An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Monitoring system features Nordic transceivers from Nordic Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "Nordic Semiconductor has announced that Spantec has developed a fully comprehensive ANT+ telemedical remote monitoring system using Nordic nRF24AP2 eight-channel 2.4GHz ANT transceivers.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor from Altera: "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.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Texas Instruments - take a look at Power-management controller for standard MOSFETs which says: "Texas Instruments has introduced a power-management controller and driver for standard and logic-level N-channel MOSFETs used for low-voltage, secondary-side synchronous rectification. ".

Take a look also at the news release from RDP Electronics, Transducers suited to shock and vibration tests, as well as SoC ICs for cable and terrestrial set-top boxes from ST Microelectronics, and Ocean Blue SoCs suited for connected TV products from Ocean Blue.
