New Products OEMs PCI The PCI-8134 is a four-access stepper and ervo motion control card. It's designed for harsh industrial environ- me nts and provides high pulse (2.4MHz) motion control of X-Y tables, roboti cs, conveyors, pick-and- place equipment, electronic and semi- onductor test equipment, mate rial handlers, textile machinery, and pal- letizers. This PCI-8134-based motion control card features pulse train for both stepping and AC/ DC motors, with pulse rates up to 2.4Mbps. The PCI-8134 motion control ASIC enables u·aj ectory planning. Both the accelera- tion and deceleration times are pro- grammable, and the F-curve profil e smoothes motion during starting and stopping. Various operation modes are built in . These include continuous motion, absolute move, relative move, manual pulsing, simul taneous move, speed change on the fl y, linear inter- polation, and home return . The PCI- 8134 is available now for $1,254. It costs $999 each in quanti ties of 10. ADLINK Technology Irving, CA (949) 250·3339 Graphics system The Graphics Mas ter is a IUSC-based sys tem with a USB Mas te r and com- pact fl as h. It include an on-board four-port USB hub, a U B down- stream powe r switch, and a USB slave/ USB bus maste r. A second capabili ty of th e Graphics Ma te r is its compact fl ash inte rface connec- to r, whi ch extends th e exi sting fl ash memory optio ns of 8MB, 16MB, o r 32MB fl ash, and compleme nts th e 16MB and 32MB SDRAM running at 103MHz. The PCMCIA slo t is subse- que ntly availabl e fo r device cards with such features as 802.11 or IDE. In addition to th e USB Maste r and compact fl ash, the Graphics Mas ter ex tends th e se rial por t from three to seven (with IrDA, RS-232, TTL, and RS-485 options), and comple- me nts Applied Data Systems' l/0 suite: a Con t roll e r Area (CAN) Bus, PCMCIA, etwo rk 10Base-T Eth ern et, and a re-configura bl e SMART I / 0 package th a t selects from 32 di gital l/Os, 12 analog inputs, an 8 x 8 keypad, and two PWMs. T he embedded Graphics Mas ter is compa tibl e with an array of o pe ra tin g systems, including WindowsCE, Microware OS-9, and WindRive r VxWorks. I t also supports JAVA with an RTOS. The Graphics Mas ter employ high-end graphics, with multipl e high speed analog, COMMUNICATIONS DESIGN CONFERENCE Are you a Communications Design Expert?
