The articles offers information on consumer electronics equipment and supplies in the United States. The linear regulator of National Semiconductor is optimized for powering analog, radio frequency signal-path integrated circuits. The Blueprint software for electronic system-level design automates the generation and management of control registers used in complex chip designs, as a source for efficiency improvements. The Intera front-end modules integrate the Load Insensitive Power Amplifier, a duplexer, a power detector, and filters into a 5x8-mm package. High-voltage integrated circuits are designed for the electroluminescent lamps of Supertex. For applications in networking and communications equipment, very-low-profile registered and unbuffered modules are available from Micron Technology.
