?Signal Conditioning?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release QDR and DDR SRAMs for reducing power consumption from Cypress Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "Cypress Semiconductor has announced Quad Data Rate (QDR) and Double Data Rate (DDR) SRAMs at 36-Mbit and 18-Mbit densities, for networking use in medical imaging and military signal-processing.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release High slew-rate option for power supplies from Magna-Power Electronics: "Power supply expert Magna-Power Electronics has released a high slew-rate output option to meet the demands of fast-performance DC applications such as battery charging and photovoltaic emulation.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Allegro Microsystems - take a look at Sensor IC withstands harsh automotive environments which says: "Allegro Microsystems has launched the A1356, a user-programmable linear Hall-effect sensor IC with a pulse width modulated (PWM) output for automotive gear and clutch detection and position sensing.".

Take a look also at the news release from Samtec, Rugged wire cable system allows for blind mating, as well as Tektronix offers architecture for PCI Express 3.0 from Tektronix, and SPEC Pak enables environmental connections from Anderson Power Products.
