US researchers have developed a bacteria-powered battery on a single sheet of paper that can power disposable electronics.
The Vicor DCM in a VIA Package is a ruggedised, modular DC-DC converter, operating from an unregulated, wide-range input to generate an isolated and regulated high-efficiency output with high power density.
Scientists from the University of Wollongong have developed a flexible copper strip that could be the answer to powering electronic devices via the clothes we wear.
The Vicor DCM in a ChiP package is an isolated, regulated DC-DC converter, operating from an unregulated, wide range input to generate an isolated DC output.
All our lives we have relied on batteries in everything from mobile phones and cars to hand torches, but confidence in the technology has deteriorated of late.
Chinese scientists have reported the first fibres suitable for weaving into tailorable textiles that can capture and release solar energy.
The R&S HMC8015 power analyser is a compact tester for AC/DC load and standby current characterisation that enables measurements without additional tools such as a computer or remote infrastructure.
RECOM's 2 and 3 W AC/DC power supplies are specially designed to power smart building infrastructure 24/7 by offering compact sizes for easy installation, low standby power consumption (35 mW) and full household (IEC/EN60335), CE (LVD+EMC+RoHS2) and industrial safety certifications (IEC/EN/UL60950).
US researchers have been seeking a solution to a fundamental limitation of solar cells: the dark of the night.
Researchers from India's Jadavpur University have explored recycling fish by-products into an energy harvester for self-powered electronics.
US researchers have developed a design for harvesting body heat and converting it into electricity for use in wearable electronics.
Tesla boss Elon Musk has admitted that the current design and chemistry of the Tesla battery means this is quite close to the theoretical limits that it can achieve. From here it will become exponentially harder to increase the amount of energy a battery of the same size can store. So where could Tesla and other electric vehicle manufacturers go next?
