IoT Prototyping Board

Renesas, Tokyo, Japan, has introduced a low-power prototyping board that will simplify and speed up product development for IoT endpoint equipment including healthcare equipment. The RL78/G14 Fast Prototyping Board is based on the company’s RL78/G14 MCU, which has a numerical processing performance of 51.2 DMIPS at 32 MHz, up to 512 KB of flash memory, and up to 48 KB of RAM. According to the company, it has the industry's lowest levels of current drain, 66 μA/MHZ, when the CPU is operating and 240 nA in standby mode (STOP).

Wireless Platform

A highly integrated, single-chip solution for a wide range of low-power, battery-based IoT product designs is available from Innophase, San Diego, CA. The Talaria TWO System on a Chip (SoC) includes the company’s patented PolaRFusion™ radio — a complete 2.4 GHz radio built using a polar architecture that enables extreme low power and programmable functionality. It includes an Arm Cortex-M3 processor, memory, RF, baseband, PHY, and MAC functionality integrated into a small, single-chip design. The chip initially supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE 5.0) standards.

Asset Management

Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, North Kingston, RI, has released a cloud-ready software solution that offers access to real-time machine status and utilization reporting. The HxGN SFx software unlocks data typically siloed in individual coordinate measuring machines (CMM) to provide real-time insight into the performance, use, and status of multiple CMMs across one or several sites. Manufacturers can shift from managing assets as a cost center to optimizing equipment profitability and value creation. The data aggregated can be used to pre-emptively schedule maintenance and identify sources of downtime.

Ventilation System

IVEC, Newlin, WI, has introduced an on-demand ventilation system. The new Ultra™ high-efficiency air quality control system not only significantly reduces energy costs but also improves air filtration, extends filter life, and reduces equipment maintenance requirements. The system automatically adjusts power usage and fan speeds based on demand and filter conditions. A core component of the system is the new General Ventilation Self Cleaning (GVSC) dust collector, a non-ducted, self-contained ambient air filtration unit designed for easy, versatile configuration above the work zone.

FDR Technology

EOS, Krailling, Germany, offers fine detail resolution (FDR) technology for processing polymers. According to the company, it is the first powder-based 3D printing using a CO laser. The process makes it possible to produce extremely delicate yet robust parts with fine detail resolution surfaces and minimum wall thicknesses of only 0.22 mm. The 50-W CO laser creates an ultra-fine laser beam with a focus diameter that is only half the size of current SLS technologies.
