?Ceramic Capacitors?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Linear introduces H-grade switching regulator from Linear Technology, which we summarised at the time by saying "Linear Technology has announced a H-grade step-down switching regulator for load dump and cold-crank conditions commonly found in automotive applications as well as 24V industrial supplies.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release High slew-rate option for power supplies from Magna-Power Electronics: "Power supply expert Magna-Power Electronics has released a high slew-rate output option to meet the demands of fast-performance DC applications such as battery charging and photovoltaic emulation.".

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 Texas Instruments, TPS54618 for DSP- and FPGA-based communications, as well as CMOS LDO regulators for low-power applications from Torex Semiconductor, and DC/DC uModule PoL regulator for RAID systems from Linear Technology.
