?Voltage Regulators?

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 MSC distributes YDS DC/DC converters from MSC Vertriebs: "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. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Linear Technology - take a look at Linear introduces H-grade switching regulator which says: "Linear Technology has announced a H-grade step-down switching regulator for load dump and cold-crank conditions commonly found in automotive applications as well as 24V industrial supplies.".

Take a look also at the news release from RS Components, RS Components launches power supply microsite, as well as Self-protected MOSFETs for automotive applications from Diodes Incorporated, and Power-management controller for standard MOSFETs from Texas Instruments.
