congatec Leverages AMD Embedded R-Series Platform in COM Express Type 6 Module Featuring Unprecedented Graphics

congatec AG, a leading manufacturer of embedded computer modules sets another milestone offering support of the AMD Embedded R-Series platform with the new conga-TFS COM Express module based on Type 6 pinout.

The integration of AMD Embedded R-Series APU expands the COM Express standard with a new module that combines power efficient high-performance x86 processing, unprecedented integrated graphics performance and high performance parallel processing support.

The conga-TFS enables multimedia advancements and an exceptional visual experience across applications.

“We expect AMD Embedded R-Series APUs to be a great addition to our computer-on-module family which will be ideally suited for demanding graphics applications that require lower power consumption,” explained Gerhard Edi, CEO at congatec AG.

congatec currently offers three variants of the AMD R-Series APU on the conga-TFS ranging from the dual-core AMD R-272F APU up to the quad-core AMD R-464L APU.. The conga-TFS uses the AMD A70M Controller Hub to deliver a powerful compact 2-chip solution with support for up to 16GB dual-channel 1600MHz DDR3 memory.

the integrated graphics core supports DirectX ® 11 and OpenGL 4.2 for fast 2D and 3D graphics. The third generation hardware Unified Video Decoder offers seamless processing of H.264, VC-1, MPEG4 Part 2 and MPEG2 video streams. The conga-TFS offers a choice of graphics interfaces including VGA, 18/24bit single/dual channel LVDS as well as three DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 1.4 and two Single link DVI interfaces enabling the direct control of three independent displays.

Software developers can take advantage of APU programmability through proven standards such as Direct Compute (Microsoft) and OpenCLTM. And the portability of OpenCL allows programmers to preserve their expensive source code investment across multiple product generations. OpenCL is a powerful programming environment with which computing tasks can be distributed across a variety of architectures involving a various number of hardware compute units. This is of crucial importance in our customers’ applications that tend to execute a variety of workloads and must do it both cost and power efficiently.

Seven PCI Express 2.0 x1 lanes, PCI Express 2.0 x8 link, four SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, four SATA 6Gb/s ports, one Gigabit Ethernet interface and high definition audio round off the comprehensive range of features.

The congatec board controller provides an extensive embedded PC feature set. The independent x86 processor makes functions such as system monitoring or the I²C bus faster and more reliable, even if the system is in standby mode.

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 E

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs. The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs. Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these p


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.
