?Semiconductor Manufacturing?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Dates announced for National Electronics Week from National Electronics Week, which we summarised at the time by saying "NEW Events has announced that National Electronics Week 2011 is taking place from 12-13 April at the NEC Pavilion in Birmingham. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Gain blocks for cellular bands GSM, CDMA and UMTS from Avago Technologies: "Avago Technologies has expanded its high-performance power amplifier range with the MGA-31589 and MGA-31689 0.5-watt gain blocks, suitable for cellular infrastructure applications.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Molex - take a look at Valve connector simplifies manufacturing process which says: "Molex has expanded its range of externally threaded Brad mPm DIN valve connectors with the addition of Form C and Form Micro housings for hydraulics and pneumatics systems.".

Take a look also at the news release from Allegro Microsystems, Sensor IC withstands harsh automotive environments, as well as PC socket contact with stamped and rolled clip from Radiall, and Offline switcher IC eliminates no-load waste from Power Integrations.
