An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release MU-D1-R radio-transceiver modem for industrial use from Low Power Radio Solutions, which we summarised at the time by saying "LPRS has announced the introduction of the Circuit Design MU-D1-R 915MHz, embedded low-power radio-transceiver modem for industrial use that complies with US FCC Part 15.247. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Wavesurfer oscilloscopes in 200MHz-1GHz bandwidth from Lecroy: "Lecroy has launched a line of Wavesurfer MXs-B and MSO MXs-B oscilloscopes ranging from 200MHz to 1GHz bandwidth. ".

In January 2011, we covered the news from Texas Instruments - take a look at Value Line MCUs support advanced applications which says: "Texas Instruments has launched 64 ultra-low-power MSP430 Value Line microcontrollers (MCUs) that are said to offer 16-bit performance at an 8-bit price.".

Take a look also at the news release from Texas Instruments, Zigbee network processor for the home automation, as well as Logic analyser and signal generator in one package from Saelig, and Bridge chip range for USB/(HID)-USB connectivity from Silicon Laboratories.
