An Electronicstalk guide
Start with the news release Photo IC for optical switching applications from Hamamatsu Photonics, which we summarised at the time by saying "Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced a photo IC that is designed for optical switches and provides an analogue waveform output, proportional to the intensity of incident pulsed light. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Oscillator achieves ultra-low phase noise from Z-Communications: "Z-Communications has announced an RoHS-compliant VCO (voltage-controlled oscillator) in S-band for digital radio and fixed wireless applications that require ultra-low phase noise performance. ".
In December 2010, we covered the news from Linear Technology - take a look at Linear introduces H-grade switching regulator which says: "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.".
Take a look also at the news release from Altera, EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor, as well as Self-protected MOSFETs for automotive applications from Diodes Incorporated, and 1W power supplies offer efficiency of 89 per cent from Aimtec.
