An Electronicstalk guide
Start with the news release EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor from Altera, which we summarised at the time by saying "The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified a safety-critical avionics system that includes a DO-254/ED-80-certifiable version of Altera's Nios II embedded processor.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release SoC ICs for cable and terrestrial set-top boxes from ST Microelectronics: "STMicroelectronics has unveied the STi7162 and STi5262, two System-on-Chip ICs allowing standard-definition (SD) or high-definition (HD) equipment to share the same printed-circuit-board (PCB) design.".
In December 2010, we covered the news from Mistral Solutions - take a look at Development board for HMI/automotive applications which says: "Mistral Solutions has announced Craneboard, a low-cost ARM-based development board that offers designers a fully open-source printed circuit board (PCB) and design to reduce development costs.".
Take a look also at the news release from Stemmer Imaging, FPGA-based frame grabbers for image acquisition, as well as Connector system for engine control units and more from Molex, and GTK offers customisable 27-colour LCD module from GTK.
