Vehicles provide a wide variety of sources to collect ambient energy, which can supply power to numerous applications.
This article will outline some of the ideas and techniques under development in the optical networking sector that will result in reduced power consumption.
Thermoelectric energy harvesting offers an attractive solution for many low-power applications.
When bio-circuits start making their way into our products, we will need to feed them. Imagine feeding your iPad. Until then our technology depends on electrical energy supplied through lines, batteries, and generators.
This article discusses Thermoelectric (TE) energy harvesting and TE energy harvesting system modules from CUI and Laird as well as a demo kit from EnOcean.
The performance, reliability, and design life of LED arrays depend heavily on proper thermal management
