?Optical Network?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Photo IC for optical switching applications from Hamamatsu Photonics, which we summarised at the time by saying "Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced a photo IC that is designed for optical switches and provides an analogue waveform output, proportional to the intensity of incident pulsed light. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Dates announced for National Electronics Week from National Electronics Week: "NEW Events has announced that National Electronics Week 2011 is taking place from 12-13 April at the NEC Pavilion in Birmingham. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Nordic Semiconductor - take a look at Monitoring system features Nordic transceivers which says: "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.".

Take a look also at the news release from Axiomtek, Low-power network platform for harsh environments, as well as System host board for energy and medical sectors from Kontron, and Development board for HMI/automotive applications from Mistral Solutions.
