?Digital Signal Processor?

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 EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor from Altera: "The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has certified a safety-critical avionics system that includes a DO-254/ED-80-certifiable version of Altera's Nios II embedded processor.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Cypress Semiconductor - take a look at QDR and DDR SRAMs for reducing power consumption which says: "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.".

Take a look also at the news release from Cypress Semiconductor, CMOS image sensor put inside digital film camera, as well as Ocean Blue SoCs suited for connected TV products from Ocean Blue, and High slew-rate option for power supplies from Magna-Power Electronics.
