Radiometer offers flat response
PB300-BB photodiode-based detector head provides a flat spectral response from 400 to 1000 nm, making it suitable for power measurement of broadband light sources. The photodetector measures from 50 pW to 8 mW of power. The 10 × 10-mm aperture has a response time of 0.2 s and low noise level of ±2 pW. It is fully compatible with the company's Orion, Nova, and Laserstar displays.

Camera faces elements
MotionXtra HG-100K network-based, high-speed digital camera is designed for extreme events in harsh environments. The system consists of the camera, MotionCentral software, and an optional Hub Sync Unit that functions as an industrialized Gigabit Ethernet hub. The camera can take physical forces of up to 100 g and is capable of capturing 1000 frames/s at 1504 × 1128 pixels; frame rates of 100,000 frames/s are available at reduced resolutions. A 5-µs electronic shutter accurately records high-speed events.

Camera measures displays
Mobile LumiCam 1300 imaging photometer and colorimeter tests the visual appearance of displays, display systems, or panel graphics. Luminance and color display metrology can be conducted in the lab or field using a 1.3 million-pixel CCD sensor, which has a photometric range of 0.01 to 200,000 cd/m2. Pixel resolution of 50 µm is possible using standard 50-mm objective lens. A battery pack enables independent operation for up to 6 h. The portable version of the LumiCam provides measuring accuracies of ±4% for luminance.
Board support extended
VxWorks Board Support Package (BSP) has been extended to a third product, the Bobcat PC/104-Plus single-board computer. The BSP supports the Bobcat Flash BIOS with OEM enhancements and I/O options. The BSP is designed to be installed with Wind River's Tornado 2.2.1 integrated development environment running under Windows.

Frame grabber integrates color
PicPort-Pro-CL-Stereo-RTF and PCI-based frame grabber, based on FPGA technology, integrates a real-time color decoder for Bayer-pattern color cameras. The frame grabber acquires images from one Base/Medium or two Base Camera Link cameras; in dual-camera configuration, the board accepts cameras of different types in synchronous or asynchronous acquisition mode. A 32-Mbyte advanced frame buffer delivers more than 700-Mbytes/s bandwidth. The Leutron Development Suite can be used to develop software for the frame grabber.

Switch simplifies connections
PMCE3R, a rugged, compact Ethernet switch, enables system designers to build Ethernet switching directly into their systems. This new PMC mezzanine is an eight-port 10/100-Mbit/s Ethernet switch with a gigabit uplink port. It includes PMC network interface cards for VME and CompactPCI platforms and air- and conduction-cooled Gigabit Ethernet switches. The PMCE3R is available in five build levels and is qualified for operation between –40°C and +85°C. The eight 10/100BASE-TX ports and one 1000Base-T port provide external connections.
Computing node cuts power
PowerNode3, a single/dual 1-GHz PowerPC G4 high-end computing node, features enhanced connectivity and power consumption of 30 W for applications requiring real-time data and signal processing. An ALMA2e VME-PCI bridge enables 2eSST data transfers at up to 180 Mbytes/s for VME board interconnection. Dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and four asynchronous RS232/422/485 lines provide connectivity options. The LVDS standard is also supported. Dual and single Motorola PowerPC 7457 ..processors run at 1 GHz. The board provides twin PCI mezzanine card slots: one 64-bit/66 MHz and one 32-bit/33 MHz.
