Enigma Cipher Machine – As it does each year at Design West, Cryptography Research displayed the German Enigma cipher machine in its booth. The machine played a vital role during WWII.
Enigma Cipher Machine Innards – This photo shows the wheels that were used to create the encrypted text as well as the bulbs that would light up the decrypted characters.
Linx Technologies NT series provides a simple way to link microcontrollers using 900 MHz transceivers like those used in their NT Development Kit.
Linx Technologies TT series can interface directly to switches and LEDs. No micro required for low cost wireless communication.
XMOS multicore chips can implement high speed serial interfaces like Ethernet and CAN in software. The Ethernet switch in the middle ties the dev kits together. The little adapter boards are Ethernet and CAN PHYs.
A pair of Lapis Semiconductor's low power, ML61 8-bit microcontrollers are found on their latest development kit. The connectors are compatible with Rasberry Pi so you can use peripheral interfaces from that platform. Of course, you will need to write the support code unless it is written in C.
Zilog's Educational Platform contains dual breadboard areas, a 16-line LCD and a 16-button keypad. It also supports wireless options. Just the thing to check out the latest Zilog ZNEO-based Z16F2810 microcontroller.
The Zilog ZGate Bridge is a secure embedded firewall. It combines Zilog's eZ80F91 8-bit micro with Icon Lab's firewall technology.
Green Hills Software's Integrity Multivisor: Secure Virtualization for Android places a hypervisor between a pair of Android images providing isolation and a secure mechanism for corporate applications to run on a personal smartphone.
Green Hills Software's Integrity Multivisor: Secure Virtualization for Android gives a green light (LED) when running the unsecured virtual Android image.
The red light (LED) on the smartphone running Green Hills Software's Integrity Multivisor: Secure Virtualization for Android means the secured Android image is running with a VPN connection to the corporate site.
It's an Arm-ed kegger. Arm was delivering beer and root beer with an Arm-based tracking system recording each transaction and amount.
Arm's computerized keg tracks the amount of beer or root beer being served but I don't think the number of significant digits was correct. That was salesforce.com's default presentation method though.
Adlink's SEMA technology is a hardware/software framework that provides monitoring and management capabilities to the boards and modules. More are becoming SEMA-enabled.
Adlinks SMARC card line provides a compact module for its Arm-based solutions. SMARC was formally known as ULP-COM.
Adlink's rugged, extended temperature MXC-6300 series can host almost any Intel 3rd generation processor. It has support for 3 independent displays and multiple PCI Express slots.
