?Temperature Sensor?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Outdoor cooler uses bi-polar thermostatic control from Laird Technologies, which we summarised at the time by saying "Laird Technologies has announced the release of its outdoor thermoelectric cooler series with bi-polar thermostatic control. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Photo IC for optical switching applications from Hamamatsu Photonics: "Hamamatsu Photonics has introduced a photo IC that is designed for optical switches and provides an analogue waveform output, proportional to the intensity of incident pulsed light. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Z-Communications - take a look at Oscillator achieves ultra-low phase noise which says: "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. ".

Take a look also at the news release from MSC Vertriebs, MSC distributes YDS DC/DC converters, as well as Linear introduces H-grade switching regulator from Linear Technology, and Rakon TCXOs feature power management from Rakon.
