Tanner to demonstrate multi-threaded analogue simulation with an integrated circuit and MEMS design suite running under Microsoft Vista at DATE
Tanner EDA will unveil a multi-threaded version of its SPICE analogue simulator T-Spice at DATE 2007. Its suite of analogue and mixed-signal integrated circuit and MEMS design tools is designed to run under Microsoft’s new Vista operating system which spans schematic capture (S-Edit), simulation (T-Spice), layout (L-Edit) and foundry compatible design verification (HiPer Verify). The new analogue simulator will not only offer higher performan...

Continuing to drive the adoption of DSP technology in the next generation of digital video applications, Texas Instruments has released the TMS320DM6437 Digital Video Development Platform (DVDP) for its DM643x digital media processors announced last quarter. The DM6437 DVDP brings the complete DaVinciT technology development environment to these processors by bundling a full TMS320DM6437 evaluation module (EVM) with a complete suite of DaVinci de...
Low power PC/104+ embedded motherboard from Anders has integrated CAN
The SBX-iGLX embedded computing platform from Anders Electronics combines a PC/104+ modular architecture with CAN bus connectivity, Ethernet connections, PCMCIA and CardBus interfaces to deliver flexible expansion options for industrial applications. Using the new platform, developers can create cost-effective and compact embedded computer configurations with feature sets tailored precisely to their needs.
ARM7-based Motor Control Development Kit from STMicroelectronics
STMicroelectronics has announced a new motor control development kit, built around the recently-announced 32-bit STR750 microcontroller, which enables the rapid development of high-performance vector-control applications, using both Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM) and 3-phase AC Induction Motors, for cost-sensitive appliance, industrial and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) markets.
Estimator Tool Guides Designers to Energy-Efficient SOC Architectures
To address the growing need to pro-actively reduce power consumption in embedded systems, Tensilica has announced the Xenergy estimator, an energy estimator for both Xtensa configurable processor and Diamond Standard processor users. By using the Xenergy tool to optimize for energy early in the SOC (System On Chip) design cycle, designers can cut processor and local memory energy requirements by up to half by making intelligent design trade-off...
Omniflex Omni16 Alarm Annunciator continues to lead the way
In an age when a generation of technology is probably less than 12 months it is barely conceivable that the Omni16 Alarm Annunciator has remained at the forefront of its market niche, flashing its way into control rooms of industry around the world for more than 25 years. For the benefit of non omni16 users, the annunciator is packed full of user selectable features that enable practically any alarm annunciation function to be accomplished.
