This paper features several electronic products. The aSC7511 intelligent thermal management sensor from Andigilog monitors temperature locally and remotely with an accuracy of +1°C. By sensing temperature more accurately, the unit improves overall performance while reducing power consumption in notebook PCs using Pentium 4, AMD Athlon, and Charon processors. Interlink Electronics' MicroNav interface components are designed for easy integration into cell phones, media players, and tablet PCs. Based on the manufacturer's patented Force Sensing Resistor technology, the components require minimal power and little or no added micro-circuitry for integration. Designed for integration into MP3 and other media players, cell phones, and general home entertainment controls, MicroNav Ring provides quick circular scrolling and menu navigation in a high-resolution, low-power package suitable for controlling streaming media, menus, long lists, and gaming functions.
