iSim Online Designer

Advanced design tool for creating complex solutions, this is available both as a software download or an online app.

Capture schematic, view waveforms, perform application analysis and more. It is an interactive web-based design tool for selecting and simulating devices from Intersil’s broad portfolio. (power management devices and operational amplifiers.)

Remote Strain Gauge Reference Design

Remote Strain Gauge Reference Design

“Intersil’s applications engineer, Daniel Goodhew, presents the remote strain gauge reference design using Nextreme’s thermal energy harvester and Intersil’s low power, low noise chopper amplifier.”

History

The original Intersil was founded in 1967. After being acquired by General Electric Corp in 1981, it was sold to Harris Corporation in 1988, at which point the name was retired. Intersil at Wikipedia.

My own analog design carrer (while in college) started with national semiconductor databooks and Intersil CMOS Hot ideas.

Electronic Components Industry Association – ECIA

The National Electronic Distributors Association (NEDA) and the Electronic Components Association (ECA) have consolidated forces to form the Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA), bringing together all of the elements of the electronic components supply chain – component manufacturers, their distributors and their independent manufacturer representatives.

Electronic Components Industry Association – ECIA

ECIA holds accreditation rights through ANSI, the American National Standards Institute, under the mark “EIA”. Any standards committee choosing to develop an American National Standard may process the work through the ECIA accreditation.

“The Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) works to promote and improve the business environment for the authorized sale of electronic components.”

ARMADA family of application processors

Marvell’s CPUs deliver higher performance and lower power dissipation while providing full software compatibility to all ARM-based applications. ARAMADA is suitable for many applications such as netbooks, smartphones, and intelligent connected displays.

Plugcomputer

What is a Plugcomputer ?

A plug computer is a tiny, low power server, intended to provide network-based services within the home. It is an always-on system, and can serve data and applications to computing devices within the home. It can also be a bridge between home computing devices and Internet-based services.

The GUI Plug SD card allows SheevaPlug to boot into Debian Squeeze with Gnome Desktop installed and ready to connect your mimo monitor, 4Gb and 8Gb SD cards with GUI Plug preinstalled are available. Connection to the home network is via Gigabit Ethernet, and offers desktop class performance. – From
