We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "Analogue design", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.

Start with the news release Sales agreement covers modeling software from Infiniscale, which we summarised at the time by saying "IVIS has agreed to be responsible for sales and support of Infiniscale's modeling, model-based optimisation and parametric yield solutions". A couple of weeks before, we featured the news release Analogue companion cuts power for portable design from austriamicrosystems: "Latest integrated audio and power management device combines all system analogue functions required around a digital SoC for mobile entertainment products".

In December 2007, we covered the news from austriamicrosystems concerning its AS3518 - take a look at Codec/power management combo chosen for PNDs which says: "The AS3518 audio codec and advanced power management IC is chosen to power a reference design aimed at personal navigation devices and multimedia phones".

Take a look also at the news release from Innovision Research and Technology, NFC technology comes as semiconductor IP, as well as Design kit mixed-mode and logic sub-processes from Mentor Graphics UK, and Acquisition expands data-convertor IP portfolio from Silicon and Software Systems (S3).
