Editor Chris Ciufo spent time with Microchip software manager Joe Drzewiecki at the Spring DESIGN West show (formerly known as ESC). Microchip launched their new MPLAB X compiler strategy that now goes across all Microchip MCUs. It also adds a new license strategy, optimizations that compile 35 percent faster on 32-bit devices (or save 35 percent on code size). There's also a "totally free" version of the MPLAB X compiler. Check out the 3 minute video.
During the Digital Signage Expo 2012, Axiomtek revealed the OPS860, a digital signage player module based on Intel's Open Pluggable Specification. The OPS860 allows users to plug in the module to any OPS compliant display to create an All-in-One Digital Signage Solution. No more messy cables and wires. Just plug in and go!
