?Aerospace Markets?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Gain blocks for cellular bands GSM, CDMA and UMTS from Avago Technologies, which we summarised at the time by saying "Avago Technologies has expanded its high-performance power amplifier range with the MGA-31589 and MGA-31689 0.5-watt gain blocks, suitable for cellular infrastructure applications.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Rugged flame-retardent laminates for military PCBs from Rogers: "Rogers has introduced XT/duroid high-performance thermoplastic laminate materials, suitable for high-frequency multilayer circuits in military, aerospace and deep-space applications.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Avnet Memec - take a look at PLDs for low-power consumer design applications which says: "Avnet Memec is offering Lattice Semiconductor's MachXO2T programmable logic devices (PLDs), which offer low-density PLD designers low cost, low power and high system integration in a single device.".

Take a look also at the news release from Peregrine Semiconductor, SOS substrate enables IC semiconductor manufacture, as well as LNAs target wireless communications markets from Freescale Semiconductor, and 28nm technology strategy targets wireless market from Altera.
