apec 2009 floor 1 

Held this year in Washington, DC, this year's APEC was very well attended, especially considering the economy. According to the event organizers, the attendance was down from 2008, but up from 2007, about 2,000 people.

The aisles were pretty well populated, but some floor-plan flow errors trapped some exhibitors in low-traffic zones. In all, it was a very good show, with lots of new devices. It's also nice to see some of our friends in the engineering community out and about.

 

BI Technologies 

 

Among the devices on display at their booth, BITechnologies had a new resistor network they're recently developed. www.bitechnologies.com 

 

 

 

 

 

 

freescale apec 2009 

 

At the Freescale booth, one of the more interesting items was a new boost converter that could function at voltages as low as 320 mV. This is especially useful in solar power and other energy-harvesting applications. www.freescale.com
