DESIGN West 2013 (formerly Embedded Systems Conference) wrapped up last Thursday after three days of exhibits and over 150 technical lectures. The show was well attended, and a number of the visitors to our booth commented on the technical sessions they attended. The Sealevel booth featured two of our new COM Express-based industrial computers. The Relio R2 and Relio R3 are solid-state computers with options of Intel Atom, i3, or i7 processor. These computers are designed for demanding applications using solid-state SATA hard drives and without cooling fans to ensure maximum reliability.
