Start with the news release ProcessorPM and ISPMACH development kits launched from Lattice Semiconductor UK, which we summarised at the time by saying "Lattice Semiconductor has announced the availability of eight reference designs and two development kits for prototyping high-volume, low-power, space-constrained applications.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release ON announces NCV7341 CAN transceiver from ON Semiconductor: "ON Semiconductor has announced a high-speed controller area network (CAN) transceiver IC for automotive in-vehicle networking (IVN) applications.".

In September 2008, we covered the news from Toshiba Electronics Europe - take a look at Toshiba releases three-phase sine wave PWM driver which says: "Toshiba Electronics Europe has expanded its range of integrated single-chip motor drives with a three-phase sine wave PWM driver. ".

Take a look also at the news release from ON Semiconductor, AMIS acquisition expands distribution portfolio, as well as ARM cores power ASIC offerings from Toshiba Electronics Europe, and IP core catches FPGA thieves red handed from Algotronix.
