?Printed Circuit Board?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release TMPM36x microcontrollers for embedded applications from Toshiba Electronics, which we summarised at the time by saying "Toshiba Electronics Europe has expanded its range of high-performance 32-bit ARM Cortex-M3 microcontrollers with devices for embedded applications such as office equipment and industrial control.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release ZMD offers I/O channel for automation applications from ZMD: "ZMD has added the ZIOL2201 high-voltage I/O channel, which meets the physical layer requirements of sensor/actuator systems used in factory automation, to its line driver and level shifter I/O range.".

In February 2011, we covered the news from Texas Instruments - take a look at TLC59282 driver for LED display applications which says: "Texas Instruments has introduced a serial-controlled, 16-channel constant-current sink LED driver that is said to simplify design in LED display applications such as video displays and message boards.".

Take a look also at the news release from Excelsys Technologies, Ultra-compact LEDs for space-critical applications, as well as Converter modules for transportation systems from Power Sources Unlimited, and OKW extends range of pocket-size enclosures from OKW Enclosures.
