Raspberry Pi bundled with Matlab/Simulink Farnell element14 is listing a package that puts together MATLAB and Simulink Student Suite software with a complete starter kit of Raspberry Pi hardware. The MATLAB and Simulink Student Suite – Raspberry Pi Bundle includes the Raspberry Pi Starter Kit and the MATLAB and Simulink Student Suite from MathWorks, allowing the student or self learner to start a project with modelbased block diagrams on the Raspberry Pi 2 using the same tools commercial engineers and scientists use every day. “Learning programming is the number one priority for Raspberry Pi users. Among students Raspberry Pi is our most popular single board computer” said Claire Doyle, Global Head of Raspberry Pi at element14 Farnell element14 www.element14.com XBee Wireless Connectivity Kit, from Digi and Digi-Key This kit is designed to allow developers to gain expertise and insight to applications of wireless connectivity with XBee modules. M2M product designer Digi International, and distributor Digi-Key Electronics (not otherwise connected than by coincidence of names) offer the Digi XBee Wireless Connectivity Kit (XKB2-AT-WWC), for an initial-offer-period price of $59. The platform provides a resource for developers to better understand how XBee RF modules can be used for wireless device connectivity and sensor networking solutions. The kit features two XBee Grove Development Boards – a board for XBee modules that incorporates the universal 4-pin connector used by Grove sensors, two XBee RF modules and micro- USB cables. Digi-Key Electronics www.digikey.com 4-die 365nm LED engine delivers 4W of flux Solid State Supplies now makes available of a new highpower and high-performance ultra-violet (UV) light emitter from manufacturer LED Engin, aimed at a wide range of industrial applications. The LZ4-04UV00 365nm LuxiGen combines a high performance surface-mount package with the latest generation of high-power LED die. The 2.2x2.2mm light-emitting surface area for a 7.0x7.0mm emitter footprint provides exceptional optical power density, delivering 2.9W radiant flux output at 700mA or more than 4W at 1000mA. The flat glass lens facilitates the use of imaging optics as well as light pipes and other optics enabling extreme narrow beam angles – down to +/–3°. Solid State Supplies www.sssltd.com Netduino 3 for fast prototyping, in distribution Distributor Mouser Electronics has the Netduino 3 platform, aimed at both quick-to-market commercial hardware solutions, and personal electronics projects, with maximum design flexibility and reduced risk. This newest version of the open-source Netduino platform includes, say its makers, the best of the features that made previous versions popular, with added Wi-Fi connectivity. Netduino 3 is an open-source electronics platform designed around the Microsoft .NET Micro Framework, combining the ease of highlevel coding and the raw feature set of the STM32 F4 family of microcontrollers. The 32-bit ST microcontroller on the Netduino 3 has a 168 MHz ARM Cortex-M4 processor with 2 MBytes of dual-bank, read-while-write flash memory and up to 256 kBytes of SRAM, including 64 kBytes of core-coupled memory (CCM). Mouser www.mouser.com Excelsys adds Divisoft to its distribution network High efficiency power supply manufacturer Excelsys Technologies has added Divisoft AB to its distribution network. The new partner will distribute Excelsys’ solutions to OEM customers in the industrial, medical and government sectors throughout Scandinavia & Northern Europe. Divisoft will particularly focus on our Xgen, UltiMod and Xsolo platforms all of which are all field proven and have a 5 year warranty. These platforms meet the most stringent certification requirements from the Medical, Industrial and Government Sectors including; UL/EN60950 2nd edition, UL/EN60601-1 3rd edition, MIL STD-810G, MIL-STD- 461F, SEMI F47. Divisoft AB www.divisoft.se Acal BFi and Stollmann announce distribution agreement Acal BFi and Stollmann E+V GmbH have entered into an agreement to distribute Bluetooth modules throughout Europe. Acal BFi will incorporate Stollmann’s Bluetooth modules into their product portfolio effective immediately. Based in Hamburg, Germany, Stollmann has specialised in the development of Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy modules for years. Thanks to its extremely low energy consumption, the “BlueMod+S” single-mode module is especially wellsuited for use in sensors and other battery-operated applications. The pin-compatible “BlueMod+SR” dual-mode module is available for easy Bluetooth pairing with NFC handover and it is compatible with classic Bluetooth. With the development kit for the single-mode module, also available through Acal BFi, customers can develop their own firmware on a previously-certified Bluetooth module.
