FPGA/ASIC/DSP

Despite the availability of a range of commodity products, designers often need to turn to custom devices to meet particular needs. But which technology best suits the application? Should you base your design around an FPGA or is it better to use an ASIC? Can you meet your design requirements using a DSP?

In this section, New Electronics brings you the latest developments from the advanced platforms market, looking at how to develop and apply FPGA, ASIC and DSP technology.

Intelligent power switch

Power semiconductor specialist, STMicroelectronics has introduced an intelligent power switch (IPS) for use in industrial controls. It is designed to provide improved accuracy to minimise energy losses and prevent system errors when faults occur.

New PXI flex DIO fpga card

Expanding on its line of 3U PXI dynamic digital I/O cards, Geotest now offers a user configurable fpga 3U PXI card that features 160 digital I/O signals for specific application needs.

Ethernet XMC module

High bandwidth connectivity solutions specialist, AdvancedIO Systems, has announced the V1121, a conduction cooled 10Gigabit Ethernet XMC module with dual front panel optical interfaces.
