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 Linear introduces H-grade switching regulator from Linear Technology: "Linear Technology has announced a H-grade step-down switching regulator for load dump and cold-crank conditions commonly found in automotive applications as well as 24V industrial supplies.".

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 International Rectifier, International Rectifier offers automotive MOSFETs, as well as Self-protected MOSFETs for automotive applications from Diodes Incorporated, and SoC ICs for cable and terrestrial set-top boxes from ST Microelectronics.
