AMD APU-based board for x86-based embedded systems AMD’s newly launched Gizmo board is a low-cost board geared toward x86-based embedded system development, powered by an AMD Embedded GSeries Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). Measuring 102x102mm, the Gizmo x86 development board can run a variety of operating systems including Android, Linux, RTOSes and Windows. The Gizmo board includes the G-T40E dualcore processor running at 1.0 GHz, combined on a single die with AMD Radeon HD 6250 discrete-class graphics. The board provides a performance capacity of 52 gigaFLOPS (GFLOPS) at less than 10 watts. Custom high- and low-speed edge connectors enable a full range of functions. The board offers a power-efficient foundation for high-performance multimedia content delivery. AMD www.amd.com OpenVPX fanless embedded computer Emerson Network Power has launched its first system-level OpenVPX fanless enclosure - including power, storage and processor elements - to minimize size, weight and power (SWaP) for high performance embedded computing applications. The VPX3000 includes a configurable I/O Adapter Board (IAB) that routes I/O from the payload blades to the front of the enclosure. The IAB is designed to mate with Emerson Network Power’s iVPX7225 processor blade, based on the Intel 3rd generation Core mobile chipset. The VPX3000 accepts up to three 3U conduction cooled OpenVPX modules and includes a VITA-62 compliant AC or DC power supply with a MIL-38999 power input connector and a front panel switch. Emerson Network Power www.emerson.com Prototype platform tests real-time vehicle software With two prototyping platforms, Fraunhofer ESK is addressing the needs of software developers in the automotive industry. The platforms enable developers to test safety-critical softwarebased vehicle functions in particular in the domains of infotainment and driver assistance systems. Fraunhofer’s Automotive Real-Time Prototyping System (ARTiS) platform currently is available in two flavors - ARTiS-RT for real-time applications and ARTiS-XT for applications that require significantly higher computing performance. ARTiS-RT is a real-time enabled platform based on the PowerPC architecture. As a prototype ECU it can run the algorithms for vehicle control systems in electric cars and gateway applications. The product supports all common automotive data bus systems such as CAN, MOST, FlexRay and Ethernet. Fraunhofer ESK www.esk.fraunhofer.de Universal Debug Engine version 4.0.2 PLS Programmierbare Logik & Systeme presents an optimized test and debugging solution, the Universal Debug Engine (UDE) version 4.0.2, for Infineon Technologies’ ARM Cortex-M0 core-based 32-bit Microcontroller family XMC1000 that delivers 32-bit performance at 8-bit prices. Both the UDE 4.0.2 and PLS’s Universal Access Device family seamlessly support the internal debugging resources and peripheral units of the highly integrated XMC1000 components developed for use in intelligent sensor and actuator applications, LED controls, digital power conversion, and controllers. The integrated FLASH/ OTP programming functionality of the UDE guarantees maximum speeds in the whole Delete-Download-Programming Verify cycle.
