Rabbit Semiconductor Announces the Release of the Rabbit 3000 Microprocessor Reference Design Book for Embedded Systems Design

Rabbit Semiconductor, a division of Z-World Inc., along with Elsevier Science (NYSE: RUK) and Technology Books today announced the publication and release of Embedded Systems Design using the Rabbit 3000 Microprocessor: Interfacing, Networking, and Application Development, the first Rabbit 3000 reference book to focus exclusively on Rabbit's microprocessor use for embedding networks and controls in electronic systems.

The Rabbit 3000 is a popular high-performance microprocessor specifically designed for embedded control, communications, and Ethernet connectivity. Both authors, Kamal Hyder and Bob Perrin, have years of experience in embedded designs. They wrote their new book specifically to help embedded developers get the most out of the Rabbit's powerful feature set. The book provides detailed coverage of the Rabbit architecture and development environment, networking, interfacing, Rabbit assembly language, multitasking, Dynamic C T , and many other related topics.

"It's great to have such experienced hands work on this reference book", stated Norm Rogers, President of Z-World Inc., " they bring their level of experience down to everyone's application needs." Most valuable to designers are the many "insider" tips and techniques presented in the book.

Extensive embedded design examples are supported by fully tested source code, which is provided on the accompanying CD-ROM. Included in the book are several coupons and discount offers for development kits and products via

"This book is essential for anyone working with the Rabbit series of processors, boards, or core modules. The book covers firmware from soup to nuts, from assembly language to C, including real time OSes and even modern networking." --Jack Ganssle

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.
