?Handset Manufacturers?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Handheld spectrum analysers for LTE analysis from Rohde and Schwarz, which we summarised at the time by saying "Rohde and Schwarz has launched the FSH4 and FSH8 handheld spectrum analysers that provide a detailed view of long-term evolution (LTE) signals - a significant advantage when troubleshooting.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Ultra-compact LEDs for space-critical applications from Excelsys Technologies: "Excelsys Technologies has introduced the LDV series of ultra-compact LED drivers for applications including in-store food display, mood lighting, advertising displays and architectural lighting.".

In February 2011, we covered the news from Phoenix Contact - take a look at Solid-state reversing contactor saves space which says: "Phoenix Contact has introduced Contactron, a series of hybrid motor starters that facilitate project planning and wiring, making them a space-saving alternative to mechanical contactor circuits.".

Take a look also at the news release from Mindtree Consulting, Ultra-low power consumption Bluetooth IP suite, as well as Test system for AESA radar equipment manufacturers from Rohde and Schwarz, and Devices improve audio quality in consumer products from Intersil.
