An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor from Altera, which we summarised at the time by saying "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.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release SoC ICs for cable and terrestrial set-top boxes from ST Microelectronics: "STMicroelectronics has unveied the STi7162 and STi5262, two System-on-Chip ICs allowing standard-definition (SD) or high-definition (HD) equipment to share the same printed-circuit-board (PCB) design.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Maxim Integrated Products - take a look at VGA for wireless infrastructure transceivers which says: "Maxim Integrated Products has introduced the MAX2062, a fully programmable, multistate, dual-channel, analogue and digital IF/RF variable-gain amplifier suitable for automatic gain control circuits.".

Take a look also at the news release from Diodes Incorporated, Driver controller for illumination and signage, as well as Tektronix offers architecture for PCI Express 3.0 from Tektronix, and Development board for HMI/automotive applications from Mistral Solutions.
