The latest in the network interface series of FMCs is the FMC108. It features dual QSFP+ ports for 40GbE/SRIO, PCIe, and Aurora. The dual re-driver is on-board, allowing long copper cables to be used. The FMCs meet the VITA 57 specifications for FPGA Mezzanine Cards (FMCs). The front panel also has dual sets of LEDs for USER0, USER1, and PRESENT. VadaTech develops custom FMCs or FPGAs upon request.

VadaTech offers FMCs in three types: networking interface, A/D and D/A conversion, and RF modules. The company also provides the full Xilinx suite of FPGA carriers and several Altera-based designs.

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.
