VadaTech Announces FMC with Dual NVMe Solid State Drives and RS-485/422

VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the FMC257. The FMC257 is a storage module with dual NVMe storage SSD which provides high speed and low latency read/write.

Henderson, NV - September 4, 2019 - VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the FMC257. The FMC257 is a storage module with dual NVMe storage SSD which provides high speed and low latency read/write. The module allows the FPGA to access a large capacity of storage in a compact space. The FMC257 interfaces to the carrier via dual PCIe x4 (DP0-3 and DP4-7), with supporting IP being available for VadaTech carriers.


The storage has an option for SED which is hardware-based AES-256 Encryption engine. In addition, the FMC257 provides eight RS-485/422 RX plus eight RS-485/422 TX, and eight single-ended +3.3V input or outputs (user configurable per I/O).

The RS-485/422 configuration can be selected as full-duplex RS-422 (independent RX/TX pairs with RX termination) or half-duplex RS-485 (RX/TX pairs tied together, no termination on board) based on the ordering option. The FMC257 can provide power of up to 12W to an external module.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
