A/D Boards

United Electronic Industries (UEI) (Walpole, MA) has announced the release of four new analog input boards. All four of the boards offer 8 analog input channels, 24-bit A/D resolution and 120 kilosample/second maximum sampling rates. All four boards also offer complete, 350 Vrms channel-to-channel and channel- to-chassis isolation. The DNR versions are for use with the company’s RACKtangle® chassis, while the DNA versions are designed for installation into the PowerDNA Cube chassis. The DNx-AI-218 offers a ±10 VDC input range suitable for most general purpose DAQ measurements while the DNx- AI-228-300’s ±300 VDC input range makes it a good solution for a host of high voltage applications including battery testing, power plant monitoring, aircraft power monitoring and more.

PCIe RAID Controller Cards

StarTech.com (Lockbourne, OH) has released two new PCI Express RAID Controller Cards (SKUs: PEXSAT34RH, PEXSAT34SFF). The new PCIe RAID cards feature Marvell™ HyperDuo SSD Auto-Tiering Technology, an embedded technology for 6Gbps SATA controllers that allows users to combine SATA SSD and HDD drives into a single volume (up to 3 SSD + 1 HDD), while built-in HyperDuo technology discreetly identifies and moves frequently accessed files to the faster SSD drive(s). While providing the improved speed and data throughput (up to 80% SSD performance), the cards still enable all data to be safely stored on a larger capacity HDD. The HyperDuo feature can be configured either at the boot level (no software required) or at the OS level through an intuitive administration GUI console in Windows.

Microcontrollers

LAPIS Semiconductor (San Jose, CA), a ROHM Group Company, recently introduced the ML610Q100 series of low-cost, low-power microcontrollers. The Mini LP Micros’ peripherals around the processing core and non-volatile memory and RAM include: GPIO, PWMs, counter/timer blocks, ADCs and comparators. The devices exhibit very low power consumption in both sleep (1uA typical) and operating modes (3.7mA typical), while executing one instruction per clock cycle at up to 8 MHz clock rates. The microcontrollers are unique in having their timing reference circuit completely integrated within the devices, meaning no external crystal or any other component is required. Some of the devices in the Mini LP Micro series have internal writable Flash RAM, which eliminates the need for external EEPROM for data storage. Their wide supply voltage range (2.7V dc to 5.5Vdc) and temperature range (-40°C to 85°C) allow the Mini LP Micros to be used in battery-powered and energy-harvesting applications located in harsh environments.

Avionics Compliance Management Tools

LDRA (Merseyside, UK) has released the LDRA Compliance Management System (LCMS) to help companies develop the infrastructure to become DO-178B/C, DO- 278A, and DO-254 compliant. LDRA Certification Services (LCS) experts, fully accredited across all aviation disciplines, walk customers through the fully compliant plans, standards and other lifecycle documents, process checklists, and problem reports to help customers manage certification planning, development, verification, and regulatory activities. To provide additional flexibility and security for customers, LDRA has adapted and licensed LCMS to work in cloud-based or locally hosted environments. Both options include a two-day quick start training and LCS Level A DER ongoing support to ensure full compliance to the standards.

Multi-Phase Power Analyzer

Tektronix, Inc. (Beaverton, OR) recently announced its new precision multi- phase power analyzer. Featuring the industry’s first Spiral Shunt™ design (patent application submitted), the Tektronix PA4000 power analyzer gives power electronics engineers stable, precise current measurements even on highly distorted power waveforms common in many applications. The PA4000 uses two Spiral Shunts on each channel – one for current measurements up to 1 A, for precise low-current measurements, and one for current measurements up to 30A, for higher-current measurements. This state-of-the-art shunt design is then combined with unique high-speed digital signal processing algorithms, allowing the PA4000 to track power cycles accurately, even in the presence of transients and noise.
