PRODUCT BRIEFS
SPOTLIGHT: HARDWARE & SOFTWARE
Resolution cloud streaming
Varjo (Helsinki,
Finland) announced
the addition of
cloud streaming to
its Reality Cloud
platform. The new
service enables users
to deploy virtual
and mixed reality
applications from
the cloud and include
human-eye
resolution VR/XR
content when using
Varjo headsets.
Varjo's Reality
Cloud is powered by Amazon Web Services and NVIDIA
GPUs. The company states that by streaming content directly
from the cloud, local computing requirements are significantly
reduced and the need for supported software applications
is diminished. Varjo's proprietary foveated transport
algorithm can stream content directly from their cloud
to VR/XR devices with a bandwidth of 35 megabits per second.
Additionally, all the traffic between the local PC and
the servers, including the stream itself, is encrypted.

Plastic gears
Evonik (Essen,
Germany) VESTAKEEP
PEEK plastic gears are
now in series production
for a mass-balance
transmission. The gears
feature sufficient tribological
properties and
durability for applications
which ordinarily
required metal gears. The company states that this is the first
use of plastic in this application and that these gears can
withstand oil temperatures of 130°C (266°F). The gears are
manufactured by IMS Gear SE & Co KGaA and currently are
utilized by Mercedes-Benz AG in various models. According
to Evonik, plastic gears suffer lower friction losses than metal
counterparts, with significantly quieter operation. Their lowermass
moment of inertia also saves energy and the injection
molding manufacturing process is very cost-effective compared
to metal gear production.

AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERING
New development platform
Opal Kelly (Portland, Oregon) announced the XEM8320AU25P
development platform for the Xilinx Artix UltraScale+
FPGA. The new platform features Opal Kelly's FrontPanel SDK
for building high-performance, software-connected FPGA
applications. It leverages the versatile SYZYGY modular connectivity
for rapid prototyping and expansion as well as USB
3.0 Type C SuperSpeed interface. The platform also includes
11 highspeed gigabit transceiver lanes via Artix UltraScale+
transceivers that support serial standards such as 10 GbE,
JESD-204B, DisplayPort, PCI Express, SATA, HD-SDI, XAUI,
and Aurora. Opal Kelly states that the platform is fitted with
several SYZYGY connectors plus four standard ports and two
transceiver ports for expansion and system development.

Graphics output boards
Abaco
Systems
(Huntsville,
Alabama) announced
the
release of its
NPN244 and
NPN244S
graphics output
boards for defense, aerospace and industrial applications.
The 6U VPX high-performance computers (HPC) offer improvements
to minimize latency for real-time video and data
streaming. Both boards are aimed at data-intensive digital
signal processing for military and civil applications, including
ISR, high-performance airborne radar, synthetic aperture radar
and ground moving target indicators. They are supported
by Abaco's AXIS ImageFlex, which enables rapid development
of high-performance image processing for visualization
and autonomy applications with unique size, weight and power
(SWaP) requirements.
