The fabric is an energy-harvesting device that turns vibrations produced from the smallest body movements in everyday life into electricity.
Rainer Zietlow travelled to Bolivia to climb the world's highest, still-passable mine road, at the Uturuncu volcano, using only electric power.
The products have a MTBF of 100,000 h and can work in ambient temperatures from -5 to +40°C (and humidity up to 95%).
Adding a polymer composite binder to the silicon anode of Li-ion batteries can significantly improve its structural stability.
Researchers used a catalysis strategy to produce two-electron storage in organic radical batteries — a big advance in improving their storage capability.
Researchers combined curcumin and gold nanoparticles to create an electrode that requires 100 times less energy to convert ethanol into electricity.
Würth Elektronik's MagI³C-FDSM fixed step-down regulator modules now cover all bus voltages from 12 up to 48 V.
The lightweight textile produced over 35 V using mild artificial movements that replicated slow body movements.
The WAF300 series is a compact and ruggedised range of DC/DC converters designed for harsh industrial environments, where issues such as vibration, dust or moisture may be present.
With the rapid uptake of solar PV, the low-voltage residential electricity network is being required to perform in ways it was never originally designed to perform.
Diotec's DI62061/2/3 series of high-precision low-dropout (LDO) voltage regulators are capable of supporting an extended operating temperature range of -40 to + 85°C.
The innovative honeycomb design enables light absorption from any angle and traps light inside the solar cell, enabling more energy to be generated.
Quantum technologies may promise new mechanisms to charge batteries at a faster rate.
The perovskite-based films shield high-performance perovskite solar cells from extreme heat and moisture, while also boosting their long-term stability.
