Implementing wearable systems electronics able to extend the life of batteries in designs or even entirely eliminate the need for replaceable batteries.
Discover how a primary battery can be used to supplement an energy harvesting, energy storage subsystem to create a longer power lifetime for an IoT product.
Switching voltage regulators designed for space-constrained applications offer efficiency and features on par with much larger devices.
Ambient light, thermal gradients, vibration/motion, or electromagnetic radiation can be harvested to power electronic devices.
Developing an energy budget that insures a product will achieve its target service life can be a bit of a "black art," but there are a few techniques that can help achieve the right balance of performance and power consumption.
Energy budgets are one of the biggest challenges in the design of remote sensing and control platforms.
Whether they're used in smart meters, wireless sensor nodes or mobile health monitoring products, microcontrollers are at the heart of many real-time applications which demand prompt response to real-world events.
Storage battery technology is diverse, with as many battery types for storing energy as there are mechanisms for extracting it from the environment.
