CodeSourcery GNU Compilers and Eclipse IDE Now Compatible with Signum’s JTAGjet™ Emulators

Embedded Systems Conference – Signum Systems Corporation announced today a new compiler and debugging environment for users of their JTAGjet emulators. Driven by the increased popularity of the ARM processors and a need for lower-cost, professional grade tools, Signum’s JTAGjet emulators are now compatible with CodeSourcery’s Sourcery G++™, a high value professional software development tool suite for embedded C and C++ developers. JTAGjet together with Sourcery G++ provides a complete and versatile set of software and hardware tools for any ARM™ based embedded development project.

Current CodeSourcery users will gain the added advantages of emulation support for high-end processors like ARM11™, MPCore™, Cortex™-A8 and Cortex™-A9 including Freescale’s i.MX and Texas Instruments Sitara™, DaVinci™, OMAP™ 3 and OMAP-DM processor families. JTAGjet emulators also provide extremely fast, on-chip and off-chip Flash programming, ETM and ETB application tracing and an excellent Chameleon Debugger™ for "bare-metal" systems as well as embedded Linux projects.

Signum’s JTAGjet emulators used with Sourcery G++ will benefit from Eclipse based IDE, project management, better optimized GNU C and C++ compilers, powerful inline assembly, an extensive list of predefined processors, and improved reliability. The Eclipse IDE provides a fully visual environment for developing applications, including an automated project builder, syntax-highlighting editor, and a graphical debugging interface. An instruction set simulator is also included.

Signum Systems and CodeSourcery are committed to the highest standards of customer service. JTAGjet and Sourcery G++ Professional and Standard Editions include direct access to their expert developers eliminating any tool related frustrations and improving the time to market.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
