?Process Control?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Outdoor cooler uses bi-polar thermostatic control from Laird Technologies, which we summarised at the time by saying "Laird Technologies has announced the release of its outdoor thermoelectric cooler series with bi-polar thermostatic control. ". 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 Rakon - take a look at Rakon TCXOs feature power management which says: "Rakon has developed a range of digitally controlled temperature controlled crystal oscillator that can maximise battery life and minimise the electronic signature of military equipment. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Aimtec, Aimtec power supplies offer auto-recovery restart, as well as QDR and DDR SRAMs for reducing power consumption from Cypress Semiconductor, and Gain blocks for cellular bands GSM, CDMA and UMTS from Avago Technologies.
