(Not Your Mother’s) Black Friday Edition

Fish Fry - November 26, 2010

In my special Black Friday Fish Fry this week, I talk about what exactly merits a Black Friday “special edition”, the peanut butter and chocolate combo that is the Intel/Altera E600C collaboration, Xilinx’s 28Gbps transceivers and Digi-Key’s redesigned booth for electronica 2010. Oh and there’s a nerdy giveaway at the end!

Join me for this week’s news wrap-up with my spin on the high-tech news of the week…

If you like the idea of this new series, be sure and drop a comment in the box below. I appreciate all of the comments submitted so far and we are working on implementing as many as we can.

If you don’t like it, please send your comments to spam@techfocusmedia.com. I’ll get to them right after I refinance my house, refill my online prescriptions, and help out that friendly Nigerian banker that keeps e-mailing me.

OK, seriously – all comments are welcome. We’ll be working to enhance the FishFry each week – as long as you’re watching.

Use Configurable Digital IO To Give Your Industrial Controller the Edge

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

As factories get bigger, centralized industrial process control has become difficult to manage. While there have been attempts to simplify the task, it remains unwieldy. In this design solution, we briefly review the centralized approach before looking at what potential changes edge computing will bring to the factory floor. We also show a digital IO IC that allows for smaller, more adaptable programmable logic controllers (PLCs) more suited to this developing architecture.
