ASSET InterTech published a new eBook. The publication discusses how hardware-assisted debugging tools are able to tap into the embedded trace resources in Intel processors to methodically and quickly track bugs through the interrelated web of software, firmware and hardware. The title of the paper is: Faster Firmware Debug with Intel Embedded Trace Tools.

The LGX AG150 Dual Core Atom fanless system is ideal for kiosks, point-of-use terminals, manufacturing control, industrial automation, and remote data collection.
Logic Supply recently announced the LGX AU115 embedded system. The AU115 features an Intel Atom N270 processor, two RS-232 COM ports (one of which can be used as GPIO), RS-232/422/485 port, four USB 2.0 ports, DVI-I, dual Intel Gb LAN ports, two audio jacks, 12-volt DC power jack, small footprint, and low-profile chassis (less than 1.5″ thick). The extended temperature LGX AU115 is ideal for deployment in remote monitoring, outdoor kiosks, data acquisition, and networking applications.
Habey USA introduced the TPC-6507 tablet PC. The TPC-6507 tablet features the Intel Atom Z510, onboard 1GB RAM, integrated RFID reader, 7-inch LED-backlit touch pad, WIFI, Bluetooth, 6-cell Li-Ion replaceable battery, and mini USB port. The medical-grade TPC-6507 is ideal for healthcare assistance, retail management, and RFID-based smart card applications. The Habey TPC-6507 tablet PC supports Windows Embedded XP/7 and Linux operating systems.
Intel is acquiring Fulcrum Microsystems Inc. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The acquisition is subject to the approval of Fulcrum Microsystems shareholders, regulatory approval and satisfaction of customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2011. Fulcrum Microsystems is a privately held fabless semiconductor company that designs Ethernet switch silicon for data center network providers. It is based in Calabasas, California.
Intel announced a transistor breakthrough today. The company will manufacture the first transistors using a three-dimensional structure in high-volume production. The three-dimensional transistor, called Tri-Gate, will be used at the 22-nanometer node in an Intel Ivy Bridge microprocessor. The 3D Tri-Gate transistor is a revolutionary change from the current two-dimensional planar transistor structure used in computers, mobile phones, consumer electronics, and electronic controls within cars, spacecraft, household appliances, and medical devices.
IM Flash Technologies (IMFT) will manufacture a new 20nm 8-gigabyte multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash device. IMFT is a NAND flash joint venture of Intel and Micron Technology. The 20-nanometer 8GB device is sampling now. It will enter mass production in the second half of this year. Also later this year, Intel and Micron will start sampling a 16GB device. As a result, up to 128GBs of capacity can be packed into a single solid-state storage solution that will be smaller than a U.S. postage stamp.
American Portwell Technology introduced the CAR-4010 rackmount network security appliance. The CAR-4010 features the Intel C206 chipset, dual-channel DDR3 1333/1066 memory (up to 8GB), up to two SATA HDD or SSD, and eight GbE RJ45 onboard ports (or four GbE SFP and four GbE RJ45). The Portwell CAR-4010 1U communication appliance is ideal for network security applications (such as firewall, VPN, IDS/IPS, anti-spam, anti-virus and UTM), and network management applications (such as routers, RAS gateways, QoS, server load-balance, wireless controllers, medical DICOM and PACS, and industrial automation control via Ethernet TCP/IP).
