?Bipolar Transistors?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release MSC distributes YDS DC/DC converters from MSC Vertriebs, which we summarised at the time by saying "MSC is now offering the 95DW-R3 series 20W DC/DC converters from YDS, which can be used in various measurement equipment and other device requiring a precisely regulated voltage. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Driver controller for illumination and signage from Diodes Incorporated: "Diodes Incorporated has designed the AL8400 linear LED driver controller to tightly regulate a variation of high-brightness LED currents via an external transistor.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Maxim Integrated Products - take a look at Two-channel ADC for energy-harvesting sensors which says: "The MAX11645 two-channel ADC is suited for applications ranging from energy-harvesting sensors to portable consumer electronics and point-of-load monitoring in networking and computer systems. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Rogers, HTC material for low loss in high-power circuits, as well as High-temperature data-transmission system unveiled from Cissoid, and Op amp allows data acquisition and process control from Intersil.
