Red Pitaya: ‘Swiss Army PenKnife for engineers’ company to exhibit at embedded world

first_imgRed Pitaya is exhibiting with its German distributor Trenz at embedded world. More than a product, STEMlab is a test and measurement environment that includes a board, an application marketplace and a source code library, all of which foster collaboration and ultimately unleash the inventiveness of users. Users – which vary from small student teams all the way up to large multi-national corporations – have described STEMlab as ‘the Swiss Army PenKnife for engineers’. STEMlab is designed to be a low-cost alternative to many expensive measurement and control instruments and can function as an Oscilloscope, Logic Analyser, Signal Generator, Spectrum Analyzer and much more.STEMlab is based on a dual core ARM Cortex A9 + Xilinx Zynq 7010 FPGA system-on-chip (SoC), which features a dual core processor and FPGA logic, enabling software and hardware programming. This is coupled with very accurate high-end ADCs. Customizable at the FPGA and CPU levels, STEMlab can process real-world signals. Red Pitaya has also thought hard about the design of STEMlab. For instance, the credit-card-sized board features front-end input and output connectors that have a curved design, making it as small as possible and eliminating the need for other adapter boards.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Tools & Software Continue Reading Previous ADLINK supports SGeT’s UIC with XRCE middleware for device-fog-cloud computingNext Phaedrus Systems: Tracealyzer 4 with new user interface and stunning live viewslast_img read more

There is no Oka crisis 20 Kanesatake chief says as land dispute

first_imgMONTREAL — Kanesatake’s grand chief says his people are not heading towards a second Oka crisis despite tensions over a land dispute and a highly publicized war of words with the mayor of the nearby Quebec town.In an open letter published this morning, Serge Simon says that as far as he’s concerned, the current dispute over a developer’s intention to donate a parcel of land to the Mohawk community will not lead to a repeat of the 78-day confrontation that shook the region in 1990.But he says that still doesn’t excuse what he calls the neglect of the federal and provincial governments to settle the questions surrounding land rights, nor the inflammatory comments of Oka Mayor Pascal Quevillon.Quevillon has previously raised concerns that the land donation would lead to his community being encircled by Kanesatake, and voiced fears of illegal dumping and an expansion of cannabis and cigarette merchants.Simon said the mayor’s words are an example of a widespread lack of knowledge that exists about Indigenous history, realities and rights.He called on Quevillon to stop using what he called colonialist language and to instead turn to the future and understand that the interest of his community is in social peace rather than confrontation.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
