Overall design of the power-management subsystem involves several system-oriented issues. Adequate space must be available for the selected power supply. Make sure the power supply will fit in the space provided for it. Therefore, make sure the...
Under agreement with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, KULR will make and distribute Internal Short Circuit devices that reliably instigate lithium-ion cell failures.
Designing an energy harvesting system is not a straightforward process, and each portion of the circuit may require several iterations to perfect. You can simplify this design process with a prototyping kit.
The concept has a rather storied past, but practical fusion power always seems far from reality. However, inroads are being made on containment and a potential power plant.
Sensing current by measuring voltage across a resistor is simple and elegant, but issues arise with the electrical interface, sizing and selection, and thermal/mechanical considerations.
By using a single node for 1-Wire communication, temperature sensing, authentication, and memory storage are possible with harvested power from an NFC link.
Regulatory standards must be met because international and domestic standards are required for the power-management section of the end-item equipment. These standards vary from one country to another, so the power subsystem manufacturer and the...
Georgia Tech and Chalmers are both spearheading innovative initiatives in this area.
The venerable 78xx series continues to march on in an array of electronic devices, but competition in this space has heated up from multiple companies.
