Mobile Workstation

Eurocom's (Ottawa, Canada) latest mobile workstation, the Tornado F7W, features a modular MXM 3.1 slot-based GPU allowing easy reconfiguration of GPU capabilities. The GPUs offered are ISV-certified, workstation-class NVIDIA Quadro P5200, P4200 and P3200 cards, which are suitable for CAD/CAE/CAM software such as Adobe, AutoCAD, CATIA and SOLIDWORKS. Over time, a user can choose to swap out the Quadro-based GPU and reconfigure the system to run a different MXM 3.1-compatible GPU (GTX-based cards, for example).

Temperature Elements for Flight-Critical Equipment

FCI Aerospace’s (San Marcos, CA) AS-TE Temperature Element Series sensors utilize precision resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) to provide superior accuracy, repeatability and long-life. The AS-TE sensors are typically designed with Platinum RTD or MIL-T-7990 Nickel RTD sensors. The Platinum RTDs are available in several Ro (ice point resistance) values and in either two-, three- or four-wire configurations to ensure optimal performance and system compatibility.

Lange Couplers

The construction and port orientation of the Lange Coupler from SemiGen (Londonderry, NH) makes it useful as both a power combiner and splitter for RF and microwave applications. It is a specific type of directional coupler, which allows passive coupling of a defined amount of electromagnetic power. The sweet spot for Lange Couplers has traditionally been UHF to Q-band; the limit becomes frequency. Substrate height and strip width are inversely related to frequency, increasing loss due to the reduced amount of metal available to act as a conductor.
