To help reduce EV battery cost, tight partnerships between battery manufacturers and suppliers are crucial—suppliers must deliver reliable formation/test solutions that enable manufacturers’ systems to achieve new levels of efficiency.
The ST1PS01 meets the needs of harvesting and battery-supplied applications, delivering up to 400 mA, while allowing users to dynamically select one of four output voltages via two digital control lines.
Devised by an MIT team, this technique uses a fluidic microchannel with mid-point constriction and a controlled electric field to assess a key characteristic of bacteria that correlates with their potential to generate electricity.
Allegro Microsystems introduced a line of motor drivers with integrated control algorithms, which could potentially curb costs and time-to-market for customers. The motor drivers contain field-oriented control—more commonly called FOC—algorithms...
Using a MEMS-based parallel-plate capacitor arrangement, NIST researchers devised a way to measure mid-range laser power via the radiation pressure exerted on the mirrored top plate and the resulting change in capacitance between plates.
Researchers from Sweden's Chalmers University of Technology have discovered a simple new tweak that could double the efficiency of organic electronics like OLED displays, plastic-based solar cells, and bioelectronics.
