SMARC 2.0 quick starter kit speeds up NXP i.MX 8 based applications

SMARC 2.0 quick starter kit speeds up NXP i.MX 8 based applications

The kit integrates conga-SMX8 computer modules with either the low-power NXP i.MX 8X or the high-end NXP i.MX8 (QuadMax) series, as well as a conga-SEVAL evaluation carrier board, which offers access to all interfaces and functions for SMARC 2.0 based NXP i.MX 8 designs. The evaluation carrier supports a comprehensive set of interfaces including 4x PCIe x1, 1x mini PCIe, 2x USB 3.0, and 4x USB 2.0 for generic extensions. Next to 2x RJ45 for Gigabit Ethernet, 4x COM, 1x CAN bus and 12 GPIOs are also available.

Built as an extension of gym-gazebo, gym-gazebo2 has been redesigned with community feedback and adopts now a standalone architecture while mantaining the core concepts of previous work inspired originally by the OpenAI gym.

The end game of the automation pyramid

The end game of the automation pyramid

As a pictorial example of the different levels of automation in a factory, the automation pyramid has long been used as a visual aid to understand how layers of technology communicate.

Starting from process and field levels, working up to the corporate level of manufacturing processes, the traditional pyramid illustrates how devices, actuators and sensors on the factory floor are distinctly separate from other areas, such as process control, supervisory networks and enterprise systems.

Microfluidics-based quantum dot 'factory' tunes colour on-the-go

Microfluidics-based quantum dot 'factory' tunes colour on-the-go

Based on the NanoRobo microfluidic platform they unveiled two years ago, the Nanocrystal (NC) Factory as the authors call it starts with cesium lead bromide perovskite quantum dots and introduces various halide salts to precisely tune their fluorescence color across the entire spectrum of visible light.

Anions in these salts replace the bromine atoms in the green-emitting dots with either iodine atoms (to move toward the red end of the spectrum) or chlorine atoms (to move toward blue).
