?Crosspoint Switch?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Linear introduces H-grade switching regulator from Linear Technology, which we summarised at the time by saying "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.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Rakon TCXOs feature power management from Rakon: "Rakon has developed a range of digitally controlled temperature controlled crystal oscillator that can maximise battery life and minimise the electronic signature of military equipment. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Elma Electronic - take a look at Load board that assesses cooling systems which says: "Elma UK, a manufacturer of high-performance backplanes, has announced a new 6U VPX Load Board in a conduction-cooled format, to help test a system's cooling capabilities and to locate its hotspots.".

Take a look also at the news release from Linear Technology, Voltage controller with integrated power MOSFET, as well as Valve connector simplifies manufacturing process from Molex, and PFC/PWM controller targets power engineers from Fairchild Semiconductor.
