?Wireless Ethernet?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Monitoring system features Nordic transceivers from Nordic Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "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.". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release SoC ICs for cable and terrestrial set-top boxes from ST Microelectronics: "STMicroelectronics has unveied the STi7162 and STi5262, two System-on-Chip ICs allowing standard-definition (SD) or high-definition (HD) equipment to share the same printed-circuit-board (PCB) design.".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Cypress Semiconductor - take a look at QDR and DDR SRAMs for reducing power consumption which says: "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.".

Take a look also at the news release from Ocean Blue, Ocean Blue SoCs suited for connected TV products, as well as Gain blocks for cellular bands GSM, CDMA and UMTS from Avago Technologies, and VGA for wireless infrastructure transceivers from Maxim Integrated Products.
