Market Highlights:

Digital camera produce digital image records cinematic image in digital appearance. Dissimilar to film photographs which relatively have enormous resolution, digital camera accumulate images digitally in a memory chip which is an alternative to recording them on the film. Once the photograph is taken it can be initialized to a computer system displayed on the screen and printed. Digital cameras shares optical structure, commonly using lens with a fluctuating diaphragm to spotlight on to an image pickup device. Many current devices are adequate to grab sound or video further to still images. The major influence of digital camera is that making photos economical and quick being there is no film processing. The biggest producer of the film Kodak refined photo CD format which has come to be de facto barometer for accumulating digital photograph.[Continue reading →]

Spectrum\'s SCAPP Currently digitizers have a bottleneck caused by having to use either the host PC's central processor with 8 or 16 cores or a FPGA that is complex to program. Spectrum Instrumentation has solved this problem with its new SCAPP software option - the Spectrum CUDA Access for Parallel Processing - that opens an easy-to-use yet extremely powerful way to digitize, process and analyze electronic signals. SCAPP allows a CUDA-based Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) to be used directly between any Spectrum digitizer and the PC. The big advantage is that data is passed directly from the digitizer to the GPU where high-speed parallel processing is possible using the GPU board's multiple (up to 5000) processing cores. That provides a significant performance enhancement when compared to sending data directly to a PC that may have only 8 or 16 cores. It becomes even more important when signals are being digitized at high-speeds such as 50 MS/s, 500 MS/s or even 5 GS/s.

It consists of the new platform-board M2p, which will be the PCIe base for all upcoming products for the next years. The other part is the new 59xx module, which will be available in many variations. M2p platform and 59xx module form 13 different new digitizer cards with lots of options regarding speed and channels.

Oliver Rovini, CTO at Spectrum, said: "These products will be the heart of a new mid-range digitizer series which is designed to cover signal frequencies from 1 MHz to 40 MHz. Within that range, the new units will smoothly replace all our current 12, 14 and 16-bit models giving our existing customers an easy upgrade path with a lot of technical advantages. As such, we see many applications for these new products in the areas of Ultrasound, Laser, Lidar, Radar, Automotive and big physics experiments."[Continue reading →]

AICSYS Inc. maintains your legacy system while help you migrate to the new application. Some existing Industrial and Military automations were invested heavily in expensive system such as control automation and data acquisition application. Legacy System appears when an obsolete or phase out computer hardware are still in use; The main cause for legacy system when a functional system cannot be reintegrated or transferred to a newer system due to hardware functionalities and new technology compatibilities.[Continue reading →]

ANDOVER, Mass. - Nov. 1, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced the BuiltSAFE™ GS Multi-Core Renderer for the Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC family. Part of the BuiltSAFE Graphics Suite, the Multi-Core Renderer runs on the multi-core ARM® Cortex® A53 processor inside the MPSoC and is certifiable to DO-178C at the highest design assurance level (DAL-A) as well as the highest Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL D).

The BuiltSAFE GS Multi-Core Renderer is a high performance, small footprint OpenGL library designed to render highly complex 3D graphics in safety-critical embedded systems. Unlike traditional software renderers that run on a single CPU core, the performance of the Multi-Core Renderer scales up with more CPU cores. Because it runs on the CPU, the Multi-Core Renderer enables high-quality graphics applications to be run on Zynq Ultrascale+ CG variants, which are not equipped with a hardware graphics core. Even variants of the Zynq Ultrascale+ that do include a graphics core can benefit from the easier certification processes of the Multi-Core Renderer. [Continue reading →]

Radar, communications, and SIGINT [signals intelligence] systems have traditionally combined sensor processing, data conversion, and signal processing hardware within single enclosures or equipment racks. Analog signals for antennas, transducers and other sensors were connected through cables, often causing loss and interference along the way. However, enabled by new data converter and field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology and evolving open embedded computing standards, system designers can now deploy small-form-factor (SFF) subsystems at each sensor site for distributed signal acquisition and preprocessing. Digitized signals are then delivered through optical cables, providing higher signal quality over longer connection distances while reducing size, weight, cost, and maintenance.[Continue reading →]

The design of radio equipment for the military market has evolved significantly from the use of transistor-based circuits to specialized and powerful integrated circuits (ICs). Designs may be geared towards rigid, single-purpose platforms or towards flexible, application-agnostic systems with dedicated digital signal processors (DSPs), such as software-defined radio (SDR). The one thing all of these approaches have in common: difficulty in estimating and understanding the cost/performance trade-offs of new designs.[Continue reading →]

ANDOVER, Mass. - Sept. 21, 2017 - Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced the launch of its Diagnostic Support Tools (DST) software suite, which provides the capabilities required for customers to build a robust subsystem Built-In-Test (BIT) for system integrity during system boot and application execution. Compatible with Mercury’s BuiltSECURE™ infrastructure, DST provides comprehensive, non-intrusive fault detection across processor boards, graphics cards, I/O modules, networks, backplanes, operating systems, and applications.

The DST suite delivers an extensible platform for all three stages of BIT operation: Power-on BIT (PBIT), Continuous BIT (CBIT), and operator Initiated BIT (IBIT). PBIT support includes tailored tests of Mercury’s hardware built-in self-test (BIST) results and software bring-up. CBIT supports continuous testing with a high level of test coverage due to the low-overhead implementation, and is tunable depending on the hardware and software requirements. IBIT supports running full diagnostics during application execution or while in a halted state for debugging or triggered events.[Continue reading →]
