?Digital Imaging?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Rakon TCXOs feature power management from Rakon, which we summarised at the time by saying "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. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release QDR and DDR SRAMs for reducing power consumption from Cypress Semiconductor: "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.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Cypress Semiconductor - take a look at CMOS image sensor put inside digital film camera which says: "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.".

Take a look also at the news release from Magna-Power Electronics, High slew-rate option for power supplies, as well as VGA for wireless infrastructure transceivers from Maxim Integrated Products, and Tektronix offers architecture for PCI Express 3.0 from Tektronix.
