?Led Drivers?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release CAN Physical Layer transceiver for home automation from NXP Semiconductors, which we summarised at the time by saying "NXP has announced the LPC11C22 and LPC11C24, which enable the adoption of low-cost CAN in a variety of industrial and automation applications for factories, buildings and in the home.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Resources simplify design of Linux-based systems from Toshiba Electronics: "Toshiba Electronics and Kernel Concepts have announced a range of free resources that will simplify the design of Linux-based embedded systems built around ARM9 microcontrollers. ".

In January 2011, we covered the news from Linear Technology - take a look at DC/DC controller implements Intel protocols. which says: "Linear Technology has introduced the LTC3816, a single-phase synchronous step-down DC/DC controller implementing the Intel IMVP-6, IMVP-6+ and IMVP-6.5 protocols.".

Take a look also at the news release from Saelig, Logic analyser and signal generator in one package, as well as Saelig USB isolator for PC-connected devices from Saelig, and Precision USB oscilloscope for scientific use from Saelig.
