?Power Supply Design?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Small flash AVR MCUs target consumer electronics from Atmel, which we summarised at the time by saying "Said to be the world's smallest flash AVR microcontroller packages, Atmel's MCUs target applications in the consumer electronics, lighting and industrial control markets. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Integrated power systems for systems designers from Martek Power: "Martek Power Abbott has announced an expanded capability to repackage its modular off-the-shelf units into fully integrated power systems. ".

In May 2010, we covered the news from Z-Communications - take a look at Z designs low-noise VCO for backhaul radio which says: "A low-noise Voltage Controlled Oscillator from Z-Communications has been designed for the backhaul radio market. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Maxim Integrated Products, Signal conditioner for copper interconnects, as well as LTM2881 uModule transceiver breaks ground loops from Linear Technology, and Devices provide ultra-low-profile board mounting from Toshiba Electronics.
