Device Programmers

(96 companies)
Device programmers are used to program nonvolatile memory such as microcontrollers, erasable programmable read-only memory (EPROM), programmable logic devices (PLDs), programmable array logic (PAL), generic array logic (GAL) and other electrically programmable devices.

MEMS Devices

(43 companies)
MEMS devices integrate mechanical components, electronics, sensors and actuators on a semiconductor material, chip, or wafer.

RF Safeguarding Devices

(10 companies)
RF safeguarding devices are used to control machine operations by detecting changes in the RF field.
Programmable logic devices (PLD) are designed with configurable logic and flip-flops linked together with programmable interconnect. PLDs provide specific functions, including device-to-device interfacing, data communication, signal processing, data display, timing and control operations, and almost every other function a system must perform.
Lab-on-a-chip (LOC) devices are integrated semiconductors that serve as a laboratory for the testing and analysis of very small chemical and clinical samples.
Personal flotation devices (PFD) are wearable or throwable flotation devices used to keep a person afloat in water. They are used on all recreational, commercial and military watercraft as well as on aircraft and by workers who are working around or above water.

Device Drivers

(110 companies)
Device drivers are programs that provide the interface between general use software (such as an operating system) and specific hardware or software modules. With personal computers (PCs), drivers are often packaged as dynamic link library (DLL) files.
Shaft-hub locking devices frictionally clamp gears, pulleys, flywheels, and other components to a shaft without the need for threads or keys.
Computer mouse and other pointing devices are used to control the screen-based movement of a cursor or icon on a visual computer. This category includes mice, trackballs, and touch pads.
Interlocks and tag out devices "lock out" valves, electrical switches or other components. These devices are used typically during service or maintenance of machinery or process equipment.
Device programming services companies program FPGAs, ASICs, GALs, PALs, EPROMs and other electronic components. This programming is sometimes performed at facilities that assemble PCBs.

Loop Powered Devices

(20 companies)
Loop powered devices are electronic devices that can be connected in a transmitter loop, normally a current loop, without the need to have a separate or independent power source. Typical loop powered devices include sensors, transducers, transmitters, isolators, monitors, PLCs, and many field instruments.
Global positioning system (GPS) instruments and GPS devices are radio-navigational devices that provide accurate position information about objects on Earth, based on information from orbiting satellites.
Programmable logic devices (PLD) are digital devices with configurable logic and flip-flops linked together with programmable interconnect.
Complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs) are integrated circuits (ICs) or chips that application designers configure to implement digital hardware such as mobile phones. CPLDs can handle significantly larger designs than simple programmable logic devices (SPLDs), but provide less logic than field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).
