Power-managing IC gets by charger-fed designs Product News 3/4/2004 Post a comment Linear Technology's LTC3455, designed as a complete power-management solution for handheld computers, digital cameras and MP3 players, features the company's PowerPath controller to enable a seamless transition between the battery, USB source or external supply that powers it. It thus does away with the significant power losses found in charger-fed designs. The multipurpose device, which contains two synchronous step-down DC/DC converters, USB power controller, thermally regulated lithium-ion ba
MPEG-1 encoder encodes and compresses analog A/V Product News 3/4/2004 Post a comment The MPEG104 board is a PC/104-Plus form factor MPEG-1 encoder, capable of capturing high-quality analog video and audio streams, encoding them in compressed MPEG-1, M-JPEG, or JPEG formats, and sending them to a host computer over a 32-bit PCI bus.
Cirrus Logic beefs-up ARM9-based embedded CPU line Product News 3/3/2004 Post a comment Adding fuel to the growing industry-wide support for the ARM architecture is Cirrus Logic's expanded ARM9-based embedded processor line, targeting a very wide range of applications that include digital media servers and audio/video jukeboxes.
AVX OXICap delivers high capacitance, ultra low ESR Product News 3/1/2004 Post a comment AVX Corp. has developed a new niobium oxide multi-anode (NOM) capacitor that delivers low equivalent series resistance (ESR), high capacitance, and high ripple current for applications such as power supply decoupling and high-speed data processing. Designated the OxiCap Series, this family of capacitors utilizes advanced technology to provide design engineers with a safe (non-burning) high resistance failure mode.
Designed for both differential and single-ended high-speed applications, a new surface-mount, 1.0-mm shielded connector system from ERNI Electronics Inc. saves board space in board-to-board connections with a 5-mm circuit board distance.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
