ADLINK Technology's Ampro CoreModule 745

The newest small-form-factor, rugged single-board computer from ADLINK is the Ampro CoreModule 745. This stackable PC/104-Plus SBC allows OEMs in military, avionics, transportation and other rugged markets to add a state-of-the-art Intel architecture controller to their systems without the need for a custom carrier board. The module supports a range of Intel Atom processors, from the power-efficient N450 running at 1.66GHz to the performance-oriented dual-core D510. The Atom's two-chip solution architecture with integrated memory and graphics controllers permit excellent performance with very low power requirements. With a TDP as low as 9W, the CoreModule 745 simplifies cooling requirements and enables conduction-cooled solutions for small sealed enclosures in space-constrained applications.

Opera Browser

Could the longtime cult-favorite browser Opera finally make the big time with its new version 11? The company says that Opera 11 is big—a browser that, besides adding a layer of polish to features users have known and loved for a decade, will “change everything you know about browsing”. The key new features include tab stacking, numerous new extensions and visual mouse gestures. Tab stacking is a novel way to organize open tabs. Extensions personalize the browser and add functionality. Visual mouse gestures allow browsing commands via a flick of the wrist. Opera 11, with its 30% smaller footprint, is available for download on Linux, Mac OS and Windows platforms.
