?Standby Power Consumption?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Oscillator achieves ultra-low phase noise from Z-Communications, which we summarised at the time by saying "Z-Communications has announced an RoHS-compliant VCO (voltage-controlled oscillator) in S-band for digital radio and fixed wireless applications that require ultra-low phase noise performance. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Monitoring system features Nordic transceivers from Nordic Semiconductor: "Nordic Semiconductor has announced that Spantec has developed a fully comprehensive ANT+ telemedical remote monitoring system using Nordic nRF24AP2 eight-channel 2.4GHz ANT transceivers.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from MSC Vertriebs - take a look at MSC distributes YDS DC/DC converters which says: "MSC is now offering the 95DW-R3 series 20W DC/DC converters from YDS, which can be used in various measurement equipment and other device requiring a precisely regulated voltage. ".

Take a look also at the news release from Rakon, Rakon TCXOs feature power management, as well as RS Components launches power supply microsite from RS Components, and EASA certifies avionics unit with Altera processor from Altera.
