?Pressure Sensor?

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 Monitoring system features Nordic transceivers from Nordic Semiconductor: "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.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Cypress Semiconductor - take a look at CMOS image sensor put inside digital film camera which says: "Cypress Semiconductor's CMOS image sensor has been designed into the 35mm Alexa digital motion-picture camera from ARRI, used to produce films including 3D movies and commercial shoots.".

Take a look also at the news release from Allegro Microsystems, Sensor IC withstands harsh automotive environments, as well as FPGA-based frame grabbers for image acquisition from Stemmer Imaging, and Carling switches target transportation industry from Master Distributors.
