ADLINK Technology, Inc. Posted 11/24/2015
New version of SEMA offers a broad spectrum of enhanced functionality to improve system reliability and ease system integration
San Jose, CA – ADLINK Technology, Inc., a leading global provider of cloud-based services, intelligent gateways, and embedded building blocks for edge devices that enable the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced availability of the latest version of its remote management middleware tool, SEMA 3.0, which is able to monitor and collect system performance and status information from distributed devices in a timely, flexible and precise manner.
New functionality offered in SEMA 3.0 enhances the already comprehensive feature set of the existing, proven SEMA solution. Improved reporting and monitoring functions show detailed information about distributed device CPU, system memory and network interface. New controlling functions make it possible to throttle or raise the CPU frequency and set ACPI (Advanced Configure and Power Interface) power management. In addition, enhanced maintenance functions now read out HDD (Hard Disk Drive) S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) information used for monitoring the HDD’s health status.
“One of the many enhancements in SEMA 3.0 has been to extend the customization capabilities of the API we offer,” explained Dirk Finstel, executive vice president of ADLINK’s Module Computing Product Segment. “This enables customers to develop tailored solutions and to integrate monitoring and control functions into their embedded systems.”
SEMA 3.0 is supported on a broad spectrum of hardware platforms. The majority of ADLINK´s computer-on-modules, single board computers and embedded computer systems are SEMA-enabled. The intelligent middleware runs on the most widely used embedded operating systems and supports both x86 and ARM architectures.
SEMA 3.0 is provided to customers at no-cost for use in combination with SEMA-enabled ADLINK hardware. SEMA 3.0 helps customers to improve system reliability, reduce maintenance costs and ease system integration of embedded systems. Hence, it improves TTM (Time-to-Market) and TCO (Total Cost-of-Ownership), key requirements for producing competitive products.
