California Eastern Laboratories (CEL), a Renesas Electronics Corp. (formerly known as NEC Electronics) partners in North America and Latin America, exclusively sells products manufactured by its Compound Semiconductor Devices Group (CSDBD). These products include RF components and RFICs, optocouplers, solid state relays, fiber lasers and detectors. CEL has extensive inventory, provideing engineering design and application support through its Design Center in Santa Clara, California. CEL also developed the MeshConnect ? family of IEEE 802.15.4 / ZigBee RF modules and transceiver ICs, which is a member of the ZigBee consortium.
STMicroelectronics' two new microcontroller product lines enhance the energy efficiency, functional integration and design flexibility of the STM32F4 basic product line high-end products to meet the technical requirements of high-performance embedded design. These STM32's latest microcontrollers operate at temperatures up to 125 ° C , featuring always-on sensors and general industrial equipment, providing a robust, reliable and cost-effective system upgrade for STM32F1 applications .
Linear introduces the LTC3897, a multiphase synchronous boost DC/DC controller with an input surge suppressor and an ideal diode controller. The boost controller drives two N-channel power MOSFET stages out of phase to reduce input and output capacitor requirements, allowing the use of inductors that are smaller than comparable single-phase solutions.
