?Pol Convertor?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release SFP+ cable assemblies enable 10Gb/s Ethernet apps from Tyco Electronics, which we summarised at the time by saying "The SFP+ copper and Paralight active optical cable assemblies offer a cost-effective alternative to standard fibre-optic cables in 10Gb/s Ethernet, 8Gb/s Fibre Channel and Infiniband applications.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Diamond launches Aurora single-board computer from Diamond Systems: "Diamond Systems, a supplier of single-board computers (SBCs) and expansion modules for real-world applications, launched the Aurora SBC at the recent Intel Developer Forum (IDF).".

In August 2010, we covered the news from Farnell - take a look at Webinar to focus on digital data converters which says: "Farnell and Analog Devices (ADI), a provider of semiconductors for signal processing tasks, plan to host a webinar entitled 'Designing Power Supplies for High-Speed Analogue-to-Digital Converters'.".

Take a look also at the news release from Thurlby Thandar Instruments, TTi introduces laboratory bench DC power supplies, as well as Inertial introduces solid-state magnetometers from Inertial Aerosystems, and VTI enhances capture and time-stamp module from Thurlby Thandar Instruments.
