Renewable energy depends on safe, reliable, and efficient energy storage systems (ESSs) to provide buffering between supply and demand. However, proving that an ESS is fit for purpose while complying with all relevant legislation is not a straightforward task. This article looks at the issues involved, and possible solutions.
All commercially available batteries are non-switching. But a new type of battery system from Switching Battery Inc. offers a glimpse of hope for electric vehicle charging from renewable energy directly.
STMicroelectronics has developed the amplifier TSV7722, which enhances energy efficiency in applications such as automotive smart mobility, solar panels, telecom infrastructure, and computer servers. The TSV7722 is included in ST’s 10-year longevity program that assures long-term component supply.
Electronic design automation (EDA) tools are available to engineers working at integrated circuit, printed circuit board, and system level. This article looks at how EDA has contributed to electronic product development until now, and how it might continue to do so in the future.
Intel and the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) today announced a three-year partnership to advance the development of domestically manufactured structured Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) platforms.
The 5G standard now being rolled out promises truly revolutionary advances in connectivity and communications. Equally, though, it is making significantly increased demands on the power electronics hardware that drives it. This article looks at why this is so, and how power electronics products are evolving to meet the challenge.
Rydberg atoms are among the most promising candidates in the race of realizing a working quantum computer. In the new collaborative project „QRydDemo“, researchers led by the University of Stuttgart aim to realize a Rydberg quantum computer demonstrator together with an industrial partner by 2025.
When people talk about “solar”, they’re usually referring to photovoltaics, the solar panels that you have probably seen sitting on several rooftops. But have you ever thought about how these actually work to generate clean electricity? This article takes a look at what a photovoltaic cell is, what it’s made from, the technology behind it, how it works, and more.
Next-generation auto radar technology, based on GF's 22FDX RF solution, will help make vehicles smarter and roads even safer than today. GLOBALFOUNDRIES, a global leader in specialty semiconductor manufacturing, and Bosch will partner to develop and manufacture next-generation automotive radar technology.
Experts believe that the 2020s will be a pivotal decade for the proliferation and widespread adoption of electric vehicles after several years of problems and uncertainty for what is a truly transformative market.
