An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Outdoor cooler uses bi-polar thermostatic control from Laird Technologies, which we summarised at the time by saying "Laird Technologies has announced the release of its outdoor thermoelectric cooler series with bi-polar thermostatic control. ". 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 Aimtec - take a look at 1W power supplies offer efficiency of 89 per cent which says: "Aimtec has broadened its product line with the addition of the AM1D-RZ series of 1W power supplies, featuring 80 models with efficiency rates up to 89 per cent and load regulation of six per cent.".

Take a look also at the news release from Aimtec, Aimtec power supplies offer auto-recovery restart, as well as Ocean Blue SoCs suited for connected TV products from Ocean Blue, and Voltage controller with integrated power MOSFET from Linear Technology.
