VadaTech Celebrates 10 Years of Innovative Embedded Computing Solutions

VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards, chassis, and complete application-ready platforms, is having its 10th anniversary on July 31, 2014.

VadaTech started in 2004, primarily focused on specialty products in the AdvancedTCA architecture. The company offered several RTM solutions and expanded to provide Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMCs). When MicroTCA came along in the 2006, the company increasingly shifted its focus to become the leader in the highly versatile COTS architecture.

"When I first saw the MicroTCA architecture, I was immediately sold. The rich features such as e-keying, shelf management and failover, multi-fabric protocol options, etc, in a compact, high-performance architecture was impressive", said Saeed Karamooz, CEO of VadaTech. "There is so much versatility in MicroTCA -- with options that are just not available in any other open standard architecture."

VadaTech now offers over 200 AMCs and is the industry's only provider of the full MicroTCA ecosystem from chassis platforms to AMCs, to MCHs, and more. The company recently invested in a $25 million state-of-the-art facility, tripling the number of production lines. The privately-held company is expecting to rapidly increase revenues this year and in 2015. This growth is a testament to VadaTech's innovation and the impressive performance and versatility of the MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA COTS architectures.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
