CMOS Image sensor wafer San Jose, Calif., USA - 8 March, 2018. Testing CMOS image sensors on a wafer-size scale is not easy because of the challenges of creating uniform illumination over a large area. Presto Engineering has developed a custom, computer-controlled solution that illuminates sections of the wafer in turn. Integrating the results enables the whole wafer to be tested automatically for an array of large sensors or even sensors that are right up to the size of an entire 12-inch wafer.

"An entire wafer can be tested in a laboratory using a similar method," explained Martin Kingdon, Presto Engineering's VP of Sales. "However laboratories are not geared up for fast commercial testing so we designed our own solution to test any size wafer. Importantly, we can do this in small to medium sized test runs here in Europe at our Class 10K cleanroom facility in Meyreuil, France, near Aix-en-Provence. We believe that we are probably the only such commercial test service to be available in Europe."[Continue reading →]

ANDOVER, Mass. - Feb. 13, 2018 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced the launch of its new BuiltSECURE™ TRRUST-Stor® solid-state drive (SSD) featuring high-speed serial ATA and non-volatile memory express interfaces to a host computing system. The new secure SSD product marries one terabyte of industrial-grade multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash with Mercury’s exclusive ARMOR® 4 NAND processor. With a compact, military-hardened 2.5-inch form factor enclosure, Mercury’s new design architecture sustains 1GB per second read and write operations in environmentally rugged military applications without sacrificing security.

State-of-the-art defense electronics incorporate numerous sensor systems for real-time data collection. As more of these sensor systems are deployed in military platforms, each system is also tasked with storing larger volumes of data per unit of time. These rich data streams must be stored for off-line analysis where the smallest signals of military interest must be discerned. However, continuous high-speed operation in thermally and mechanically stressful military environments places a tremendous demand on data storage devices to operate without interruption for extended periods of time. Further complicating this scenario, these systems also require the strongest encryption technology to ensure robust data protection in the event of enemy capture. [Continue reading →]

Nagoya University and Cadence jointly ported the ATK2-SC1 to the Tensilica processor platform, validating that it functions correctly and operates at competitive performance levels. With this port, developers working on advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), human machine interface (HMI), autonomous driving system and other automotive applications requiring the high computational capabilities of Tensilica processors can start early development of automotive applications on the TOPPERS automotive kernel. For more information about ATK2-SC1, visit https://www.toppers.jp/atk2.html.

Automotive electronic systems are increasing exponentially in complexity, making it increasingly challenging for electronic control units (ECUs) to perform their specific control functions while also connecting to the various automotive networks reliably. The AUTOSAR architecture organizes the building blocks that compose the ECU software stack, allowing multiple suppliers and OEMs to collaborate on the development of critical system components. Reuse of well-defined software components allows ECUs to be developed quickly and efficiently, and systems are becoming more heterogeneous in their deployment of processors and DSPs.[Continue reading →]

New family of pre-integrated systems speeds the development, and reduces the design risk for deployed application-specific solutions. ASHBURN, Va. – July 6, 2017 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today introduced a new family of pre-integrated rugged mission management systems designed to lower the cost, speed the development, and reduce the design risk for deployed application-specific solutions. Through the use of fully integrated and tested industry-leading COTS modules, these base systems are architected, pre-qualified and pre-verified to address the needs of specific mission requirements. By providing a proven pre-configured base solution, these systems deliver a significant “headstart” that significantly reduces the integrator’s development cycle and costs. Using one of Curtiss-Wright’s pre-integrated hardware solution sets as their starting point, a system integrator can easily and quickly customize the base system by with application-specific software and/or expanding the base system with additional components to meet their application’s unique requirements. The first member of this innovative new family of pre-integrated solutions is designed for Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Electronic Warfare (EW) applications. It will be followed by announcements for additional application-specific pre-integrated base systems designed for applications such as Radar, EO/IR, and Video/Display.

“More and more frequently, our customers are asking us to help them jumpstart their application specific system designs with cost-effective pre-integrated system architectures that quickly get them most of the way to completion of their development by using proven COTS elements,” said Lynn Bamford, senior vice president and general manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions division. “Our new family of application-specific mission management systems hits the sweet spot for these designers, with ‘pre-rolled’ systems targeted for applications such as Software Defined Radio and Electronic Warfare. These high-TRL systems provide our customers with an easy to customize base system that delivers a head-start for faster deployment while lowering risk to program schedule and budget.”[Continue reading →]
