Lantronix launched their xSenso analog device server (ADS). xSenso enables sensors with analog outputs to send real-time data to any node on the network or over the Internet. The device remotely monitors and logs data from a variety of sensors — including temperature, humidity, pressure, level, flow, weight, and gas/air quality transmitters. xSenso can be IN-rail or wall mounted. It is available now for $235.
Microchip introduced their I2C MCP7940M Real-Time Clock/Calendar (RTCC) device. The stand-alone MCP79410 features 64 Bytes of SRAM and on-chip digital trimming circuit with a wide trimming range of +/-127 ppm. The digital-trimming circuit can compensate up to 11 seconds per day for crystal error. The Microchip device is ideal for home-appliance (microwaves, washing machines, dryers, ovens, thermostats), audio/video (radios, televisions, set-top boxes, digital recorders), and consumer electronics (printers, network routers, cameras).
A team of electrical engineers at Duke University have developed a wirelessly powered telemetry system. Their system features a chip that is light enough to attach to a flying dragonfly. The chip can transmit the electrical signals from neurons in real time. In the past, telemetry systems were too heavy and had to be used on immobilized dragonflies.
Micrium’s uC/OS-III real-time kernel is now officially source available. As a result, developers, researchers, and students can download uC/OS-III’s source code free of charge. Micrium is also making several PDF versions of the uC/OS-III, The Real-Time Kernel book available for free download. Each version is tailored to a different embedded platform.
Developer Assistant for real-time management of open source licensing and copyrights is now available to the developer community worldwide. Previously, Developer Assistant was for the Eclipse Integrated Development Platform (IDE). Developer Assistant is the only solution currently on the market to detect open source and other third party code in real-time. Detecting open source licenses as soon as the code is brought in or put together reduces cost and time associated with fixing related problems later down the road.
SYSGO, leading supplier of software solutions for the world’s most demanding safety and security applications, announced the availability of its flagship product PikeOS for the LEON processor based platforms. RTEMS applications can run concurrently with PikeOS native, ARINC-653 and POSIX applications thanks to the safe and secure virtualization technology provided by PikeOS.
Focusing on adapting their endpoint security and data loss prevention cloud services to the lifestyle of modern businessmen and gadget-loving home users, CoSoSys has just released the new My Endpoint Protector App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The new Software as a Service App brings real time device control monitoring and the possibility to stop data theft or data loss, identity theft or malware infections at the fingertip of iPhone and iPad users.
Unicoi Systems, providers of Fusion Embedded[TM] solutions, announces full support for Micrium’s µC/OS-III real-time operating system (RTOS). Fusion Embedded software is now fully ported to µC/OS-III, granting developers some of the industry’s most prolific and advanced embedded firmware solutions, empowered by expansive chip support from one of the most pervasive and reliable real-time operating systems on the market.
LynuxWorks[TM], Inc., a world leader in the embedded software market, announced that its LynxSecure separation kernel was independently tested with a series of performance tests at The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL), to help assess the use of separation kernels for future real-time, mission-critical systems.
Continuing its focus on ARM-based processors, Quadros Systems, Inc., a leading provider of real-time operating systems (RTOS), announced support for the Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) OMAP[tm] 3 platform, which features an ARM Cortex-A8 architecture from ARM Ltd. Developers can now combine the efficiency and scalability of RTXC software family with the performance and energy efficiency of OMAP35x processors.
