Kontron: two new industrial computers based on Raspberry Pi and NXP i.MX6

first_imgKontron announced the availability of two new industrial computers, the KBox A-330-RPI and KBox A-330-MX6, specifically designed for cost-sensitive control and gateway applications. The KBox A-330-RPI is based on the long-term available Raspberry Pi Compute Module CM3+ and can therefore use the huge software pool of the Raspberry Pi community. Equipped with a Broadcom® BCM2837 Quad CoreT Arm® processor, the KBox A-330-RPI is compatible with the established Raspberry Pi standards and has been enhanced with industrial features. It thereby supports developers creating applications for demanding and harsh industrial environments. The new KBox A-330-MX6 differs from the KBox A-330-RPI primarily by the Dual Core i.MX6 processor from NXP, which is, like the Raspberry Pi Compute Module CM3+, long term available. In addition, the variant based on the NXP processor optionally offers additional industrial protocol stacks such as EtherCAT, PROFINET, Modbus and CANopen to enable customers to easily integrate control software.Both KBox A-330 variants operate fanless and are designed for industrial control and gateway tasks in control cabinets due to their slim design and the possibility of DIN rail mounting. Two Fast Ethernet ports, RS232, RS485 or CAN and four I/O ports are available as interfaces. A powerful user interface can be operated during commissioning or in the target application via two USB channels and an HDMI connection. With the KBox A-330 family Kontron offers an industrial grade platform that enables connection to various communication levels, serves as a gateway for IoT applications and can integrate sensors and actuators.As operating system Kontron offers Yocto Linux for the KBox A-330-MX6 and Raspbian for the KBox A-330-RPI. On a project basis, applications are realizable that include advanced security features such as secure authentication and data encryption that go beyond normal security requirements.In conjunction with the modular IoT software framework SUSiEtec from Kontron’s sister company S&T Technologies, any applications and cloud solutions on the market – from sensors to edge computers to private or public clouds – can also be connected and supported to develop IoT applications or establish new business models.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules Continue Reading Previous MEMXPRO: industrial SSDs with Micron durable 3D TLCNext Axiomtek: fanless and ultra-slim 4K digital signage playerlast_img read more

Urban Meyer on Michigan Will we be defined by this game You

The Ohio State football team is just one game away from finishing an undefeated season, and although they are banned from postseason play, OSU coach Urban Meyer said the result of Saturday’s game versus Michigan will not define the season any more than it already would.“Will we be defined by this game? You usually are,” Meyer said Monday in his weekly press conference. “Regardless of what happens, this is the game.”The Buckeyes and Wolverines will meet for the 109th time in the long history of their college football programs Saturday at Ohio Stadium at noon. For the Buckeyes, it will be the final time they take the field this season, as NCAA sanctions from the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal have banned OSU from a bid in the Big Ten Championship game and bowl game.The Buckeyes, though, find themselves with an opportunity to finish the year 12-0.Rather than the bigger picture of clinching an undefeated season with a win, and potentially being in the running for an Associated Press national championship, Meyer said his team is “focused in” on their final opponent.“We just talked about winning this game,” Meyer said. “We’re not talking about what everybody is going to think a week from now, two weeks from now.”Redshirt senior outside linebacker Etienne Sabino said the rivalry with Michigan is all the motivation the Buckeyes need Saturday.“This is the game,” Sabino said. “This is a Super Bowl, this is the bowl game, this is national championship, this is everything for us.”Recognizing performances from Wisconsin winMeyer said senior defensive end John Simon, who he once again called the team’s “heart and soul,” was the team’s defensive player of the week after a four-sack performance against Wisconsin.Five other players were named defensive champions for their Wisconsin performances: redshirt junior safety C.J. Barnett, sophomore outside linebacker Ryan Shazier, junior safety Christian Bryant, redshirt senior Orhian Johnson and senior linebacker Zach Boren.For Boren, it was his first time being named a champion since converting from fullback to linebacker for the seventh game of the season versus Indiana.“I’ve gotten better. I can still get a lot better in a lot of different areas,” Boren said of his progress at linebacker. “I’m getting more and more comfortable.”Meyer called Boren’s conversion this season “one of the great stories … in college football, and certainly in Ohio State history.”“What he’s done, the selfless approach … what he would do for this team is extraordinary,” Meyer said. “Incredible human being and a great game.”Offensively, junior running back Carlos Hyde was named player of the week for his 87-yard, two-touchdown rushing performance, which included the game-winning, 2-yard touchdown in overtime. Two wide receivers, sophomore Evan Spencer and junior Corey Brown, the latter of whom had a 68-yard punt return touchdown on Saturday, were also named offensive champions.As a whole, however, Meyer said the offense “didn’t play very well,” and has to play better against Michigan.“It was bad,” Meyer said. “We have to open this offense up and trust that good things are going to happen.”In addition to his defensive recognition, Johnson was also named special teams player of the week. Meyer also acknowledged the blocking of redshirt senior Taylor Rice, Spencer, redshirt senior Stewart Smith and freshman Luke Roberts in leading Brown to his punt return touchdown.Simon was also named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week, while Brown earned the Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week award.No comment on MarylandThe University of Maryland made big news in the Big Ten on Monday, announcing that they will become the conference’s 13th member effective July 1, 2014. That means football matchups against the Buckeyes are within their near future, but Meyer had little to say about the announcement on Monday.“Yesterday … was the first time I even heard about it,” Meyer said. read more
