An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Driver controller for illumination and signage from Diodes Incorporated, which we summarised at the time by saying "Diodes Incorporated has designed the AL8400 linear LED driver controller to tightly regulate a variation of high-brightness LED currents via an external transistor.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Two-channel ADC for energy-harvesting sensors from Maxim Integrated Products: "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. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Saelig - take a look at Precision USB oscilloscope for scientific use which says: "Saelig has introduced the PS4227, a two-channel 100MHz precision USB oscilloscope with a real-time sampling rate of 250MSa/s that is suitable for general, scientific and field-service use.".

Take a look also at the news release from Linear Technology, DC/DC uModule PoL regulator for RAID systems, as well as FDS Software used in Fujitsu ASIC Reference Flow from Forte Design Systems, and DC/DC converter for inverting power supply apps from Linear Technology.
