WinSystems PPM-LX800-G
The PPM-LX800-G is a highly integrated, PC/104-Plus compatible, 500 MHz Pentium-class single board computer. This SBC is based on the low power, AMD LX 800@0.9 W CPU, which has product availability through at least 2015. The board includes the CPU, video, Ethernet, USB, COM ports, EIDE controller, digital I/O, mouse, PC 97 audio and keyboard controllers on one board, which measures only 3.6 inches by 3.8 inches. The SBC is designed for low-cost, high-volume, space- and power-limited embedded applications with mid-range performance such as industrial, instrumentation, medical, telecommunications, homeland security, utilities, transportation and MIL/COTS.

The SBC can be populated with up to 1 GB of system DRAM plus onboard CompactFlash. An onboard high-resolution video engine supports displays with resolutions up to 1920 x 1440 for a CRT or up to 1600 x 1200 for a flat panel. An Intel 82551ER 10/100 controller supports Ethernet networking. Further I/O support includes two USB 2.0 ports (with in-rush and over-current protection), four independent full-duplex serial UARTs, 16-lines of TTL-compatible digital I/O and AC97 audio. The PPM-LX800-G contains the core logic to provide PC-compatibility for the I/O and bus interface logic including the Ultra DMA100 controller for hard drives, keyboard/mouse controller, LPT interface, interrupt controller and real-time clock. A precision power-fail reset circuit, activity LED, PC/104 and PC/104-Plus expansion and watchdog-timer are also included.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
