AdaCore Launches QGen

QGen is a customizable and qualifiable code generator and model verifier for Simulink (R) and Stateflow (R) models, producing code in MISRA-C and SPARK/Ada. It is particularly well suited for developing and verifying real-time control systems requiring safety certification, against standards such as DO-178C (avionics), EN 50128 (rail), and ISO 26262 (automotive). Its model verifier detects run-time errors such as integer overflow and division by zero, and it can also find logic errors such as dead execution paths and can verify functional properties through Simulink Assertion blocks. The tool is highly configurable thanks to its open intermediate representation.

Quad DC/DC Regulator with Configurable 4A Output Array Powers FPGAs, ASICs & Microprocessors

The LTM4644 is a quad DC/DC step-down µModule regulator with 4A per output. Outputs can be paralleled in an array for up to 16A capability. Included in the package are the switching controllers, power FETs, inductors and support components. Operating over an input voltage range of 4V to 14V with an external bias supply, the LTM4644 supports an output voltage range of 0.6V to 5.5V each set by a single external resistor. Its high efficiency design delivers 4A continuous (5A peak) output current per channel. This device is ideal for applications in military, communications, data storage, industrial, transportation and medical systems. In conjunction with Arrow Electronics Ltd.
