congatec AG, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, presents the conga-QMCB, a new mini carrier baseboard for space-critical applications based on the Qseven standard.
Operating an engineering shop on an extreme budget isn't easy. I have to watch my pennies. Let alone nickels. So here is what I use for schematic capture. TinyCAD. They don't have a lot of parts in their library but, making parts is easy. And the price is right.
congatec AG, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules, is set to expand its product portfolio with the addition of ARM technology. This will allow the company to offer products with extremely low power requirements in the future.
When I was a young engineer, I was involved in a pretty ugly incident with a three-phase power inverter. No, I didn't get hurt, but the incident shook me up a little. I had designed a three-phase matrix converter, and I had just got it working to the point where I could spin a motor.
Over the course of my 32 year career, I have seen the personal computer evolve from a Commodore VIC-20, to the dual core mobile workstation I am writing this blog with. From 1980 until now, on-board RAM has increased by over five orders of magnitude...
