ARM launches DS-5 Development Tools for ARM Linux-based Systems

ARM [(LSE: ARM); (Nasdaq: ARMH)] today announced, at the Embedded World conference in Nurnberg, Germany, the launch of the Keil™ Development Studio 5 (DS-5) Application Edition. DS-5 is a software development tool suite which simplifies the development of Linux and Android native applications for ARM® processor-based systems, reducing the learning curve and shortening the development and testing cycle.

DS-5 Application Edition features an Eclipse-based project manager with support for multiple workspaces and projects, and powerful C/C++ and assembler code editing functions. It also includes a fully featured Linux application debugger with detailed graphical views and processor control mechanisms, and a fast model of an ARM Cortex™-A8 processor-based SoC for rapid ARM Linux development without the need for any hardware target.

DS-5 is preconfigured to support popular development boards including the OMAP35x processor-based BeagleBoard and Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) OMAP35x evaluation module. DS-5 automates downloading applications and libraries to the target's file system, starting them and connecting the debugger, which enables developers to focus their effort on analyzing and fixing their code. DS-5 Application Edition also includes two Linux example projects, the Gnometris application and the Libgames-support shared library.

"The industry-standard Eclipse design environment enables the integration of plug-ins from several tool vendors into a single framework. Eclipse-based tools such as DS-5 help us be more efficient when developing software for our multi-architecture automotive devices," said Carol de Vries, R&D manager automotive, NXP. "We gladly continue to collaborate with ARM by providing valuable use cases, requirements and feedback on their development tools".

"With development platforms ranging from the low-cost BeagleBoard to the full OMAP35x EVM, open source enthusiasts can harness the capabilities of the DS-5 Application Edition to start designing inventive ARM Linux systems easier and faster," said Jason Kridner, open platforms principal architect, TI.

"ARM is committed to providing our Partners with the tools required to easily and rapidly develop optimized ARM processor-based products," said John Cornish, EVP and GM, System Design Division, ARM. "DS-5 represents a significant addition to our Keil tools portfolio and has been designed specifically for developers wishing to develop Linux applications for ARM processor-based systems."

DS-5 Application Edition is the first of three planned DS-5 editions. It supports Linux and Android native application development with a GNU compiler optimized for ARM Linux and an Ethernet or serial connection to the target. Future editions will include kernel and driver debug and trace, and the highly optimizing ARM Compiler.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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…
