Lauterbach Debug Tools to Support NXP LPC54100 Microcontrollers


New Development Kit Enhances Downlighting Designs

Mantracourt's New Software Toolkit Facilitates Complex
Load Monitoring

Lauterbach has announced its support for the new NXP LPC54100 Series of microcontrollers

Lauterbach, a worldwide provider of microprocessor development tools, has announced its support for the LPC54100 Series of microcontrollers recently introduced by NXP.  The LPC54100 Series offers industry leading power efficiency and is ideally suited for “always-on” sensor-based products.

“With µTrace® the developer can control the operation of the program and analyze the data in C and C++ by the use of simple and complex breakpoints,” said Barry Lock, UK Manager, Lauterbach.  “Also, an analogue probe can be connected to µTrace to read the current and voltage measurements for energy profiling, this enables developers to fine-tune their software for minimal power usage. µTrace® will help engineers develop better devices and greatly reduce development time.”More information.

Intelligent LED Solutions (ILS) has announced the launched of its Anna Development Kits, a development platform that enables engineers to explore the different effects of colour temperature and varying beam angles when developing downlighting applications.

The Anna Development Kit is available with a choice of 3,4,5,6 or 7 LED's of differing colour temperature and a choice of narrow, medium and wide beam lenses. In addition to this, the kit includes the necessary metalwork holder, a pcb, a heatsink and a power supply, enabling engineers and designers to explore the effects and possibilities of 21 LED lighting options.

“We are seeing LED technology replacing halogen lamps in many downlighting applications,” said Adrian Amor, Director at ILS. “The prime reason has been the more efficient nature of LED lamp technology; drawing less current and running cooler...” More info...


Mantracourt has announced the launch of a Software Toolkit to accompany its world-renowned LCA20 load cell and strain gauge amplifier, a flexible digital signal conditioning amplifier for single or multiple load monitoring. The new software toolkit enhances the capabilities of the LCA20, enabling easier set up and more advanced control and reporting functions. 

The PC based software toolkit is icon driven, making it intuitive and easy to use. Access to the LCA20 is via a simple connector.  The LCA toolkit enables configuration and calibration of load cell inputs using up to nine point linearisation. It also allows for the setting of load cell filtering characteristics, and digital input functionality, the configuration of the display and generated output values such as the peak, trough, gross and net. The toolkit also includes functions such as system zero and zero tracking. An equally wide range of functionality is applied to the reporting aspects of the toolkit.

Embedded Systems at the Heart of Green Technology

Pebble Bay Helps Vickers Electronics Develop Advanced Energy Management System

Embedded systems design consultancy, Pebble Bay, has announced that it has been working with Vickers Electronics in the development of a new microprocessor-based control unit for industrial heating systems. Based on an ARM Cortex™-M3 processor the new design is far more powerful than the previous solution, and has the capacity for significant additional capabilities.

Vickers Electronics designs and installs energy management systems that seek to reduce energy wastage by controlling all aspects of time and temperature. Vickers engaged Pebble Bay to undertake a complete re-design of the hardware and a software port to provide the new control unit on which their existing application software would run.

"Central to the design is an ARM Cortex™-M3 which has an ideal combination of features for Vickers’ application." said Ian Willats, Managing Director at Pebble Bay. "The ARM Cortex™-M3 core gives good performance and is supported by a wide range of development tools, while the on-chip peripherals minimize the cost and complexity of external devices.”

On-Shoring Creates Demand for Qualified Engineers (published in Machinery Market)

A few years ago, 'out-sourcing' was a trendy term. Today, the new term seems to be 'On-shoring'. On-Shoring is the name being given to the recent trend of manufacturers looking to source components within the UK as opposed to low cost economies such as China or Eastern Europe. Engineering companies are reporting that many contracts are returning to the UK, so much so, that UK engineering companies are now struggling to recruit suitably qualified precision engineers.

During the past two years, many manufacturing companies have started to realise that sourcing abroad can incur many hidden costs.
