?Risc Processor?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor from Altera, which we summarised at the time by saying "The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified a safety-critical avionics system that includes a DO-254/ED-80-certifiable version of Altera's Nios II embedded processor.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Ocean Blue SoCs suited for connected TV products from Ocean Blue: "Ocean Blue Software has ported its Sunrise HD DVB stack and Voyager HD MHEG-5 stack onto set-top box (STB) chipsets from Renesas and Trident.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Kontron - take a look at System host board for energy and medical sectors which says: "Kontron has introduced the PICMG 1.3 system host PCI-761, a slot-card-sized industrial server board equipped with the Intel Q57 Express chipset for asynchronous real-time applications.".

Take a look also at the news release from Stemmer Imaging, FPGA-based frame grabbers for image acquisition, as well as TFT touch-panel PC for POS/kiosk applications from Avalue Technology, and PCE-5125 board ideal for industrial applications from Advantech.
