Old Post of delabs
Oki Semiconductor - A full range of digital ICs from RTCs to MPUs and network devices.

"With his enterprising spirit, Kibataro Oki (1848-1906) was far ahead of his time in the late 1800s. In January 1881, convinced that the nation was about to enter the age of communications, he founded Meikosha, the origins of today's OKI."

The Communication Chips are used in Wireless LAN Modems, Satellite Communication, Cellular Infrastructure, Optical Transport and Datacenters.

The SX1243 is an ultra-low-cost, fully integrated FSK or OOK transmitter suitable for operation between 310 and 450 MHz, 860 and 870 MHz, as well as 902 and 928 MHz.

Semtech SX1243
It contains a frequency synthesizer which is a fractional-N sigma-delta PLL. For frequency modulation (FSK), the modulation is made inside the PLL bandwidth. For amplitude modulation (OOK), the modulation is performed by turning on and off the output PA.

The frequency reference used by the PLL is generated by a 22, 24 or 26 MHz crystal oscillator, depending on the frequency band of interest.

The Power Amplifier (PA), connected to the RFOUT pin, can deliver 0 dBm or +10 dBm in a 50 Ω load. Each of these two output powers need a specific matching network when efficiency needs to be optimized.

Semtech SX1243  - Low cost, low current +10dBm RF Transmitter, 310-928MHz

UBM TechInsights Takes a Closer Look at the RealSSD C300

"Inside the RealSSD C300 The controller is a Marvel 88SS9174, which is a relatively new chip. It provides the RealSSD C300 with next generation SATA-3 connectivity at 6Gb/s to accommodate for its extremely fast read speeds that overwhelm SATA-2 (3 Gb/s). This controller has two ARM9 processor cores that operate in parallel to balance the load on the drive, with one core handling host requests and the other handling requests to read and write to the NAND flash devices. The controller uses the Micron DDR3 SDRAM for caching data to more quickly and efficiently manage traffic."
