SOI technology reduces die size and parasitic capacitance, improving efficiency and enhancing reliability over a wide temperature range. It is particularly useful for power management ICs, including switching power supplies and LED drivers that...
Concerns persist regarding federal energy-research funding, which could dry up if the U.S. budget as presently constituted gets enough votes to pass.
Body heat applied to a thermoelectric generator plus energy harvesting to produce power for a wearable device achieves both minimization of form factor and power consumption.
Sixteen projects are being funded as part of two new ARPA-E programs.
