09/12/2013 – CAN and CANopen: Interconnecting Embedded Devices to Enable the Internet of Things

A widely adopted real-time serial bus protocol, Controller Area Network (CAN) is to embedded systems as Ethernet is to the Internet, spanning medical, transportation, and aerospace and defense applications. It is now the bus of choice, displacing RS232, RS485, i2c, and other traditional field busses due to its deterministic and real-time network behavior. Higher-level protocols such as CANopen and DeviceNet enable an object-oriented field bus architecture, and SocketCAN creates TCP/IP connectivity over CANbus. The future of CANbus is bright; join Wind River® and OCTRIAN in discovering how CANbus can help your embedded device interconnect at the subsystem level, as well as to the Internet and machine-to-machine networks.

12/12/2013 – Optimizing High-End Embedded Designs with High-Performance Processors

The design of high-end embedded applications is becoming increasingly difficult with the constant demand for higher performance. At the same time, the power budget in many of these applications is fixed or declining, increasing the design challenge. As a result, designers are forced to make tradeoffs and deliver products that fall short of their goals. To address these challenges, Synopsys has developed the DesignWare® ARC® HS Family of embedded processors, which deliver more than 4200 DMIPS (per core) at less than 80 mW, giving designers the performance they need without compromising their power budget.

19/11/2013 – Human Factors and their Impact on Plant Safety

History is full of technology breakthroughs, all striving to increase productivity and efficiency, from the steam engine and the telegraph; we’ve seen technology changing the way we get things done, sometimes in a disruptive way.

Most recently mission critical computing systems have been introduced in manufacturing processes and automated tasks, resulting in increased safety and productivity during normal operation, but can these technologies help keep the plant safe during abnormal process conditions? That’s where technology can support but not replace humans. The industry relies on human ability to respond to the unexpected, to handle the odd conditions and ask the right questions to fix the problems at hand.

Today, when operators are loaded with numerous activities, is it reasonable to expect they’ll be able to respond appropriately to all conditions? What are the human elements that should be taken in to consideration in the design and implementation of modern automation systems? This presentation discusses some of the capabilities available in a modern automation system and how to apply technology to support decision making and help humans handle the abnormal situations in a safe and effective manner.

Questions this presentation answers:

  1. Why do we need humans in Industrial facilities?
  2. What are the advantages in Industrial Automation that can improve the effectiveness of operators?
  3. What are the advantages in Industrial Automation that can improve the safety of plant operations?
  4. What are the human factors we are concerned with in Industrial facilities?

20/11/2013 – How to Enable I2C-bus Communications in Electrically Noisy Environments

NXP Semiconductors has a wide portfolio of I2C-bus buffer devices that enable the bus to be driven over a long distance, run with large capacitive loads, interface with different supply voltage domains, and accommodate hot-swap functions. However, several system designers still face challenges with using I2C-bus in electrically noisy environments such as applications with pumps, fluorescent lights, switching power supplies, solenoids, etc. Another challenging application is one with ground offset between two or more nodes separated by long distance. During this webinar, we will discuss the need for driving the I2C bus over a long distance, challenges encountered in a noisy environment, and proposed solutions for maintaining data integrity in these challenging situations.

20/11/2013 – Automate Multilane Gigabit Oscilloscope Testing with Switch Matrix

Many high-speed digital interfaces are adopting multilane high-speed signals to achieve the required data throughput. They include the PCI Express interface which supports up to 16 lanes operating at 8 GT/s used in graphics processing applications, the HDMI 2.0 interface with 3x lanes at 6 Gb/s for high resolution displays and the MIPI M-PHY interface that scales up to 4 lanes at 5.8304 Gb/s for mobile applications. Validating a multilane interface increases the effort and complexity using an oscilloscope as engineers must manually connect the signals under test into the limited input channels of an oscilloscope. In addition, there are various test conditions – design operating modes, voltage, temperature, etc. that they must test, requiring user intervention to get testing started.

One way to overcome these challenges is to use a microwave switching network that provides automated switching of the signals under test to the oscilloscope. This eliminates reconnection and operator errors, and improves test efficiency, since connecting up all signals will be a one-time effort. A new calibration technique in the oscilloscope can be used to compensate for switch path losses and skew. Test software customization and control are available to cycle through various test conditions to automate device and equipment operation. This webcast will address accurate testing of common multilane interfaces such as PCI Express, HDMI, DisplayPort, MIPI D-PHY, M-PHY and 10GBase-KR using a high-speed oscilloscope.

20/11/2013 – Super Materials – GaN and SiC

GaN is a binary III/V direct bandgap semiconductor with a Wurtzite crystal structure and a wide bandgap of 3.4 eV. It resists cracking and because of its low sensitivity to ionizing radiation, it makes an ideal material for satellite solar-cell arrays.

SiC – which occurs in nature as moissanite – is used in everything from LEDs to car brakes and ceramic plates in bulletproof vests. Silicon carbide is called the “ideal” power semiconductor material for its enabling properties of higher speeds, better thermal characteristics, higher frequency switching with lower losses, and blocking voltages/currents not practical for silicon.

In 10 years, rated voltages for SiC devices (diodes) have increased to the present 1200V /1700V. SiC MOSFETs, introduced two years ago, have achieved 1200V / 1700V ratings, with >50A current per die. SiC power modules are also now available.

In response to the demand for “green” designs, power semiconductor devices based on silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are emerging that can operate far more efficiently than semiconductors made of traditional silicon. Because the underlying technologies are less mature than silicon, characterization is particularly important. Device development and end applications are becoming more demanding, requiring test instruments capable of characterizing significantly higher rated voltages and peak currents.

22/11/2013 – Desenvolva de forma rápida e fácil seu conversor DC-DC e AC-DC para aplicações com LED utilizando os Led Drivers Texas Instruments

Overview: Venha conhecer os novos LED DRIVER DC-DC da Texas, com eficiência acima de 96%, totalmente integrado, minimizando assim os efeitos de EMI e simplificando o layout e BOM de seu projeto. Atualmente os LED DRIVERs Texas, possuem versões com tensão de entrada de até 60Vdc. Dispõem de proteção térmica, open LOAD, UVLO  e curto. Serão apresentados também os conversores AC-DC Buck não isolados para aplicações low cost.

Mostraremos também a ferramenta Power Lab onde, de forma simples e rápida, é possível encontrar inúmeros ref design da TEXAS, aplicações reais com GERBER, esquema, analises térmicas e elétricas. Além disso demonstraremos o WEBENCH, ferramenta para desenvolvimento de seu Led Driver ONLINE.
