40GbE Added to Rugged 1U MicroTCA Chassis Platform Family from VadaTech

VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete applicationready platforms, now offers a 40GbE rugged 6-slot MicroTCA chassis in a 1U height.

Henderson, NV - November 1, 2017 - VadaTech, a manufacturer of embedded boards and complete application-ready platforms, now offers a 40GbE rugged 6-slot MicroTCA chassis in a 1U height. The chassis is designed to meet MIL-STD-901D and 810G for shock and vibration and MIL-STD-461F for EMI.


The VT953 extends the successful VT95x family of rugged 1U chassis, competing with rugged architectures typically at least 3U high for comparable capability and performance. The VT953 holds up to 6 Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AMCs) and has an integrated MCH with IEEE1588/SyncE/GPS capabilities, now with full layer 3 managed switch supporting a comprehensive enterprise-grade routing and switching feature set and providing dual 40GbE to each AMC slot plus dual 40GbE to the front panel.

The rugged 1U chassis offers front-to-rear cooling with a selection of DC power supplies, including wide input range (-36 to -75V), optional JTAG Switch Module, and optional Virtual JTAG probe. Modules with front panel retention screws can be plugged into the chassis, and VadaTech offers special retention clips so that standard MicroTCA.0 AMCs can be securely held into the chassis to meet shock requirements.

VadaTech provides the full ecosystem of MicroTCA and OpenVPX products, including payload modules, chassis platforms, switches, and power modules. Rugged ATR chassis are available in several formats.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
