Powerful graphics in squared form factor

first_imgAMD graphics technology is entering the eNUC world: manufactured entirely in Germany, the embedded eNUC board from Datakamp features rugged multimedia capabilities and long-term availability. Figure 1. The all-in-one eN-GXSOC has been designed and developed for 24/7 use in harsh industrial environments and utilizes an innovative passive cooling system. By Wolfgang Kamp, Datakamp                   Download PDF version of this article Commercial NUC systems are nice little products that can reside on office desktops or in private TV racks without requiring much space. They offer customers all the performance and connectivity they need for internet browsing, media streaming, office applications, home automation and so on. Adapted to the embedded world, the standardized embedded NUC (eNUC) form factor also offers a freely programmable platform for developing smart IoT gateways and manifold other embedded control systems and industrial thin clients that demand a powerful small form factor and high cost efficiency.Applications built on eNUC benefit from the standardization of the form factor and this offers various advantages. Support by various board manufactures offers the freedom to choose the best solution. Long-term availability is guaranteed, this ensures that design efforts are secured. Engineers can expect system designs to have the same interfaces because a dedicated set of interfaces is part of the specification. A broad ecosystem of accessories ranging from heat spreaders to cablings and housings makes it easy to purchase components from third parties so that own NRE costs are reduced to the max. As a derivate of a commercial standard, it can deliver lowest component costs for the embedded industries because there is often an option available that is manufactured in commercial mass production. The fact that a larger community of designers is working with the form factor ensures continuous improvements of the standard. The vendor independent standardization body SGET e.V. helps the community to withstand against proprietary solutions.These standardization benefits make the eNUC form factor very attractive for many low-power small form factor applications in various embedded and industrial markets for which abundant interface options are provided. The eNUC Type 2 interface is specified for connectivity intensive systems and includes interfaces such as 2x LAN, 2x USB, 1x mini PCI Express and/or mSATA expansion, 2x UART or COM ports and external single power connector as mandatory. Other recommended features include 1x video out (i.e. HDMI, DP, RGB, LVDS internal or external) as well as 1x SATA, 2x additional USB, 1x SD/mSD socket, 1x audio and a minimum product lifetime of 5 years plus support of extended temperature ranges. With all these interfaces packed on a footprint measuring only 4 x 4 inches or 101.6 x 101.6mm, an eNUC board can serve many different applications directly off the shelf, making this rugged form factor instantly field deployable.One of the latest new designs based on this attractive form factor is the eN-GXSOC from Datakamp with the second generation AMD Embedded G-Series SoC (System-on-Chip). Application areas for this board are small form factor systems in multimedia, infotainment and point of sale as well as medical, industrial automation and control. What makes this board so appealing? It is the AMD accelerated processing unit that provides impressive graphics capabilities combined with scalability and flexibility in cost, performance and power. It is also the first real x86 SoC which takes architecture improvements one step further and integrates the I/O controller on the same chip as the APU, making it the ideal fit for applications requiring ultra-low power and small form factor processors – so it seems designed for the eNUC world.Figure 2. Despite the small form factor, the eNUC eN-GXSOC PC offers a comprehensive set of I/Os. The second generation G-Series SoC (code name Steppe Eagle) that is now becoming available with the new eNUC boards expands upon the capabilities of the AMD embedded G-Series SoC platform, bringing scalable performance, power and price across CPU, GPU, multimedia and I/O controller hardware, lowering integration effort for more cost-efficient designs. Together, the new G-Series processors deliver immersive, graphically rich experiences across a broad range of applications, from entry-level to mainstream gaming, digital signage, imaging, and industrial control. With this processor Datakamp has developed a 4 x 4 inches multimedia engine that supports all features required for graphics intensive applications. Even support for the LED backlight power for the LCD is realized as a modular option. The board further supports embedded DisplayPort via I-PEX for display connectivity, making it highly flexible in terms of supported displays.Depending on the required performance, the boards are highly scalable from the dual-core GX-212JC with 6W up to the quad-core GX-412HC with 7W thermal design power (TDP), transforming them into high-performance, low-power SoC designs with integrated powerful graphics core. They provide the appropriate performance for playing video material in 4K resolution. Even a color depth of 10 bit can easily be activated in the operating system graphics card driver (catalyst). The integrated Radeon graphics supports two independent displays. The connection is established via DisplayPort++, eDP on I-PEX or mDP++ and dual-channel 24-bit LVDS. For generic expansions and IoT connectivity the system offers 2 x USB 3.0, 4x USB 2.0, an internal mini PCIe slot as well as 1x Gigabit Ethernet. Storage media can be connected via 1x mSATA and 1x SATA. Besides the standard RS232 port, an extension board offers the option to add 4x RS232 as well as CAN bus. High Definition Audio rounds off the feature set. According to the eNUC specification, the eN-GXSOC provides a single power connector for a wide-range power supply from 12 to 36 VDC.The all-in-one eNUC board has been designed and developed for 24/7 use in harsh industrial environments. It utilizes an innovative passive cooling system that transfers the thermal power directly to the housing and ensures real long lifecycles of the board and the overall system. Reliable and fast SSD mass storage in the form of mSATA or eMMC devices also avoids any moving parts in the system. The RAM memory is furthermore soldered directly to the SBC, increasing shock and vibration resistance and making it even suitable for in-vehicle applications. Supported operating systems include Microsoft Windows and Linux, especially embedded YOCTO Linux.As the eN-GXSOC is entirely manufactured in Germany, customers can rely on high quality production including tests of each single unit, ensuring that massive field deployments can be executed without any trouble due to board failures. Its EMS partner Ihlemann AG guarantees high-end quality printed circuit board assembly. The board is available as a commercial off-the-shelf product or in tailor-made variants in line with customer special requirements. The development and engineering of hard- and software components can be drawn on as an individual performance or as a project.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules Continue Reading Previous TI: 1-A DC/DC step-down power modules feature tiny MicroSiP packagingNext New oscilloscopes address expanding development needslast_img read more

Japanese Twitter Users Debate Merits and Pitfalls of Sexy Light Novel Cover

first_imgPerhaps one of the most tired debates on the internet is whether something is “too sexy” or not. Adults don’t need their content policed based on what one person finds objectionable, I’ve always said, so I hate the thought that someone’s hurt feelings might result in my sexy products toned down.One product that relies on sexy content is the Japanese light novel, which includes a selection of stories that get turned into anime series, accompany them, or exist on their own as a selection of science fiction and fantasy stories. There’s usually a lot of anime covers as a result and plenty of illustrations. Unsurprisingly, many of these illustrations are sexy, or downright racy.One Japanese Twitter user took issue with this.The tweet states, translated by SoraNews24:“I was at the bookstore with my daughter today, and I saw her make a completely unpleasant face. ‘Dad, this is gross…’ she said while pointing at the scenery in my photo. I can imagine how disgusting it must be to have the body of your gender drawn in such a strangely exaggerated sexual manner, for it to be treated as a single-minded tool for sexual gratification, and I once again felt that having it displayed openly in a place where kids can see it is almost tantamount to violence.”Other Twitter users chimed in to agree, many stating that light novel coves “go too far” and that they don’t understand why the covers need “exaggerated breasts” and whatnot. There were also those who defended the novels, stating that “if you can’t approve of the covers, then please take the responsibility to teach your kids not to browse the light novel section.” Another user commented that she was a woman and that she “enjoys” reading the sexy light novels.The debate raged on and continues to between Japanese readers. The topic boils down to this: If you don’t like it, don’t read it. There’s no harm in these products existing, and it’s time to stop acting like it’s some sort of assault on decency. That’s where I stand, anyway – how about you?Japanese culture is intriguing and unique, that’s why we cover it! It’s a great country where you can get a canned soda with alcohol, see a real-life transformer, and make your own decadent Kit Kat at a vending machine.

Pakistan court grants prearrest bail to 2008 Mumbai attacks mastermind Hafiz Saeed

first_imgHafiz Saeed, leader of terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba.ReutersAn anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore on Monday granted pre-arrest bail to Mumbai terror attacks mastermind and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed and three others in a case pertaining to the banned outfit’s alleged illegal use of land for its seminary.Besides Saeed, interim bail was granted to Hafiz Masood, Ameer Hamza and Malik Zafar, until August 31 against surety bonds of 50,000 Pakistani rupees each, reports Dawn.During the hearing, the legal counsel of the accused insisted that JuD was not using any piece of land illegally and urged the court to accept bail pleas.Meanwhile, the Lahore High Court (LHC) issued notices to the federal government, the Punjab government and the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) regarding a petition filed by Saeed and his seven aides, challenging a case carrying a charge of terror financing lodged by the CTD.A two-member bench of the LHC asked the parties to submit their replies within two weeks.A lawyer for the federal government objected to the notices, arguing that the petition was non-maintainable. The bench, however, dismissed the objection and adjourned proceedings until July 30, Dawn reported.According to the joint petition submitted earlier in July, the JuD leaders submitted that the facts, narrated in the impugned FIR lodged on July 1, illegally described them as members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terror group and levelled unlawful allegation of terror financing.Prior to this on July 3, top 13 leaders of the banned JuD, including Saeed and Naib Emir Abdul Rehman Makki, were booked in nearly two dozen cases for terror financing and money laundering under the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.last_img read more

Supreme Court upholds IBC rule that gives home buyers status of financial

first_imgSupreme CourtReutersIn a big boost for the rights of home buyers, the Supreme Court has ruled that they hold the status of financial creditors. The landmark ruling, which upholds an amendment in the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, means that home buyers will get preference when dues are recovered from bankrupt real estate companies. Home buyers will enjoy the status of banks and institutional creditors and can take real estate companies into bankruptcy proceedings.A bench headed by Justice RF Nariman dismissed pleas of over 200 real estate companies to amend IBC (Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code). The amendment focuses on the rights of home buyers who contribute equally in financing the real estate projects. The amended order also ensures the buyers can acquire a seat at the Committee of Creditors.   Real EstateThe builders had challenged the IBC amendment citing that it would result in duplication as the homebuyers have already RERA to their rescue.The apex court clarified that homebuyers pay large amounts to the companies which in turn become the principal for building the project. The order says that long delay in the delivery of possession will have a drastic impact on the homebuyers. The order added that banks are in a strong position under the code as they are financial creditors even though the maximum investments in real estate come from the home buyers.last_img read more

DC Police Fatally Shoot Md Motorcyclist

first_imgThe Metropolitan Police Department’s Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating an officer-involved shooting that left one Maryland man dead after he crashed his motorcycle into a police car on Sept.11.Around 4:30 a.m., Terrence Sterling, who resided in Fort Washington, Md., was seen driving erratically near the 1700 block of U Street NW by a police officer. Moments later at the corner of 3rd Street and M Street, NW Sterling, 31, was seen driving recklessly by another officer. The police officer tried to exit the squad car in attempts of stopping the motorcycle, but Sterling allegedly rammed his motorcycle into door of the car where the officer was exiting. The officer shot Sterling and he later died at a local hospital, according to police reports.Assistant Police Chief Peter Newsham gave a similar account of the incident in a video on Twitter a few hours after the shooting.Newsham said the police officers were able to stop the motorcycle about a block North of New York Avenue as Sterling tried to flee and struck the police car. At that point shots were fired. “Fortunately we do have some witnesses who are out here cooperating with us,” Newsham said in reference to piecing together the events of the shooting.At least one of the witnesses of the fatal scene has a different description of the shooting.One witness recorded the incident on his cell phone. “They just shot this dude,” the witness said in the video that shows Sterling lying on the ground on the side of the marked police car, while the two officers involved try to give the victim medical assistance.“The victim hits the police car just enough to put a small dent in it. It didn’t damage the bike and then once he hit the car pop, pop pop,” the witness told a local news station. “I duck down I got back up and I see the guy on his bike just fall.”The officers involved in the incident have been placed on administrative leave.The police told the AFRO that there have been eight officer involved shootings as of Sept. 13.last_img read more
