Polymer Membrane

To comply with spilled materials regulations, Durabak-M26, a single-component, slip-resistant chemical- and petroleum-resistant product from ADI Technologies (McLean, VA), seals porous concrete, thereby enabling the proper cleanup in the event of a spill that may potentially leak to the soil and cause damage to the environment. The polyurethane system bonds to the wall area to provide a seamless, leak-free, and repairable membrane.

Avionics Cables and Connectors

TE Connectivity (TE) (Berwyn, PA) has developed new cable and connector offerings to support Ethernet data rates. The products handle IEEE 1394, USB, and a range of speeds from 1 GbE through 10 GbE. The TE connectors, which support UAVs, helicopters, missiles, and soldier systems, will include high-speed, small-form-factor circular and rectangular connectors in sizes as small as nanominiature. Termination methods involve mechanical crimp, solder, and high-retention- force removable clamps.

PCI Filter and Amplifier Module

Alligator Technologies (Costa Mesa, CA) has introduced the USBPGF-S1™, a USB controlled single channel programmable signal conditioning instrumentation amplifier and low pass filter. It can configure itself from power-up with changeable but non-volatile configuration and operates independently in both “Turn-Key” and host-computer-controlled scenarios. It is compatible with 12, 16, or 24-bit A/D devices, and allows the user to mix and match filter characteristics and independently select and program each module’s coupling (AC or DC), corner frequency, and gain steps up to x1000 in either single-ended or differential measurements.

Processing Platform

The Zynq™-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) devices from Xilinx (San Jose, CA) integrate an ARM® dual-core Cortex®-A9 MPCore™ processing system with NEON and Double Precision Floating Point engine. Each Zynq-7000 EPP includes L1 and L2 caches, memory controllers, and commonly used peripherals. The processing system boots at power-up and can run a variety of operating systems independent of the programmable logic. The processing system then configures the programmable logic on an as-needed basis.
