Use of battery-powered systems have expanded as consumers have migrated to portable phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, and more. One reason for this growth has been the availability of batteries and power-management ICs that provide the...
Next-generation data centers will employ processors, memory, and supporting circuits that require more power for its servers. Enter the Power Stamp Alliance’s proposed higher-power modules.
Having trouble tracking down differential linear hall effect ICs or prismatic supercapacitors for your latest power design? Sam Davis, the editor of Power Electronics Technology, has pulled together all the power electronics and other components...
By stretching and relaxing tightly twisted yarns made of carbon-based nanotube fibers, researchers devised a way to harvest and store the motion as electrical energy.
Low operating current is a factor in a wide range of applications from R&D to production. Measuring these low currents requires an instrument that provides the necessary long-term accuracy.
A multi-institutional team has developed a battery which overcomes the poor recharge performance of zinc-based cells.
The superior properties of graphene continue to push research into its application across the power landscape. One issue holds it back from going mainstream, though.
Battery limitations often impede the graphics and realistic experiences expected with today’s game playing, but an advanced buck-converter solution could remedy that problem.
Like all technology, the lithium-ion battery has evolved over few decades, incorporating new chemistries for different applications and increased performance.
