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.
The manually operated ultrasonic welding machine DS20-S-plus is based on a flexible concept and is suitable for laboratories, prototyping and small series production of e.g. power electronics or special applications.
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.
