|Low Power design requires optimization. What products are available for low-power designs?||Energy from renewable resources is inexhaustible and clean.||The harvesting of ambient energy requires only a few basic components.|
Low-power, ultra-low-power, nano-power -- terms we see in just about every new product introduction, data sheet, or specifications. Clearly, the low-power spec of semiconductor devices today is critical as portable, battery-powered devices are seeing a high level of growth; this trend is expected to continue. But where are we at now? Is the current generation of low-power devices meeting your needs or do you need even lower power consumption to meet the needs of your designs? If so, what level of low-power consumption would you like to see?
Typically, car batteries can last for up to five to six years, which would then need to be replaced, but sometimes sooner, if they get worn out quickly and easily. Engineers working for Tesla are more...
It’s often said that supercapacitors are the future of energy storage, but for that statement to become reality, supercapacitor performance needs to increase greatly, and that is just what more...
This is a short follow-up to Experimenting with MOSFETS: Total Gate Charge where I looked at 'total gate charge' for an IRF730, an n-channel power MOSFET. Since I still had the test board more...
On July 18th, New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo granted contracts for two offshore wind projects based off Long Island, expecting to reach 1,200 megawatts in capacity. The deal is the largest more...
