?Colour Stn?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release CMOS image sensor put inside digital film camera from Cypress Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "Cypress Semiconductor's CMOS image sensor has been designed into the 35mm Alexa digital motion-picture camera from ARRI, used to produce films including 3D movies and commercial shoots.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Single-chip LED with green phosphor converter from Osram Opto Semiconductors: "Osram Opto Semiconductors has developed a pre-production green LED based on the Ostar platform that is twice as bright as its predecessors, for use in data projectors in office or education markets.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Osram Opto Semiconductors - take a look at LED suitable for TV and LCD monitor backlighting which says: "The Topled Compact 5630 LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors is designed for backlighting applications such as monitors and television screens.".

Take a look also at the news release from Anderson Power Products, SPEC Pak enables environmental connections, as well as FPGA-based frame grabbers for image acquisition from Stemmer Imaging, and GTK offers customisable 27-colour LCD module from GTK.
