?Raid Controller?

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 Power-management controller for standard MOSFETs from Texas Instruments: "Texas Instruments has introduced a power-management controller and driver for standard and logic-level N-channel MOSFETs used for low-voltage, secondary-side synchronous rectification. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Linear Technology - take a look at Voltage controller with integrated power MOSFET which says: "Linear Technology has introduced the LTC4219 5A Hot Swap controller with sense resistor, for protecting low-power boards from inrush current in many RAID, server, telecom and industrial applications.".

Take a look also at the news release from Kontron, System host board for energy and medical sectors, as well as Driver controller for illumination and signage from Diodes Incorporated, and Development board for HMI/automotive applications from Mistral Solutions.
