Himax is expanding its product to timing controllers, chipset solutions for LCD TVs and monitors, LCOS projector solutions, power management ICs, CMOS image sensors, Infinite Color Technology and 2D to 3D solutions.
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announces the Power by LinearTM LTC2962-LTC2964 family, a family of 4-channel voltage monitors that are exceptionally accurate to increase system voltage margin and reliability. Traditional voltage monitors with an accuracy of 1% to 2% cannot be used with ASIC, FPGA, DSP, MCU, and MPU architectures operating down to 1V supply, otherwise valuable system voltage margins are reduced and the remaining load operating voltage range is reduced .
Melexis, a global microelectronics engineering company, announces the introduction of the new single-coil fan driver IC, the MLX90411, which delivers 600mA at 24V or 15W for a wide range of applications requiring high performance and low noise.
