?Electrostatic Discharge?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Boost converters suit low-voltage applications from Semtech, which we summarised at the time by saying "Semtech has announced a boost converter platform offering what it claims are the world's smallest step-by-step regulators for low-voltage applications.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Voltage regulators feature CL discharge function from Torex Semiconductor: "The XC6224 Series of voltage regulators from Torex is available in the ultra-small USPN-4B02 package (0.95mm x 0.75mm x 0.4mm) as well as standard SSOT-24 and SOT-25 packages. ".

In July 2010, we covered the news from Tecate Industries - take a look at Ultracapacitor modules for military applications which says: "Tecate has announced the quick-turnaround availability of custom ultracapacitor modules engineered to accelerate the development of military ground-mobile, sea, and airborne products and systems.".

Take a look also at the news release from Infineon Technologies, RF transistors for wireless communications devices, as well as Trident suits high-density defluxing applications from Aqueous Technologies , and Front-panel options for subracks and enclosures from Verotec.
