An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Monitoring system features Nordic transceivers from Nordic Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "Nordic Semiconductor has announced that Spantec has developed a fully comprehensive ANT+ telemedical remote monitoring system using Nordic nRF24AP2 eight-channel 2.4GHz ANT transceivers.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Power-management controller for standard MOSFETs from Texas Instruments: "Texas Instruments has introduced a power-management controller and driver for standard and logic-level N-channel MOSFETs used for low-voltage, secondary-side synchronous rectification. ".

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 Molex, Connector system for engine control units and more, as well as Bench-top oscilloscopes ideal for students from Saelig, and Synchronous buck regulator for POL applications from Semtech.
