?Pressure Sensors?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Monitoring system features Nordic transceivers from Nordic Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "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.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release CMOS image sensor put inside digital film camera from Cypress Semiconductor: "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.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Maxim Integrated Products - take a look at Two-channel ADC for energy-harvesting sensors which says: "The MAX11645 two-channel ADC is suited for applications ranging from energy-harvesting sensors to portable consumer electronics and point-of-load monitoring in networking and computer systems. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Master Distributors, Carling switches target transportation industry, as well as Lord introduces SC-305 silicone encapsulant from Lord, and Ambient-light sensor suited for tablet PCs from Maxim Integrated Products.
