Sponsored by Digi-Key and Infineon Technologies: Today’s lighting systems are dominated by LED technology. Though it seems a relatively simple concept, lighting multiple LED arrays requires special driver ICs to maintain efficiency.
Silicon-carbide JFETs enable outstanding performance in protection circuits such as current limiters and solid-state circuit breakers. This article looks into the characteristics that make them so effective.
Researchers developed rubbery semiconductors for robotic and “smart” skins needed in gesture translation, haptic sensing for robotics, and implantable bioelectronics.
Dialog Semiconductor, aiming to reduce its dependence on slumping smartphone sales, rolled out a chip that can be programmed to perform many of the most fundamental analog, power and mixed signal functions in cars. The company said the...
When infused with a suitable electrolyte, chemically processed wood can function as an energy-harvesting transducer using low-grade (low temperature) heat as the energy source.
Increasing complexity in power grids and the adoption of smart grids will require enhancements in energy-storage systems, from molten-salt and flywheel to battery-based options, to manage the “flow.”
Quiet please! Paul Rako builds an analog circuit that sounds out a shush noise when the room gets too loud.
