Curtiss-Wright Controls announced its CHAMP-AV6 VPX DSP engine which delivers a sustained intercard data rate of 8.68 GB/s, a 16× improvement over the quad PowerPC-VME-based DSP engine. The device uses the standard IPC communications library, highlighting the inherently low overhead of both SRIO and the IPC library, which together were able to deliver approximately 92 percent of the “wire speed” of the SRIO links. Features include four Freescale 8641 single/dual-core processors, backplane connectors capable of handling signaling speeds in excess of 6.25 Gbits/sec, and 1.0" pitch option defined by the VPX-REDI standard (VITA 48) that enables the use of several enhanced mechanical design elements to achieve higher power dissipation.
Connect One announced the IIEVB-PIC-2128-110/220 reference design and a corresponding evaluation board that bring together the 16-bit MCU for application control and the CO2128 iChip for secure, reliable TCP/IP connectivity to LAN and GPRS networks. Using the evaluation board, developers can quickly and easily develop an IP-enabled embedded system where the application resides on the PIC24 MCU and the networking and security are provided by the CO2128 iChip.
Enabling switching PCIe 2.0 data rates at 5.0Gbps and operating at 1.8V, 2.5V, or 3.3V, the MAX4888A and MAX4889A dual, passive PCIe switches allow multiple PCIe graphics cards to be used in PCs and servers. The MAX4888A (dual single-pole/double-throw- 2 × SPDT) is suited for switching two Rx or Tx equivalent lanes while the MAX4889A quad switch offers twice the capacity, handling four equivalent lanes of PCIe data with the equivalent half lanes used as one source and two destinations or two sources and one destination to minimize the effects of crosstalk. Both feature a single digital-control input (SEL) to switch signal paths designed to minimize power and skew and offer a zero delay switch. Specifications include operation from a single +3.0V to +3.6V power supply and down to +1.65V over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.

Based on the high-performance IntelR Atom processor Z500 series, the RadiSys Procelerant Z500 addresses handheld and mobile applications with features such as 1GB memory, a MicroSD socket, and an extended input voltage range for battery power. Compatible with the Type 2 COM Express pin-out, the 85 mm × 70 mm module can pair with the RadiSys heatspreader/mechanical adapter to provide drop-in replacement for existing Basic Form Factor designs.
With the precharging resistors for damping inrush currents integrated in the housing, the B44066S*J230/N230 Series of EPCOS capacitor contractors can create a 100-kvar circuit with a single device for PFC systems with and without reactors. The contactors extend the service life of the capacitor and PFC system via optimized switching behaviour, and are also equipped with an auxiliary contact. Available from stock at a cost of $290 each.
The Cannon PHD SuperLC connector from ITT Interconnect Solutions meets or exceeds Lucent 640-252-053 and Telcordia GR-326 requirements, making it suitable for military/aerospace, telecom service, and industrial data communications applications. The connector features a tunable optical cartridge that functions as a standalone optical element separate from the connector housing
Measuring 1.0 mm × 0.5 mm × 0.25 mm, Avago Technologies’ VMMK-1218 and -1225 field effect transistors (FETs) occupy less than 5 percent the volume of a standard SOT-343 package. The VMMK-1225 supports 0.5 GHz to 26.5 GHz frequency ranges with a noise figure of less than 0.95 dB and 12 dB available gain under 50 ohms conditions at 12 GHz. The FET also offers 23 dBm output third-order intercept and 8 dBm output power.
Provided in a 6-pin model as well as 5-pin and 7-pin versions compliant with PICMG EXP.0 CompactPCI Express, the Universal Power Module family of multipoint connectors from ERNI Electronics have a current carrying capacity of 18A per contact at 20°C. Hot-swap capable, the pressfit angled male devices can supply power to daughter cards in conjunction with 2 mm ERmet connectors
Wind power is breaking new records in Spain, accounting for just over 40 percent of all electricity consumed during a brief period last weekend. As heavy winds lashed Spain on Saturday evening wind parks generated 9,862 megawatts of power which translated to 40.8 percent of total consumption.
Premo EMC's EMI FVDT filters are intended for frequency investors destined to wind turbine generator.

Using 15-bit vertical resolution, Agilent Technologies’ N6030A (PXI) and N8241A (LXI) PXI-and LXI-based arbitrary waveform generators (AWGs) can create simultaneous wide-bandwidth and high-resolution signals for electronic testing of radar, satellite, telecom or military communication equipment. Offers a spurious-free dynamic range of less than -65 dBc per channel, DC to 500 MHz, with a noise floor of less than -150 dBc/Hz. When combined with the Agilent PSG vector signal generator wideband I/Q upconverter, the AWGs can achieve modulation bandwidths as high as 1 GHz at up to 44 GHz for IF and RF subsystem testing. Each of the four-slot generators’ two channels offer 1.25 GS/s with a signal bandwidth of up to 500 MHz and a standard waveform length of 8 MS per channel, expandable to 16 MS.
