RECENTLY INTRODUCED ANALOG (and related) PRODUCTS, October 2, 2009 edition

Among other unique attributes, the analog industry is characterized by a large number of new product releases. The leading vendors each release hundreds of new products per year, and even the smaller vendors release a large number of products.

Although we can't do full write-ups on each product, we don't want to ignore them either: you never know which product will ease your problem and simplify your design challenge. Therefore, we are providing this frequently updated summary listing along with links to the vendor's release or announcement. (Note that in most cases, press releases for analog products contain solid information and technical specifications, not just accolades and hype, and we won't list products that lack sufficient detail in their announcement.)
