integration into the motor housing resulting in the low EMI, high density, and low weight.
