CompactPCI Serial reaches out into space
Recently, the U.S.-based Internet service provider OneWeb ordered 900 satellites to provide additional global broadband. Knowing that this volume is more than half of the total 1,400 satellites already in orbit, and knowing that the cost for sending one into space is about $100 million, the industry needs to start thinking about new technologies that could help manage the mass of satellites that must be produced every year.
PICMG: A CTO's perspective
In the current environment of "open source everything," is there still a role for PICMG and open specifications? Doug Sandy, vice president of technology and CTO for PICMG, explores the past and future of PICMG within the emerging industry landscape.
SHB Express still going strong - PICMG 1.3 application examples
PICMG got its start back in 1994 with the development of the first edge card computing industry standard: PICMG 1.0. Since then edge card computing has evolved to incorporate the latest PCI Express interface methodology and implementation standards in the SHB Express or PICMG 1.3 industry standard.
PICMG standards adoption growing in Asia, Europe with COM Express leading the way
Leaders of PICMG say that their standards continue to grow in adoption across the globe, with COM Express making huge inroads in Asia and Internet of Things (IoT) markets while CompactPCI Serial grows in acceptance in Europe.
2017 marks significant changes for PICMG
Last year ended with the loss of Joe Pavlat, who successfully led this organization for over 20 years. He worked with members to establish PICMG as a global leader in open standards for embedded computing. We are grateful for his service and will continue to build and improve the organization he helped found.
DIC551 - a Golden Key to Open the Doors of the CompactPCI Serial World
Many equipment manufacturers, who want to meet the requirements of the modern technical level, consider the CompactPCI Serial standard a rather attractive solution. However, generally there are at least two obstacles for that: necessity to implement the "inherited" interfaces and to develop proprietary modules that fulfill unique functions. In order to meet these conditions the manufacturers previously had to develop the CompactPCI Serial module starting "from the scratch", which was impossible for the most domestic manufacturers. Now, these conditions are successfully met by Fastwel DIC551.
Enhance cooling on COM Express Type 7 server-on-modules
The processing demands in carrier-grade telecommunication infrastructures, server farms, and distributed Internet of Things (IoT) edge and fog server applications are increasing rapidly. The level of processing now needed is driving the development of a new generation of modular servers that are more powerful but smaller, and integrate more cores but consume less power per core.

PICMG is a nonprofit consortium of companies and organizations that collaboratively develop open standards for high-performance telecommunications, military, industrial, and general-purpose embedded computing applications.
Faster Development of Safe, Smart Railway Solutions with SIL Level COTS Components
In the coming years, the digitalization of the rail industry will be the dominant task for train and track operators as well as for the OEMs and automation vendors that supply them. The aim is to make rail transport safer, more efficient and customer-friendly.
Keysight Technologies' New PXIe Chassis Help Engineers Make Best Price/Performance Choices for PXI Application Requirements
Three new PXIe chassis, ranging from low-cost to high-performance, enable a broad range of applications in R&D and manufacturing. Highlights: - PXIe 10-slot chassis for benchtop R&D and design validation applications, with industry-leading low fan noise, DC power and Gen 3 performance - PXIe 5-slot chassis for low-cost desktop and portable applications - PXIe 18-slot chassis for large system applications, with cost-effective Gen 2 performance, and improved power supply and system integration features
Design of Embedded Single Board Computer Power Supply
Embedded operating speed is high, the system is more complex, often integrated ultra-large-scale FPGA devices, DSP devices, DDR memory and a variety of interface circuits. This puts higher demands on the output voltage, power, voltage accuracy, power-up sequence, and power integrity of the power supply. Here is a CPCI-based embedded single-board computer power supply design. The design is mainly used in aviation equipment and military vehicle equipment.
