Sensors Expo was held in San Jose from June 26 to 28, 2018. It was great to see a trade show with growing attendance and enthusiasm. Regardless of the type of sensor vendor on display, the trend to connect sensor technologies was widespread. Featured were wireless innovations, an embedded system area, a university showcase, and even clever end solutions such as the sensor-laden mattress, which we all admired longingly after being on our feet all day.
MicroTCA is a highly versatile backplane-based architecture that is utilized in a wide variety of applications. With a high-speed connector, compact size, hot-swappability, and 99.9999 percent achievable uptime, it's a powerful architecture. Particularly in military/aerospace and physics applications, end users are asking for solutions to make the architecture faster, handle more power, provide more I/O, and meet other demands of the environment. The MicroTCA/AMC vendors are stepping up to meet these requirements.
