New Products: Part 2

BOARD PRODUCTS: 6U CompactPCI processor blade for military and communications applications introduced by ADLINK

ADLINK Technology Inc. in Taipei, Taiwan, is introducing the CompactPCI-6210, a 6U CompactPCI processor blade based on quad- and dual-core 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 and Intel Core i5 processors for military, communications, and industrial control applications that require reliable, scalable, CompactPCI computing with a quad-core CPU and 2D/3D graphics engine with several displays. The PICMG 2.0-compliant CompactPCI-6210, which optionally operates in temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees Celsius, can operate in a system slot as a master or in a peripheral slot as a stand-alone blade for high-density computing applications.

The embedded computing board has as much as 16 gigabytes of DDR3-1600 memory, PICMG-2.9-compliant IPMI, remote management based on Intel vPro technology, and optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for security management. The embedded blade has dual-mode DisplayPort and DVI-I graphics interfaces. Its DisplayPort interface supports single-link DVI or HDMI with a passive adapter cable and analog VGA output via an active adapter cable, ensuring support for as many as four independent displays.

INTEGRATED CIRCUITS: 28-nanometer FPGA with PAX Technology Express lane PCI Express Gen3 switch introduced by Altera

Altera Corp. in San Jose, Calif., is introducing a 28-nanometer Stratix V GX field-programmable gate array (FPGA) with Express lane PCI Express Gen3 switch from PAX Technology Inc. in Sunnyvale, Calif. Stratix V GX FPGAs have hard PCI Express Gen3 IP blocks.

Stratix V FPGAs have as many as four hard PCI Express Gen3 x8 IP blocks, which support x1, x2, x4, and x8 lane configurations and provide transfer rates as fast as eight gigabits per second per lane. Hardening the PCI Express IP blocks in Stratix V FPGAs saves more than 100,000 logic elements compared to soft implementations, Altera officials say. The hard PCI Express Gen3 IP blocks embed the PCI Express protocol stack into the FPGA and include the transceiver modules, physical layer, data link layer, and transaction layer. Stratix V FPGA's PCI Express Gen3 IP targets PCI Express Base Specification Rev. 3.0, 2.x, and 1.x.

RF AND MICROWAVE: AR gains JITC certification for 50-watt power amplifier for use with PRC-117G and PSC-5D military radios

AR Modular RF in Bothell, Wash., has received additional certification from the U.S. Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., for its 50-watt AR-50 booster amplifier for use the AN/PRC-117G military radio from the Harris Corp. RF Communications division in Rochester, N.Y. JITC has certified the booster amplifier for use with the AN/PRC-117G and the Raytheon AN/PSC-5D multiband/multimission communication terminal.

The AR-50 boosts tactical radio signals from handheld and manpack multi-band VHF/UHF tactical radios that use legacy, proprietary, and emerging Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) waveforms. The amplifier provides 50 watts of output with as little as 3 watts input and offers two antenna ports for line-of-sight (LOS) or UHF satellite communications.

TEST AND MEASUREMENT: Compact USB RF and microwave power sensors and meters introduced by Tektronix for test and measurement

Tektronix Inc. in Beaverton, Ore., is introducing the PSM3000, PSM4000, and PSM5000 compact USB RF and microwave power sensors and meters for continuous-wave and pulse-modulation test and measurement in applications ranging from installation and maintenance of a wireless base station, production testing, or research and design for wireless devices and radar. The Tektronix PSM RF power meters come calibrated over their operating temperature range.

The meters also come with Microsoft Windows-based power meter application software for controlling the meter, displaying readings, and recording data. The Tektronix PSM series power sensors provide speeds up to 2,000 readings per second. A high-speed logging application moves this data into a host PC for analysis. The power meters have a dynamic range of -60 dBm to +20 dBm, and frequencies ranging from 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz.

DATABUSES AND NETWORKING: Rugged Ethernet switch for cost-sensitive homeland security applications introduced by Parvus

Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City is introducing the DuraNET 10-10 low-cost IP67 rugged Ethernet switch for homeland security applications, such as border security, disaster recovery, first-responder vehicles, drug enforcement, and other civilian mobile, tactical, or outdoor applications that must resist the effects of extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, dust, and rain. The DuraNET 10-10 has a dust-proof and waterproof design with IP67 environmental protection aimed at cost-sensitive commercial applications that may not require compliance to military standards, Parvus officials say. As an unmanaged Ethernet switch, the DuraNET 10-10 provides local area network (LAN) connectivity to IP-enabled equipment, such as onboard computers, cameras, sensors, monitoring devices, and command-and-control gear for situation awareness and information sharing.
