?Baseband Processing?

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 Rugged flame-retardent laminates for military PCBs from Rogers: "Rogers has introduced XT/duroid high-performance thermoplastic laminate materials, suitable for high-frequency multilayer circuits in military, aerospace and deep-space applications.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Magna-Power Electronics - take a look at High slew-rate option for power supplies which says: "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.".

Take a look also at the news release from Kontron, System host board for energy and medical sectors, as well as Sensor IC withstands harsh automotive environments from Allegro Microsystems, and HTC material for low loss in high-power circuits from Rogers.
