ADLINK Technology introduced the GIE64+ quad-port GigE vision frame grabber. The GIE64+ is a PCI Express x4 lane, PoE (Power Over Ethernet) frame grabber/network interface card. It supports four independent Gigabit Ethernet ports for multiple GigE Vision device connections with data transfer rates up to 1000 Mb/s, which is found with most GigE Vision cameras. ADLINK’s GIE64+ also features IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol, multi-channel synchronization and smart PoE application programming interface.
Moxa introduced the DA-683 x86-based embedded computer. The DA-683 embedded system features the 1.66 GHz Intel Dual Core Atom D510, DVI-I, six LANs, two serial ports, four DIs, four DOs, four USB 2.0 ports, CompactFlash, and two peripheral expansion slots. The Moxa DA-683 supports IEC 61850-3, IEEE 1613, and IEEE 1588 version 2. The IEEE 1588 v.2 precision time protocol gives automation systems highly precise time accuracy for event logging. The is fanless rackmount computer ideal for power automation and power substation applications.
Conemtech introduced the M50-34 module for high accuracy time and frequency synchronization. The M50-34 enables any device with an Ethernet interface to synchronize to a PTP master clock in the network at 100ns accuracy by just re-wiring the Ethernet interface. The M50-34 reduces the components count, simplifies the layout and lowers the board manufacturing cost for products requiring external packet based synchronization. The M50-34 will be sampling by end of this month.
