?Analogue Switches?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release QDR and DDR SRAMs for reducing power consumption from Cypress Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "Cypress Semiconductor has announced Quad Data Rate (QDR) and Double Data Rate (DDR) SRAMs at 36-Mbit and 18-Mbit densities, for networking use in medical imaging and military signal-processing.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release High slew-rate option for power supplies from Magna-Power Electronics: "Power supply expert Magna-Power Electronics has released a high slew-rate output option to meet the demands of fast-performance DC applications such as battery charging and photovoltaic emulation.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Maxim Integrated Products - take a look at VGA for wireless infrastructure transceivers which says: "Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX2062, a fully programmable, multistate, dual-channel, analogue and digital IF/RF variable-gain amplifier suitable for automatic gain control circuits.".

Take a look also at the news release from Allegro Microsystems, Sensor IC withstands harsh automotive environments, as well as Tektronix offers architecture for PCI Express 3.0 from Tektronix, and Carling switches target transportation industry from Master Distributors.
