An Electronicstalk guide
Start with the news release PCI mezzanine card targets the space industry from Aitech Defense Systems, which we summarised at the time by saying "Aitech Defense Systems is offering the S750, said to be the space industry's first COTS, radiation-tolerant, Layer 2 Gigabit Ethernet switch PCI mezzanine card (PMC).". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Control system enables smooth motor movements from ST Microelectronics: "ST Microelectronics has developed a complete motor-control system on a chip for equipment such as security cameras, cash dispensers, ticketing machines, stage lighting, printers and vending machines.".
In November 2010, we covered the news from Impulse Accelerated Technologies - take a look at C-to-FPGA compiler supports Pico M-series modules which says: "Impulse Accelerated Technologies' C-to-FPGA compiler is to be extended to support Pico Computing's M-series modules, for applications in security and bioinformatics.".
Take a look also at the news release from Atmel, Industrial control MCUs have floating point unit, as well as Software development tools enable DSP programming from Texas Instruments, and Digital PFC controllers for energy-related markets from Avnet Memec.
