NANO-GLX- IEI’S LOW TDP SBC DESIGNED FOR IOT APPLICATIONS

IEI is rejuvenating the G-Series with a 165 x 115mm EPIC form factor SBC named the Nano-GLX, which runs on the dual-core G-Series LX and has TDP ratings as low as 4.5W. This is the latest, and the most power efficient of the G-Series family. This is the pioneer G-Series based EPIC board. OS support is not listed, but possibly Linux and Windows can both run fine on it. The board is aimed at power efficient e ...

MICROCHIP’S NEW OPEN SOURCE SAMA5D27 SOM MODULE RUNS MAINLINE LINUX

American microcontroller manufacturer company Microchip has unveiled an open source, mainline Linux ready “SAMA5D27 SOM” module. This module is based on a SiP implementation of its Cortex-A5-based SAMA5D27 SoC with 128MB RAM. The 40 x 38mm module is also compatible with a SOM1-EK1 dev board. The SAMA5D27 SOM is Microchip’s first computer-on-module based on a Linux-ready application processor, and the first ...

TESTING THE TPS61092 BOOST CONVERTER

For my current project I searched for a good boost power converter which is able to deliver continuous 400mA power for various sensors. There are an endless number of good boost converters around, but not many can be hand soldered to a board. I would really like to see some like the TPS61092 with SOIC or similar packages. The biggest problem seems to be the heat transport, why most chips have to be mounted ...

MEMS technology shrinks loudspeakers

Miniature MEMS-based speakers could revolutionize speech and music reproduction in mobile communication devices. They combine the advantages of a large frequency bandwidth and high acoustic quality with the ability to generate very high sound levels. Nevertheless, they are so tiny that they can be integrated into headphones. Such micro-loudspeakers were developed by the Fraunhofer Institutes for Digital Med ...

HIFIVE UNLEASHED – THE FIRST RISC-V-BASED LINUX DEVELOPMENT BOARD

RISC-V is an open specification of an Instruction Set Architecture (ISA). That is, it describes the way in which software talks to an underlying processor – just like the x86 ISA for Intel/AMD processors and the ARM ISA for ARMprocessors. Unlike those, however, the RISC-V ISA is open so that anyone can build a processor that supports it. Just as Linux revolutionize the software world, RISC-V could create a ...

Panasonic PAN9420 is a standalone fully embedded Wi-Fi Module

Building an Internet of Things infrastructure most times depends upon the wireless connectivity, but there are many options for wireless and not every device is IP addressable – a requisite feature for IoT. There are many wireless interface options, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), ZigBee, Z-Wave, Lora, RFID and Satellite, each with their own unique balance of power, range, data rates, mesh networking, in ...

INSIDE INTEL’S FIRST PRODUCT: THE 3101 RAM CHIP HELD JUST 64 BITS

Intel's first product was not a processor, but a memory chip: the 31011 RAM chip, released in April 1969. This chip held just 64 bits of data (equivalent to 8 letters or 16 digits) and had the steep price tag of $99.50.2 The chip's capacity was way too small to replace core memory, the dominant storage technology at the time, which stored bits in tiny magnetized ferrite cores. However, the 3101 performed at ...

Inside the vintage 74181 ALU chip: how it works and why it’s so strange

The 74181 ALU (arithmetic/logic unit) chip powered many of the minicomputers of the 1970s: it provided fast 4-bit arithmetic and logic functions, and could be combined to handle larger words, making it a key part of many CPUs. But if you look at the chip more closely, there are a few mysteries. It implements addition, subtraction, and the Boolean functions you'd expect, but why does it provide several bizar ...
