19-inch rack industrial PC, SIMATIC IPC547D
Special hard-disk supports, card retainers and power plug interlocks ensure protection against vibration and shock. The new PC offers flexible expansion possibilities via a PCIe x8 (1 lane) slot, two PCIe x16 (2.0 with 16 and 4 lanes) and four PCI slots for long expansion cards. One DVI and Display Port interface as well as an optional PCI-Express x 16 graphics card enable multi monitoring with up to four monitors.
The new rack PC has various interfaces: Two teaming-capable Gigabit-Ethernet and eleven USB-2.0 interfaces, of which two are on the front, and one is internal with additional mechanical interlocking for the use of a software dongle. For fast and reliable data storage, SATA hard disks are used with up to one terabyte capacity or a solid-state drive. For efficient diagnostics, the device features status LEDs on the front for fan, temperature and hard disks in the RAID network. For device diagnostics, the optional diagnostics software SIMATIC IPC DiagMonitor can be used. For password-protected remote access, for example, for the purposes of remote diagnosis or remote monitoring, the user can utilize the Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT 7.0) that is integrated into the Intel Core i7 and i5 processors. The energy consumption of the device can be lowered by using the Wake-on-LAN functions, or by switching between standby and active modes remotely.
The new SIMATIC Rack PC IPC547D can be supplied, if required, with a preinstalled and preactivated operating system – Windows XP Professional or Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit and 64-bit). Variants with Windows Server 2008 (32-bit) / 2008 R2 (64-bit) will be available soon. A tower kit is also available, which allows the PC to be used as an industrial workstation or server in control rooms and technical offices.

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.
In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.
Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
