?Antenna Design?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Dates announced for National Electronics Week from National Electronics Week, which we summarised at the time by saying "NEW Events has announced that National Electronics Week 2011 is taking place from 12-13 April at the NEC Pavilion in Birmingham. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Linear introduces H-grade switching regulator from Linear Technology: "Linear Technology has announced a H-grade step-down switching regulator for load dump and cold-crank conditions commonly found in automotive applications as well as 24V industrial supplies.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Altera - take a look at EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor which says: "The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified a safety-critical avionics system that includes a DO-254/ED-80-certifiable version of Altera's Nios II embedded processor.".

Take a look also at the news release from Texas Instruments, Power-management controller for standard MOSFETs, as well as SoC ICs for cable and terrestrial set-top boxes from ST Microelectronics, and Gain blocks for cellular bands GSM, CDMA and UMTS from Avago Technologies.
