VadaTech Announces MicroTCA Overview Guide

VadaTech has developed a MicroTCA Overview Guide that provides a detailed explanation of the technology, along with product examples.

Henderson, NV - Apr 4, 2014 - VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, has developed a MicroTCA Overview Guide that provides a detailed explanation of the technology, along with product examples.


The MicroTCA architecture has seen growing popularity in several applications. It has been adopted as the key architecture for High Energy Physics and is rapidly growing in the Mil/Aero community. To help new potential customers understand MicroTCA and AdvancedMCs (AMCs), VadaTech has developed the guide.

The MicroTCA Overview Guide is 50 pages long, with detailed section on the shelves, system management, power, cooling units, backplane, AMCs and more. The guide provides an in-depth overview into how the technology works; especially in key areas such as platform management. There are also several product examples based on the company's full ecosystem of MicroTCA products.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
