CrowdFunding - SL Interphase Launches Robot Kit "Logitraxx" on Kickstarter

Logitraxx is an FPGA based Do-it-Yourself robot learning kit for engineers and enthusiasts.

Chandler, Az July 17, 2014


Engineering Services Company SL Interphase, LLC launches a Kickstarter campaign for its first robotic kit called "Logitraxx." A first of its kind all FPGA based robotic system designed to instruct and demonstrate the fundamentals of FPGA based intelligent robotic systems.

The kit is primarily designed for engineers and enthusiasts within the do-it-yourself (DIY) community to help learn the fundamentals of FPGA development for robotic use. FPGAs can enhance the processing capability of computer systems up to hundreds of times faster than a non-FPGA based system making it possible for a much smarter robot.

However, FPGAs are still widely unknown within vast parts of the high tech community as they can be difficult to implement. The language used to develop FPGAs can also be challenging to learn as well. Logitraxx is designed primarily as a learning tool to help overcome these barriers and uniquely engineered to help with learning the fundamentals of FPGA design and hardware based sensor control.

Logitraxx is an open source design under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share-Alike 4.0 International License. Schematic and board drawing information will be provided at product release as well as sample code blocks driving similar types of sensors already widely popular with software based systems.

SL Interphase is an electronic design services company specializing in product development for commercial, industrial, and defense industries. We are also specialized in rugged electronics development for extreme environments. At SLI, we can handle all aspects of the development cycle from concept to production.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
