30 Sep 14. Tech Source, Inc., an independent supplier of high performance embedded video, graphics, and high end computing solutions, has introduced its ultra-low power, rugged Condor VC102x XMC H.264 compression and raw video capture card. The card provides a novel solution to the video relay bandwidth hurdles and latency issues experienced by developers of manned and unmanned avionics solutions and other military and industrial video streaming applications. The Condor VC102x features two H.264 encoders on board and two dedicated Ethernet outputs, acting as a frame grabber as well as an H.264 encoder. As a result, the card can be configured to provide raw video (1080p at 30 frames per second) to a local host for real time viewing and image analysis while simultaneously sending an encoded stream to the on board Ethernet ports for transmission to a remote location using real-time transport protocol (RTP). The Condor VC102x is a high definition (HD) or standard definition (SD) card that features an H.264 video encoder with baseline, main, and high profile support up to Level 4.1. H.264 encoding is performed in hardware to minimize CPU usage. There are two main variants of the card – one that supports two SD/HD-SDI video inputs and one that supports two composite video (TV) inputs. Condor VC102x is available in various ruggedized levels and has conduction or convection cooled variants. While Windows 7 or Linux drivers are available by default, other real time operating systems (RTOS) such as VxWorks, Integrity, and LynxOS may be optionally supported on both X86 and PowerPC platforms.
30 Sep 14. Amphenol Aerospace now offers Copper-to-Copper (CTC) and Copper-to-Fiber (CTF) Ethernet Media & Interface Conversion with Switching. These completely sealed and rugged integrated electronic Ethernet devices are designed for harsh environment applications. Amphenol Aerospace has a long history of providing rugged high-speed copper and fiber optic interconnect products for the military, aerospace, and industrial markets. Such products include: fiber optic termini, high-speed copper contacts, connectors, electronics, and cabling solutions. Amphenol’s Ethernet Media & Interface converters with switching combine our expertise in fiber optics, high speed copper, and electronics packaging to create a new addition to our Integrated Electronic Product Line. The CTC/CTF Ethernet Switched Products are designed around 1G and 10G Ethernet and provide the following features fully integrated at the connector interface:
* Up to eight channels of 1G and four channels of 10G
* For copper based products for 1000Base-T and 10GBase-T, integrated physical interface conversion and embedded magnetic transformers
* For fiber optic based products, integrated fiber to copper and copper to fiber transceivers for single and multi-mode applications
* For both copper and fiber optic solutions, option for fully integrated Ethernet switch with Layer-3 routing.
Customers now can design their subsystems around Amphenol Ethernet Interface Products and remove complexity from their sub-systems. Amphenol Ethernet Interface Products provide sub-system to system translation (and vice-versa) and direct interfaces from off-the-shell CPUs and FPGAs. The decrease in complexity reduces risk to development programs, lowers cost, and enables customers to bring their products to market quicker. (Source: Yahoo!/PRNewswire)
