Courtesy: AdvantechAdvantech's SOM-7565 is a COM-Express Mini module provides a solution for handheld/portable applications. Powered by the Intel Atom processor N2600, the new SOM-7565 offers balanced performance with the focus on super low-power consumption. This solution helps customers build low-power applications for a variety of handheld and portable devices. 

SOM-7565 is Advantech’s first COM-Express Mini module compliant with the COM R2.1 type 10 specification, for customers targeting ultra low-power applications. The compact design (84 x 55 mm) is about the size of a business card, making it suitable for portable applications in point of sale, transportation, medical and factory devices. With Intel Atom processor N2600 + chipset NM10 at TDP 5 W, Advantech can provide a powerful solution consuming around 8 W during heavy loading. The dual-core processor delivers a 40% or more improvement in processing power compared to Intel Atom processors N455 and E680. Designing a carrier board driven by SOM-7565 provides ample performance, but low power consumption.

Features include:

  • PICMG COM R2.0 compliant module for Intel Atom processors N2600
  • Intel gfx support for DX9 and OGL 3.0
  • Supports 18-bit LVDS, eDP/HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort
  • Onboard 2 GB DDR3 800 memory and 4 GB SSD

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
