A look at why equivalent series resistance (ESR) has become an important criterion in DC/DC converter design and the role of ceramic and other capacitors.
A passive network of inductors and capacitors can provide much of the power supply filtering required for an Industrial IoT firewall system.
Reviewing the use of RF to heat (as with inductive stove tops), weld, and seal metallic objects with electromagnetic induction along with the parts used.
One antenna serves the needs of multiple front-ends/power amplifiers by separating an incoming signal via bandpass filters into two or more constituent bands.
Reviewing low-leakage electrolytic capacitors to high-performance supercapacitors that address the primary concern of leakage in energy harvesting applications.
Examining the role of supercapacitors in Internet of Things (IoT) designs and how their chemistry allows them to provide support for burst activity.
A listing of some of the new products revealed at APEC (Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition). Suppliers include Cree, AVX, ON Semi and more.
A key aspect to the use of LEDs for lighting is that power requirements are significantly different than for compact fluorescent and incandescent bulbs.
LED lighting system interconnect options for different application requirements.
Designing an LED lighting system is becoming a more complex task as designs incorporate electronics for LED dimming, color, wireless control, and system "intelligence."
Energy budgets are one of the biggest challenges in the design of remote sensing and control platforms.
Supercapacitors offer performance characteristics that are suited for energy-harvesting environments.
