Those interested in collaborating with Matrox and developing M-Series driver source code to better meet their specific requirements can contact Matrox. Developers authorized under specific license agreements can then gain access to various tools and resources, including the appropriate Matrox programmer's guide, register specifications, as well as consultation on suggested engineering and related devices to be used during the design process.

M-Series solutions offer an array of multi-display desktop-management features and render pristine images across multiple monitors boasting resolutions of up to 8MP. Meanwhile, the capability to combine multiple cards together in a single system can yield a multitude of configurations. Setting the bar in terms of versatility, quality, and long life cycles in such mission-critical environments as avionics, military, transportation, process control, and governmental sectors, M-Series' already impressive level of functionality is primed for expansion in those and countless other markets.

The display drivers to Matrox's highly successful G450, G450 Low Profile and G450 PCI graphics cards already possess open-source status for Linux 32 and 64-bit operating systems. Matrox is confident this latest bid to reach out to M-Series customers and potential business partners alike will prove to be just as mutually beneficial moving forward.

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.
