Here are some items of interest we found during June:

MinMax Technology

MSKW3000 Series

DC/DC converster

" gull-wing" SMT package.  Series consists of 14 models with input voltage ranges of 9-36VDC and 18-75VDC which provide precisely regulated output voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, ±5V, ±12V and ±15VDC.

HL Planartechnik  (www.hlplanar.com) - TSEV01C Digital infrared I2C temperature sensor for OEM usage

 OEM product development module with strong integration yielding a significant reduction of the outer dimensions of the sensor providing development capability for products with a strong reduction of power consumption.

A measurement range of 0°C to 50°C comes along with accuracy up to ±0.5°C. The I2C interface provides easy access to all measurement data. Additionally, two user-configurable threshold outputs may be used for alarm or controlling applications.

Global Positioning System
- From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wikipedia has updated and refined its explanation of GPS to be the best text we have found on the subject.  This is a must-read for product development involving GPS.  Particularly, their "Accuracy and Errors" section is extremely helpful
