Embedded World - Mar 12, 2015 - VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, now offers a dual FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) carrier per the VITA 57 specification. The AMC module features a Xilinx® Kintex-7 FPGA.


The AMC502 comes in a double module, mid-size AMC. It has 32 MB of Flash memory and an on-board crystal referenced clock source to provide at least 125 MHz as GTX reference input for PCIe, SRIO, and GbE. The LVDS crossbar switch and PLL provide improved clock flexibility and cleaner signals. VadaTech is also developing a version of its dual FMC carrier with a Virtex-7 FPGA.

VadaTech also offers a full suite of FPGAs with single FMC carriers from Virtex-6, Virtex-7, Kintex-7, Zynq-7, and Artix-7. The company has over 300 AMCs including ADC and DAC modules, FPGAs, processors, switches, graphics, storage, I/O, and other specialty boards.

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.
