?Mobile Handsets?

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 AC/DC power converters for medical applications from Bear Power Supplies: "Bear's compact and rugged BP Series encapsulated AC/DC power converters are available for purchase online, simplifying OEM evaluation for commercial, industrial and medical applications. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Tyco Electronics - take a look at Tyco announces JEDEC-based memory module which says: "Tyco Electronics has introduced a very low-profile (VLP) double-data-rate 3 (DDR3) dual in-line memory module (DIMM) socket designed around JEDEC industry standards. ".

Take a look also at the news release from EMKA, EMKA develops locking system range, as well as Offline switcher IC eliminates no-load waste from Power Integrations, and CMOS logic devices suited for mobile phones from Diodes Incorporated.
