Single software platform unifies more than 150 TI processors

Enabling developers to quickly create differentiated products using a single software platform, Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced its Processor software development kit (SDK). The Processor SDK scales across TI's latest Sitara™ processors and digital signal processor (DSP) families, allowing customers to use TI's processor family across diverse sets of end products and offering simplified migration from one device to the next. An intuitive development environment with common graphical navigation, tools and utilities across devices makes it easier for developers to find reference software, tools, documentation and training. Developers can tailor their solution to each unique application with a structured software architecture featuring industry-standard application programming interfaces (APIs), common drivers and frameworks with or without a high-level operating system (OS).

The Processor SDK is built on the foundation of a mainline long-term stable (LTS) Linux® kernel, U-Boot, Yocto Project™-compatible file system and Linaro™ tool chain to supply a robust foundation for faster development optimized for embedded applications. TI has long been an industry leader in supporting Linux and is a top contributor to the Linux kernel. This support of the mainline Linux kernel ensures the availability of the latest, stable features and bug fixes to TI  processors while maintaining compatibility with prior releases.

The Processor SDK also includes application libraries and examples which quickly enable system development using industry standard APIs and frameworks.  For example, support for Khronos OpenCL™ enables easy distribution of tasks to different cores in heterogeneous processors without requiring in-depth knowledge of the different cores.

When a high-level OS isn't necessary, the new Processor SDK also supports TI-RTOS for optimum real-time performance with an efficient open-source kernel deployed in a wide range of embedded applications for more than 20 years. Component driver libraries provide direct access to peripheral and memory interfaces on silicon for performance tuning and system analysis with or without an operating system.

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.

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…
