SEGGER’s Professional Embedded Graphics Package Now Freely Available To NXP Customers

The high performance emWin embedded graphics library developed by SEGGER Microcontroller is now offered by NXP Semiconductors in library form for free commercial use with NXP ARM 7/9 and Cortex-M microcontrollers. The software bundle offered by NXP includes the emWin Color basic package, the Window Manager/Widgets module including the new GUIBuilder, the Memory Devices module for flicker-free animation, the Antialiasing module for smooth display of curves, lines and fonts, the Font Converter and the VNC Server.

SEGGER will further support this offer from NXP and aid NXP’s customers by providing a source code upgrade to the emWin Pro Bundle.

emWin is designed to provide an efficient, processor and LCD controller independent graphical user interface (GUI) for any application that operates with a graphical LCD. It is compatible with single-task and multitask environments, with a proprietary operating system or with any commercial RTOS. It may be adapted to any size physical and virtual display with any LCD controller and CPU.

emWin is perfectly complemented by SEGGER’s RTOS and middleware for embedded systems. All SEGGER software products follow strict yet efficient coding standards. These standards allow SEGGER to create high quality code optimized for high performance and very low resource usage. The RTOS embOS is one of the smallest real-time kernels in the market offered with non-intrusive profiling tools. The file system emFile adds fail-safe support for different flash storage medias like SD and other memory cards, NOR and NAND memories. The drivers for NOR and NAND flash memories support wear leveling. The IP stack embOS/IP is one of the fastest IP-stacks in the market while still maintaining a very small footprint. The USB-stacks emUSB-Device and emUSB-Host add further flexibility to any embedded system.

“We congratulate NXP to their decision to offer a professional graphics package to the LPCware community. This confirms our view, that emWin is the leading graphics package in the embedded market. We want to further support their customers by offering an easy and discounted upgrade path to the full Source Code version of emWin”, says Shane Titus, director of SEGGER’s US operations.

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.

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…
