Wind power, as an alternative to burning fossil fuels, is plentiful, renewable, widely distributed, clean, produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation, and uses little land. The net effects on the environment are far less problematic...
This energy-monitoring IC family eases the task of measuring both power and energy use of other ICs or circuits, integrating results for longer-term energy-consumption measurement.
A highly integrated, wide-VIN DC/DC buck regulator is available in an auto grade 3 mm × 2 mm VQFN and a commercial 5 mm × 4 mm HSOIC package.
Capacitors can provide vital ride-through (or hold-up) energy or mitigate ripple and noise in power-conversion circuits. Choosing the right type can profoundly affect a system’s overall size, cost, and performance.
Whether intended for a single car or an entire fleet of vehicles, a vehicle-tracking system requires an integrated power-management solution to reduce the tracker’s size.
Hybrid-cascode power transistors offer a convenient upgrade path from standard power MOSFETs and IGBTs when trying to leverage the performance advantages of wide-bandgap semiconductors.
A high-altitude unmanned-aerial-vehicle prototype, powered by solar panels and batteries, performs functions commonly attributed to spacecraft flying in low Earth orbits.
