Space-Saving Solid State Embedded PC Solution With Multiple I/O Ports
APLEX introduced their TITAN Series, a solid state embedded PC solution. The first two models of the TITAN Series are ACS-2310 and ACS-2320. The ACS-2310 is targeted at applications that require ultra-compact size and ultra-low power consumption. At 1" height, it comes standard with a total of 6 USB ports, 3 Serial Ports, 2 RJ-45 LAN Ports and 1 VGA Port. It also has 2 built-in Mini-PCIe slots for further expansion needs of USB, COM and Ethernet ports. Equipped with a Baytrail Celeron N2930 CPU, the dual core CPU provides horsepower while maintaining low heat and low power consumption.
The ACS-2320 is equipped with Haswell i3 / i5 to provide extra computation power for heavy-duty applications. It comes standard with a 6 USB ports, 2 Serial Ports, 2 RJ-45 LAN Ports and 1 VGA Port. It also has 2 built-in Mini-PCIe slots for further expansion needs of USB, COM and Ethernet ports. The tool-free design of the hard drive tray makes upgrades to storage device possible in the field with minimum down-time.
The TITAN Series is designed to be fanless and reliable for industrial environment. It is also designed to be Zero-Maintenance by removing all moving mechanical parts and leverage the reliability and robust shock and vibration characteristic of industrial grade solid state drive (SSD).
A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network
A Comprehensible Guide to Controller Area Network by Wilfried Voss represents the most thoroughly researched and most complete work on CAN available in the marketplace. Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial network technology that was originally designed for the automotive industry, especially for European cars, but has also become a popular bus in industrial automation as well as other applications.
The CAN bus is primarily used in embedded systems, and as its name implies, is a network technology that provides fast communication among microcontrollers up to real-time requirements, eliminating the need for the much more expensive and complex technology of a Dual-Ported RAM. This book provides complete information on all CAN features and aspects combined with a high level of readability. Read more...
