The gateway wraps CAN frames into TCP or UDP message packages and forwards them across the IP network. Configuration of the devices is provided by a web interface. It provides two High-speed CAN channels with a bit rate of up to 1 Mbit/s. The WLAN interface supports IEEE 802.11 b/g and establishes its connection via an internal chip antenna. Thanks to its extended operating temperature range of -40 to 85°C the PCAN-Wireless Gateway is suitable for use in industrial and automotive environments. PEAK System www.peak-system.com Hot-switchable variable attenuators up to 6 GHz Fairview Microwave’s compact hot-switchable variable RF attenuators can be used to reduce the amplitude of an electronic signature in many common electronic scenarios including lab testing equipment, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and power and signal monitoring systems. The devices come in 3 and 6GHz frequency models and several different connector configurations including SMA and N type connectors with side or rear mount positions. Several of these attenuators are hotswitchable, meaning attenuation can be changed on the fly without powering down the system, allowing test data to be read continuously. Several models with varying attenuation adjustments are available including 0 to 12 dB attenuation in 1 dB steps and 0 to 40 dB attenuation in 10 dB steps, with other options available upon request. Fairview Microwave www.fairviewmicrowave.com Peer-to-peer database simplifies IoT smart data discovery ITTIA has introduced version 6.0 of its flagship database software, ITTIA DB SQL, which brings new intelligence to data management on embedded systems and devices with true peer-to-peer replication. As the Internet of Things (IoT) will soon comprise billions of connected devices, discovery of proximate devices is a key component of new applications. By advertising and discovering nearby database replication services, ITTIA DB SQL 6.0 greatly simplifies interoperability between home automation systems, automotive entertainment systems, mobile handsets, and more. In this new hyper-connected world, devices can relate information to each other indirectly through cloud-based services on the Internet and directly over WiFi and other wireless technologies. This new release enables embedded systems, appliances, and personal devices to distribute locally stored data whenever a wireless connection is detected. The application software simply stores records in a replication-enabled database and authorized devices nearby will automatically receive a copy of the changes. This makes it easy for applications on diverse operating systems to interoperate and provide a seamless user experience. Version 6.0 also brings improvement throughout ITTIA DB SQL, from utilities down to the core transactional storage kernel. The ITTIA SQL Browser, which provides a graphical interface to create and edit embedded database files, can now also provision back-end RDBMS servers such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database to synchronize with ITTIA DB SQL.
