MAC layer sup­port

Na­tional In­stru­ments (NI) has an­nounced MAC layer sup­port for its LabVIEW Com­mu­ni­ca­tions 802.11 ap­pli­ca­tion frame­work. Wire­less re­searchers can take ad­van­tage of the new multi-user MAC layer en­hance­ments to the 802.11 ap­pli­ca­tion frame­work to go be­yond the PHY layer to solve com­plex net­worklevel prob­lems and make the 5G vi­sion a re­al­ity. They can pair the 802.11 ap­pli­ca­tion frame­work with NI soft­ware de­fined ra­dio hard­ware to rapidly con­duct net­work-level, real-time, over-the-air pro­to­typ­ing ex­per­i­ments for a wide range of Wi-Fi and 5G MAC/PHY re­search.


• Sup­ports up to 80MHz of real-time band­width and full bi-di­rec­tional com­mu­ni­ca­tions

• In­cludes MAC layer fea­tures in­clud­ing CSMA/CA, RTS, CTS, NAV and re­trans­mis­sion

Pres­sure sen­sor

Melexis has launched a new, highly ac­cu­rate pres­sure sen­sor in­tended for harsh me­dia ap­pli­ca­tions, es­pe­cially in the au­to­mo­tive sec­tor. The new MLX90818 is a pack­aged ab­so­lute pres­sure sen­sor that is fac­tory cal­i­brated to cover the range of 1.0 to 5.5 bar, mak­ing it use­ful for nor­mally as­pi­rated, di­rect in­jec­tion and turbo-charged en­gine ap­pli­ca­tions. The highly in­te­grated sen­sor in­cludes pro­vi­sion for an ex­ter­nal NTC for tem­per­a­ture mea­sure­ment and is housed in a 4mm x 5mm DFN pack­age. The MLX90818 re­quires very few ex­ter­nal com­po­nents, al­low­ing OEMs to de­velop small and rugged man­i­fold air pres­sure (MAP) sen­sors. X-fac­tor • Has 18V over volt­age ca­pa­bil­ity • Can op­er­ate from -40°C to +150°C, mak­ing it suit­able for al­most all un­der-the-hood ap­pli­ca­tions



Mi­crochip Technology has re­leased a new mi­cro­con­troller (MCU) that com­bines spec­i­fied ra­di­a­tion per­for­mance with the low cost of de­vel­op­ment as­so­ci­ated with com­mer­cial off-theshelf (COTS) de­vices. The ATmegaS64M1 is the

sec­ond 8-bit megaAVR MCU from Mi­crochip that uses a de­vel­op­ment ap­proach called CO TS-to-ra­di­a­tion tol­er­ant. The new MCU, along with its full de­vel­op­ment toolchain in­clud­ing de­vel­op­ment kits and code con­fig­u­ra­tor, can be used to be­gin de­vel­op­ment of hard­ware, firmware and soft­ware. When the fi­nal sys­tem is ready for the pro­to­type phase or pro­duc­tion, the COTS de­vice can be re­placed with a pin-out com­pat­i­ble, ra­di­a­tion-tol­er­ant ver­sion in a 32-lead ce­ramic pack­age (QFP32) with the same func­tion­al­ity as the orig­i­nal de­vice. This leads to sig­nif­i­cant cost sav­ings while also re­duc­ing de­vel­op­ment time and risks.


• Ac­cu­mu­lated to­tal ion­is­ing dose (TID) be­tween 20 to 50 Krad (Si)

• Fully im­mune from sin­gle-event latchup (SEL) up to 62 MeV.cm²/mg

Field­DAQ de­vices

Na­tional In­stru­ments has an­nounced the launch of a new range of rugged, dis­trib­uted and syn­chro­nised data ac­qui­si­tion (DAQ) de­vices—called Field­DAQ, which are the most rugged NI DAQ de­vices ever cre­ated. They can ac­quire ac­cu­rate, re­li­able mea­sure­ments in se­vere test cell and out­door en­vi­ron­ments – dur­ing the rain, sleet and snow or in the mud. Field­DAQ de­vices have an ingress pro­tec­tion rat­ing of up to IP67 (dust and wa­ter re­sis­tant). These rugged DAQ de­vices are built on the flex­i­ble and con­fig­urable hard­ware and soft­ware plat­forms that NI is known for, and which sets them apart. With open and ex­pand­able Field­DAQ so­lu­tions, test en­gi­neers can keep pace with prod­uct de­sign cy­cles and help re­duce the over­all cost of test­ing, as op­posed to the lim­i­ta­tions of ex­ist­ing de­vices with func­tion­al­ity de­fined by closed, pro­pri­etary soft­ware.


• Can op­er­ate in -40 °C to 85 °C en­vi­ron­ments

• Can sus­tain shocks of 100g and vi­bra­tions of 10g Na­tional In­stru­ments

In­te­grated cel­lu­lar-cum-Wi-Fi pro­to­col ver­i­fi­ca­tion so­lu­tion

Keysight Tech­nolo­gies has an­nounced a so­lu­tion that sup­ports si­mul­ta­ne­ous cel­lu­lar and Wi-Fi test­ing. The T5510S cel­lu­lar-cum-Wi-Fi em­u­la­tion sys­tem is a pow­er­ful, flex­i­ble plat­form en­abled by the com­bi­na­tion of Keysight’s UXM net­work em­u­la­tor and the Ixia So­lu­tions Group’s wave test sys­tem. The re­sult, claim com­pany sources, is an in­dus­try first—a test plat­form cov­er­ing a com­plete cel­lu­lar and WiFi sys­tem, from data traf­fic generation to phys­i­cal trans­mis­sion, Lay­ers 1 to 7.


• Pro­vides si­mul­ta­ne­ous cel­lu­lar and Wi-Fi sig­nalling tests

• In­cludes the full pro­to­col stack, from Layer 1 to Layer 7, for multi-mode de­vices

In­dus­trial PC plat­form

Artesyn Em­bed­ded Tech­nolo­gies has re­leased a new model in its MaxCore plat­form of com­put­ing servers. The MaxCore in­dus­trial PC (IPC) plat­form of­fers high per­for­mance, high den­sity and scal­able ver­sa­til­ity for de­vel­op­ers of in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions such as ma­chine vi­sion, video sur­veil­lance, data ac­qui­si­tion and con­trol, data an­a­lyt­ics and fog com­put­ing. Based on the PCI Ex­press ar­chi­tec­ture, the MaxCore IPC plat­form can meet a wide range of com­pute, I/O or image pro­cess­ing re­quire­ments us­ing Artesyn, third­party, or cus­tom PCIe cards. The 3U (133.4 mm) high sys­tem is just 508mm deep and de­signed for mount­ing in stan­dard 48.26 cm server racks.


• The MaxCore IPC plat­form has an In­tel Xeon pro­ces­sor D based moth­er­board con­nected with 15 PCIe slots • Four DDR4 DIMM mem­ory slots in the sys­tem can pro­vide up to 128GB RAM
