An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Ceradiodes protect many USB ports simultaneously from TTI, which we summarised at the time by saying "TTI has launched Ceradiode arrays from Epcos, which are used to protect several USB ports simultaneously from static discharges, significantly reducing the PCB space and logistics costs. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Icon connector offers up to 168 signal contacts from Peak Production Equipment: "The Peak Group is offering the I2 Micro Icon connector from Virginia Panel to provide a mass interconnect solution for automatic test systems including equipment based on PXI cards. ".

In July 2010, we covered the news from Linear Technology - take a look at Buck regulator uses 2.25MHZ switching frequency which says: "Linear Technology has announced the LTC3619 synchronous buck regulator, which operates from an input voltage range of 2.5V to 5.5V, making it suitable for single-cell Li-ion and USB applications. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Maxim Integrated Products, LED driver provides high tolerance to faults, as well as Buck converter has very low series resistance from Diodes Incorporated, and Mobile peripheral device operates as hub or bridge from Toshiba Electronics.
