System Design

Many electronics engineers create board level products, but their boards are integrated into systems at some point. And systems need things like enclosures, power supplies and environmental management.

New Electronics recognises the importance of system design and its impact on the final product. In this section, New Electronics reviews the latest developments in system design and brings visitors to the website information on how these developments are being applied.

IQR digital I/Q data recorder

Rohde & Schwarz has introduced the R&S IQR digital I/Q data recorder, designed to record, store and replay digital rf signals loss free and in real time over the I/Q interface.

IQD launches ‘smallest & lightest crystal in the world’

According to IQD, the latest addition to its frequency product range, the CX-18, is 'possibly the smallest and lightest surface mount crystal in the world'. Housed in a hermetically sealed ceramic package and measuring 1.55 x 0.95 x 0.35mm, it has a typical weight of 1.8mg.


The conga-QA6 is a new mobile module from Congatec, featuring the new Intel Atom Processor E6xx series. It offers improved graphics performance and extended temperature range capabilities.

Rack mount or desktop integrated chassis

Verotec has introduced a 2U EMC screened, thermally managed and powered IEEE 1101.10/11 desktop or rack mount 19in chassis unit that can be supplied with either a horizontally mounted 6U 4 Slot cPCI or a 6U 4 Slot VME64x backplane.

Sponsored by Ansys: Accurate simulation

In the design of electronic components, the potential for signal integrity/EMI is great. It is difficult to predict and replicate as well as expensive to detect or measure. Accurate simulation can help your company move from signal integrity to product integrity — and product success. Read about the ANSYS soluton now.

Surface mount crystals

Frequency control specialist Euroquartz has announced the release of its latest ultra-miniature AT-cut crystals covering the frequency range 16 to 60MHz in fundamental mode.

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.

SAW crystal technology behind clock oscillator

Crystek Crystals' 1.090GHz SAW clock oscillator (ccso), the CCSO-014-1090, has been designed using SAW (surface acoustic wave) crystal technology and is said to provide a low noise, low jitter performance with true SineWave output.
