USB video card delivers feature-rich H.264 compression In addition to measuring only 38x70mm while drawing only 1.5W of power, Sensoray’s Model 2253S USB video card has also met the rigorous safety, health, and environmental standards of the European Union in order to attain the CE mark. The latest software release from Sensoray allows MP4 files to be edited in Adobe Premiere with A/V sync preserved. The unit’s on-screen display text has also been doubled to 160 characters. The Model 2253S can also perform as a decoder, converting the compressed audio/video stream into standard analog video and audio signals, as well as offering closed-caption support for H.264 streams. It is well-suited for uncompromising capture of multiple video sources, such as radar and sonar processing, remote video surveillance and traffic monitoring. Sensoray provides an SDK for the Model 2253S that includes drivers, programming examples and comprehensive documentation for both Windows and Linux operating systems.

IAR has also announced the availability of a special support agreement for customers working with safety-critical systems. IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM has been tested and approved according to the requirements on support tools put forth in International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 61508, the international umbrella standard for functional safety, as well as International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 26262, which is used for automotive safety-related systems. The assessment has covered the relevant parts of IAR Systems’ development processes, as well as the safety-related customer documentation and the customer support. IAR www.iar.com/safety Acoustic adhesive vent protects portable electronics The GAW113 acoustic vent from W. L. Gore & Associates’ Portable Electronic Vents group is designed to provide dust and splash protection for acoustic openings in portable electronic devices such as scanners, two-way radios, tablet and laptop PCs. To function properly, portable electronic devices require acoustic openings that enable sound to enter and exit the system. If these openings are not adequately protected, contaminants such as dust and water can enter the enclosure and compromise the acoustic performance. The GAW113 vents are a proprietary non-woven composite material that adheres to the acoustic openings, providing a water spray efficiency of 90% with the ability to capture particulates as small as 5 microns (μm). It is a dark gray in color to provide a neutral complement to device designs and has a thickness of only 0.47mm. With an improved spray resistance to IP54 testing, a thinner profile and less than 2dB of acoustic transmission loss, the GAW113 vent provides superior performance to vents comprised of woven material.
