  • September 19, 2011 -- Cross Match issues order for Eurotech embedded modules to produce handheld biometric identity device
    COLUMBIA, Md., 19 Sept. 2011. Engineers at Cross Match Technologies Inc. in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., needed an embedded computing module with which to ramp up production of a handheld device for homeland security and defense. They found their solution from Eurotech, a supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems. Cross Match officials issued a $1.5 million purchase order for the Eurotech Catalyst TC module, based on the Intel Atom processor E6xx series. Eurotech will deliver the Catalyst TC modules over the next 12 months.
  • September 22, 2011 -- Dot Hill, Phoenix International join hands to provide rugged data storage for Joint STARS and AWACS
    LONGMONT, Colo., 22 Sept. 2011. Data storage specialist Dot Hill Systems Corp. in Longmont, Colo., is joining hands with Phoenix International Systems in Orange, Calif., to develop and build a ruggedized data storage system for two major U.S. airborne military surveillance systems. Dot Hill and Phoenix International have signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement to integrate Dot Hill's 3000 series redundant array of independent disks (RAID) controller with Phoenix International rugged data storage technology for deployment on the Northrop Grumman Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint-STARS) aircraft, as well as the Boeing Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) surveillance aircraft.
  • September 23, 2011 -- PMC cards based on Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA introduced by Acromag for signal processing applications
    WIXOM, Mich., 23 Sept. 2011. Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the PMC-SLX mezzanine boards based on the Xilinx Spartan-6 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for advanced signal processing applications. These boards, based on the PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) form factor, are for embedded computing systems developers with tightening budget and time constraints, Acromag officials say. Typical uses include hardware simulation, in-circuit diagnostics, communications, signal intelligence, and image processing. Spartan-6 FPGAs have integrated logic, digital signal processor (DSP), and memory resources. Acromag adds a high-throughput PCI-eXtended (PCI-X) interface, large memory banks, and access to field I/O signals. Extra memory and extended-temperature options available.
  • September 28, 2011 -- Argon ST engineers to adopt GE rugged single-board computers for shipboard signals intelligence application
    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., 28 Sept. 2011. Officials at Argon ST of Fairfax, Va., needed single-board computers for the company’s Ships Signal Exploitation Equipment (SSEE) system. They found their solution at GE Intelligent Platforms in Charlottesville, Va. GE Intelligent Platforms gained an initial order, valued at more than $1 million, for specially modified VR12 rugged 6U VME platform single-board computers featuring the Intel Core i7 processor. The company anticipates additional orders, totaling $5 million, in the coming years as the VR12 infuses the signals intelligence (SIGINT) subsystem with critical data-acquisition capabilities.
  • September 28, 2011 -- DO-178B/C
    BOSTON, 28 Sept. 2011. Two major software design and development tools companies are joining forces to provide an integrated environment that offers independent verification and traceability of software artifacts involving requirements, model elements, or tests through the software to help systems designers meet the requirements of software standards such as DO-178B/C, IEC 62304, ISO 26262, IEC 61508. LDRA Ltd. headquartered in Monks Ferry, England, with U.S. operations in San Bruno, Calif., is teaming with The MathWorks in Natick, Mass., to combine the LDRA tool suite with Simulink modelling tools to assist in software standards compliance. The companies made the announcement this week at the Embedded Systems Conference in Boston.
