A Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Corelis expands embedded test product line from Corelis, which we summarised at the time by saying "Corelis has expanded its ScanExpress JET JTAG Embedded Test product line with support for PowerPC 750/603E processors and the Freescale i.MX31 reference board. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Kontron releases advanced mezzanine card from Kontron UK: "Kontron has announced the AM4101 advanced mezzanine card (AdvancedMC), a processor module for use in applications that require multi-core performance and versatile communication capabilities. ".

In October 2008, we covered the news from Kontron UK - take a look at Kontron launches rugged CPU board which says: "Kontron has launched a 3U CompactPCI CPU boards at Euronaval 2008 in Paris.".

Take a look also at the news release from Express Logic, TCP/IP network stack gets up to speed , as well as NI introduces GPIB controllers from National Instruments, and Xilinx releases DSP and FPGA devices from Xilinx.
