Low-Cost Cortex-M3 Emulator with Real-Time Trace

Signum Systems Corp., a debug and emulation tool company today announced a JTAGjet-Trace-CM3 emulator that provides development and debugging support with real-time trace for Cortex-M3 based microcontrollers.

Signum Systems’ JTAGjet-Trace-CM3 emulator supports all Cortex-M3 based devices equipped with Embedded Trace Macrocell (ETM). Silicon manufacturers that provide Cortex-M3 based microcontrollers with ETM trace include NXP, ST Micro, Texas Instruments and Toshiba.

The new emulator comes with high-speed (480 Mbps) USB 2.0 port, Chameleon Debugger and a driver for Keil/ARM uVision debugger.

The on-board 4.5 MBytes of trace memory is used to capture and store in real-time the execution path of the Cortex-M3 device to add extra visibility into the executing code and allow tracing of the selected variables.

The trace information may be filtered in real-time to allow only the relevant information to be stored in the trace buffer. Once captured the information may be further filtered to make the process of finding and identifying captured information faster and easier. Connection to target is via a flexible 4-in cable terminated with a high-density, 20-pin connector.

The included Chameleon Debugger for Cortex-M3 is a professional debugger designed specifically for all embedded systems development needs, from low-level driver development and application debugging to system testing and verification. The debugger is compatible with all ARM compilers that produce the ELF files. For added convenience, the emulator seamlessly integrates with Keil uVision3 debugger.

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…

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 power…


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.
