AcQ is looking for an Embedded Software Engineer. Please see the Jobs page for more information.
The SCARLETT (SCAlable & ReconfigurabLe Electronics plaTforms and Tools) project was an EU research collaboration between a 39 partners from 16 countries. The goal of the project was to develop technologies for the next generation of Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA); which are scalable, reconfigurable, fault-tolerant and secure platform, under the name DME: Distributed Modular Electronics. […]
In collaboration with the Technical University of Eindhoven (TU/e), AcQ has created a high-performance FPGA board to support innovative photonics research. The data throughput of server farms has been growing exponentially in recent years, as modern households increasingly use more bandwidth. With the continuing rise of streaming services (Youtube, Netflix, etc) in ever high quality […]
AcQ has developed a range of cutting-edge VPX processor boards (the “Medusa” boards) based on the NXP T4-series of System-on-Chip (SoC) devices. These devices include the T4240 (24 virtual cores), T4160 (16 virtual cores) and T4080 (8 virtual cores). This was an internal development to create an innovative new standard Single Board Computer (SBC) product […]
For a customer involved in the steel manufacturing industry, AcQ has developed a highly accurate and reliable measurement and control system (MMC). Making steel is a complicated chemical process, which involves heating iron in a vessel and inserting oxygen and other substances to remove unwanted impurities from the iron. This process is called basic oxygen […]
The ASHLEY* project was a European aerospace reseach program, which built upon the work previously done in SCARLETT (in which AcQ also participated). It extended the concept of Distributed Modular Electronics (DME) to new applications in an aircraft. A total of 36 organisations from 13 countries participated in this project. AcQ was involved in the […]
AcQ was one of the partners in the AFLoNext European research project. This project investigated and demonstrated technologies to improve aircraft fuel efficiency, reduce aircraft weight and reduce aircraft noise. The project was subdivided in multiple Technology Streams; AcQ was part of TS1 collaborating with DLR, Airbus Germany and other partners. This technology stream implemented, […]
AcQ is proud to introduce the “Medusa” VPX3424, a 3U OpenVPX™ Single Board Computer (SBC) featuring the all-new T4240 QorIQ™ Processor from Freescale™. This 12-core, 24-thread processor running at 1.5GHz is based on the e6500 core and offers the cutting edge of both performance and power efficiency. With up to 12GB 1866MT/s DDR3 memory with […]
