The new configurable Intel Atom processor E600C series features an Intel Atom E600 processor (formerly codenamed Tunnel Creek) and an Altera field programmable gate array (FPGA) in a single package. Prices of the E600C processors, formerly codenamed Stellarton, range from $61 to $106 in quantities of 1,000. The Intel Atom processors E665CT, E645CT, E665C, and E645C are scheduled to be available within two months. The E625CT and E625C will be available in the first quarter of 2011. The new Intel E600C processors are ideal for industrial machines, portable medical equipment, communications gear, vision systems, voice over Internet protocol devices, high-performance programmable logic controllers and embedded systems.
The Acromag APMC4110 busless PMC module carrier card enables the use of a PMC module in an independent stand-alone mode. The APMC4110 carrier card powers a PMC module and regulates the PCI bus start-up sequence to prevent a system lock-up by the connection to the local bus. For troubleshooting, a 14-pin Xilinx JTAG connector facilitates boundary scan debugging. Pricing for the Acromag APMC4110 starts at $275. The busless carrier card is ideal for custom computing applications based on a re-configurable FPGA module operating independently of VME, CompactPCI, or other bus-level resources.
Dialog Semiconductor introduced the DA9057 system level power management IC. The DA9057 is a highly integrated power management, audio and user interface controller for multimedia players, portable navigation systems and other handheld devices. The DA9057 features five on-board dc/dc converters that support 24-bit stereo audio headphone playback on a 5mW power budget. The DA9057 combines a flexible power sequencer with a fully programmable filter/mixer engine to support a wide variety of ARM-based multimedia processors.
