• “Knowledge is Power” - industry experts join National Semiconductor to conduct daily educational power management design seminars

• “SignalPATH TO SUCCESS” area showcases complete solutions for designers of test and measurement, industrial, automotive, medical, communications and consumer systems

Nov 1, 2006

November 1 , 2006 – National Semiconductor Corporation (NYSE: NSM) will showcase its latest high-performance analog solutions for a variety of applications at electronica 2006 in Munich, Germany, from November 14 -17. The company’s program in booth #506, Hall A4 includes new product announcements as well as daily educational seminars for power management design engineers.
Under the theme “SignalPATH TO SUCCESS,” 14 tables focused on test and measurement, medical, industrial control, automotive, professional video, communications and consumer applications will illustrate how National’s innovative portfolio of power management, data conversion, interface, amplifier and audio integrated circuits can solve tough design problems throughout the analog signal path.

National’s Spotlight Products
Among the demonstrations to be showcased at National's booth are an ultra-high-speed system for test and measurement, precision control for motor drives, the high-quality sound of National’s audio amplifiers in advanced portable applications, a complete high-definition/standard-definition (HD/SD) signal path for both analog and digital video content, the world’s first CPRI (Common Public Radio Interface) SerDes linking between a 3G basestation and antenna/radio, and a new industrial connectivity reference design.

For automotive, National will demonstrate new high-brightness LED drivers, a driver assistance camera featuring National’s serializer/deserializer (SerDes), an infotainment LCD display and a hands free car kit.

National’s Featured Speakers Show Knowledge is Power
