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 Development board for HMI/automotive applications from Mistral Solutions: "Mistral Solutions has announced Craneboard, a low-cost ARM-based development board that offers designers a fully open-source printed circuit board (PCB) and design to reduce development costs.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Atmel - take a look at Atmel touch controller used in Sharp smartphones which says: "Atmel has announced that Sharp has selected its Maxtouch mXT224 touch controller to power the SH8128U smartphone. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Peregrine Semiconductor, SOS substrate enables IC semiconductor manufacture, as well as Chip filters optimise performance of mobile phones from Taiyo Yuden, and PCI mezzanine card targets the space industry from Aitech Defense Systems.
