EDA / PCB Design

The world of electronic design automation is broad, covering everything from the simplest PCB to the most complex custom device. But without such tools, designers would be unable to create innovative consumer and industrial products.

In this section, New Electronics provides technical insight on the latest PCB design packages, as well as on the design tools essential to the creation of devices such as FPGAs and ASICs.

Microchip Microstick development board

Microchip has announced the Microstick for dsPIC33F and PIC24H development board, which it claims provides a low cost solution for designing with Microchip's 16bit PIC24H microcontrollers and dsPIC33F digital signal controllers (DSCs).

PCIe Medical LAN Card

Kontron has announced the PCIe Medical LAN Card, an IEC60601-1 compliant PCIe Gigabit Ethernet card, which can be used for the direct network connection of conventional IT equipment to medical devices.

PEAK 777VL2 single board computer

Industrial computing technology specialist, Nexcom, has launched a new PICMG 1.0 full size single board computer (SBC) which supports Intel 45nm Core 2 Duo/Quad technology and is equipped with the G41 chipset.

SBC supports Intel Atom processors

BVM's latest single board computer for embedded applications, the LP-170, is 100 x 72mm and conforming to the Pico-ITX form factor is designed to enable powerful embedded computing to be implemented in physically small enclosures. This, says BVM, reduces the size of the embedded computer heart of kiosks, media centres, PoS terminals, information points and similar equipment.

3D electromagnetic simulation software

Agilent Technologies has today unveiled Electromagnetic Professional (EMPro) 2010, a new release of its 3D electromagnetic (EM) modeling and simulation software for analysing the 3D EM effects of IC packages, connectors, antennas and other RF components.

New custom Front Panel service

Beta LAYOUT has announced the introduction of a new online service designed to enable users to configure their own Front Panel designs and place an order directly online.

COM Express Module

Adlink Technology's latest computer on module (COM), the Express-MV, is based on Intel's Core2 Duo processor and GS45 chipset with graphics media accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD.

Rugged carrier card for XMC mezzanine modules

Curtiss-Wright has introduced the 3U VPX VPX3-216 ExpressReach carrier card, designed to speed and ease the integration of XMC mezzanine cards (VITA 42.4) into embedded systems designed to be complaint with the OpenVPX(VITA 65) standard.

Motherboard has PCI, PCIe and ISA slots

The P4ELA from BVM is an SBC conforming to the Micro ATX 244 x 244mm form factor. It is suitable for high performance systems in industrial, gaming, digital surveillance and network security applications that require fast processing and graphics capability.

The ‘compact’ atom

Review Display Systems has introduced a low power, compact single board computer suitable for applications where space and power are at a premium.

Low power, RoHS compliant

Based on the 300MHz Vortex86SX CPU from DM&P, the ultra low power ICOP-6127 measures 102 x 144mm and offers features such as LAN, 3 x USB 2.0 ports, 8 x Serial Ports (1 port configurable as RS485) LPT, floppy and 32 lines of general purpose I/O.
