Acrosser industrial computers have been widely used in machine control, factory automation and power factory monitoring.
the new Atom series solutions which include AMB-D255T1Mini-ITX industrial mainboard and AMB-N280S1 fanless 3.5-inch single board computer. AMB-D255T1 is equipped with an Intel D2550 Atom processor. AMB-N280S1 is equipped with an Intel N2800 Atom. Both have a 5~7 year product warranty.
Acrosser is providing a special price for these two boards to make them available for customers sooner. Please contact your local sales for more information.
Anyone remotely familiar with the critical embedded computer industry knows that suppliers thrive on design wins. They are the first step in filling the orders embedded computer and provide a good look into the health of the organization. Companies incentivize their sales teams to get key design wins that can assure business for years to follow. As important as design wins are, it is hard to brag about them. For many reasons, most of which could tip the competition, design wins are rarely talked about.
At Embedded Tech Trends 2013, several of the embedded computer were able to talk about programs where they have been successful. Let’s take a quick look at some of those programs where VITA technology has been deployed.
Regarding HDTV support, HomePlug AV enables a broadband-strength network connection via electrical wiring for high-demand applications such as streaming movies or online gaming. Since the introduction of the HomePlug AV gaming standard back in 2006, its purpose has been to provide high-quality, multistream, entertainment-oriented networking over existing AC wiring within the home. HomePlug AV employs advanced PHY and Medium Access Control (MAC) technologies that provide a 200 Mbps class power line network for video, audio, and data.
The MAC layer is designed to be highly gaming efficient, supporting both Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) and Collision Sense Multiple Access (CSMA)-based access with AC line cyclesynchronization. The TDMA provides quality of service assurances including guaranteed bandwidth reservation, high reliability, and tight latency and jitter control. The CSMA provides four priority levels. AC line cycle synchronization provides superior channel adaptation in the face of common line cycle synchronized noise. The central gaming coordinator controls network activities, allocating time for CSMA use and scheduling TDMA use.
Generally speaking, best practices are platform neutral – that’s why they’re called “best practices.” The subtleties endemic to embedded development notwithstanding, there are known standards for ensuring quality, regardless of platform. Avoiding memory leaks, for example, should be universal. Further, the relationship betweenstatic analysisandsoftwareisn’t necessarily defined by the application: It is defined by the purpose of thedevice. That said, running static analysis is a particularly important best practice forembedded software development.
