Start with the news release Dates announced for National Electronics Week from National Electronics Week, which we summarised at the time by saying "NEW Events has announced that National Electronics Week 2011 is taking place from 12-13 April at the NEC Pavilion in Birmingham. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Valve connector simplifies manufacturing process from Molex: "Molex has expanded its range of externally threaded Brad mPm DIN valve connectors with the addition of Form C and Form Micro housings for hydraulics and pneumatics systems.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Allegro Microsystems - take a look at Sensor IC withstands harsh automotive environments which says: "Allegro Microsystems has launched the A1356, a user-programmable linear Hall-effect sensor IC with a pulse width modulated (PWM) output for automotive gear and clutch detection and position sensing.".

Take a look also at the news release from Radiall, PC socket contact with stamped and rolled clip, as well as Offline switcher IC eliminates no-load waste from Power Integrations, and CMOS logic devices suited for mobile phones from Diodes Incorporated.
