An Electronicstalk guide
Start with the news release Gain blocks for cellular bands GSM, CDMA and UMTS from Avago Technologies, which we summarised at the time by saying "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.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Valve connector simplifies manufacturing process from Molex: "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.".
In December 2010, we covered the news from Kontron - take a look at System host board for energy and medical sectors which says: "Kontron has introduced the PICMG 1.3 system host PCI-761, a slot-card-sized industrial server board equipped with the Intel Q57 Express chipset for asynchronous real-time applications.".
Take a look also at the news release from Allegro Microsystems, Sensor IC withstands harsh automotive environments, as well as Connector system for engine control units and more from Molex, and PCE-5125 board ideal for industrial applications from Advantech.
