Video surveillance gets H.264 encoding


Exar has introduced a digital video recorder on a PCI Express card for professional video surveillance applications. The VRC7016XE card features two Exar S7110 software configurable processors and performs H.264 encoding on 16 channels of up to 960H NTSC/PAL video at full resolution and frame rate. With 960H video, surveillance systems can have a wider horizontal field-of-view (FOV) than what ...

ADI selects Cortex-M4 and model-based design for motor control

ADSP-CM40x pr shot no title

Analog Devices has combined an ARM Cortex-M4 processor and a model-based design platform to address the needs of closed loop motor and solar photo-voltaic (PV) inverter control. The floating-point Cortex-M4 processor core runs at 240MHz and ADI has also integrated a dual 16-bit A/D converter with up to 14 bits of accuracy and 380ns conversion speed. ADI’s previous motor controller platform was based on ...
