Evaluating planar transformers for DC-DC converter designs.
Designers can choose from a number of current-sense transducer types, such as Hall sensors, Rogowski coils or current transformers, depending on application.
Learn how accurate power-line monitoring has emerged as a critical requirement not only centrally within the power grid itself but also at its edges.
Learn how the emergence of smart meters has created additional opportunities for theft and enabled a broader set of sophisticated tamper-detection mechanisms.
Pulse Electronics' newly optimized EP13 Plus transformer platform has increased abilities, allowing it to handle higher through-power.
A review of key performance metrics to consider when selecting the optimal antenna for your specific application.
A look at current transformers, Rogowski coils, Hall-Effect sensors and resistive shunts as options for energy measurement in devices needed on the smart grid.
Evidence was plentiful throughout the four-day 2013 Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, that the world’s wireless mobile ecosystem continues to expand without abeyance.
This article interexamines the trade-offs between ference, range, and speed that need to be considered when choosing to operate in the 5 GHz band or the 2.4 GHz band.
Wireless solutions are becoming the primary networking interface for mobile devices, and are now migrating to stationary devices in both consumer and industrial applications.
The wide range of RF protocol choices available to embedded developers makes the already complex choice of antennas that much more difficult.
Powerline filters protect expensive circuitry from potentially damaging power surges, as well as protecting the AC line from excessive noise conducted back into it from a noisy power converter.
