?Battery Charger?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Spectrum Master monitors over-the-air signals from Anritsu, which we summarised at the time by saying "Anritsu's MS272xC hand-held Spectrum Master allows field technicians, monitoring agencies and engineers to monitor over-the-air signals, locate interferers, and detect hidden transmitters. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Battery gas gauges target single-cell Li-Ion apps from Linear Technology: "The LTC2941/LTC2942 battery gas gauges have an I2C interface for 2.7 to 5.5V systems and are suited for single-cell Li-Ion applications such as mobile phones, cameras, MP3 players and GPS receivers. ".

In August 2010, we covered the news from Cypress Semiconductor - take a look at Battery-free power subsystem prevents data loss which says: "Agiga Tech, a subsidiary of Cypress Semiconductor, has introduced a battery-free intelligent power subsystem that prevents the loss of critical data due to power interruption.".

Take a look also at the news release from Avago Technologies, FBAR duplexers for mobile handsets and terminals, as well as Vehicle PC operates in extreme temperatures from American Industrial Systems, and Scopes enable intermittent pulse investigation from Saelig.
