Henderson, NV - August 9, 2017 - VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VT988. The VT988 is a TI ADC08B3000 based 16-channel data acquisition platform capable of synchronous sampling 8-bit ADCs at up to 3 GSPS. All input data channels pass through a Virtex-7 485T FPGA which is user programmable for filtering/DDC. Data can be output through dual front-panel 10 GbE or processed by the on-board JetsonTX2 module, which is ideal for CUDA-based signal processing or AI analysis. The VT988 also has a Layer 2 Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch which provides quad GbE through RJ-45 interface to the front panel and allows interconnection among the subsystems.

The NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2 features an integrated 256-core NVIDIA Pascal™ GPU @ 1300MHz, a hex-core ARMv8 64-bit CPU complex, and 8GB of LPDDR4 memory with a 128-bit interface. The CPU complex combines a dual-core NVIDIA Denver 2 alongside a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57. Front-panel USB and HDMI are available for user interface, making the VT988 ideal as a base platform for comprehensive signal monitoring systems.
The VT988 is AC powered for convenience, 1U height and 10" (255 mm) deep, and can be used as a desktop appliance or 19" rack-mount. VadaTech also offers extended temperature and conformal coating options for harsh environments.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
