An ultracompact MEMS accelerometer and a multi-band RF synthesizer from STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM) were selected as top products in the quarterly EETimes and eeProductCenter Ultimate Products Survey.
ST's LIS244AL low-g linear accelerometer was chosen as a Top Ten product in the Interconnect/Passives and Electromechanical category. ST's accelerometer won acclaim from editors and readers as a motion-sensing device that combines accuracy with low-power consumption for battery-powered portable applications such as mobile phones, portable multimedia players and remote controls.
In RF and Microwave, EETimes' Ultimate Products list features ST's STW81103 RF synthesizer, the first single-chip device that operates up to 5 GHz, offering the highest frequency coverage in the market. ST's integrated RF synthesizer meets the increasing demand of equipment manufacturers for space and cost-efficient solutions in microwave-range radio applications, including wireless network infrastructures, CATV systems, and instrumentation and test equipment.
The Ultimate Products award is a peer-review program developed by EETimes and eeProductCenter. Each quarter the editors of eeProductCenter select the ten most significant new products in seven categories, and qualified readers are asked to score the products in terms of technical significance and usability.
