Unlike ordinary batteries, which take the same amount of time to charge no matter how many you have, quantum batteries should charge faster the more you have of them.
STMicroelectronics has devised a smart solar hybrid LED streetlight system, developed as a pilot project and implemented in the car park at one of its campuses.
The growth in wearable devices and the ageing population may seem like two disconnected trends, but what if they were connected?
Helios has added the RWS1000B and RWS1500B industrial AC-DC power supplies. The series is suitable for industrial, test and measurement, broadcast, communications and LED signage equipment.
The RAC15-K and RAC20-K series are PCB-mount AC/DC modules with ultralow energy losses, especially in light load conditions.
US researchers have developed a cathode material from iron fluoride that surpasses the capacity limits of traditional lithium-ion batteries.
Scientists in the US have developed a highly reversible, water-soluble material based on phenazine, an organic molecule used in dyes and antibiotics.
Vicor has released a bidirectional non-isolated fixed-ratio converter for hybrid 48/12 V power systems in data centre and automotive applications. The 2317 NBM is capable of providing up to 750 W continuously at 48 V from 12 V, or at 12 V from 48 V, with over 98% peak efficiency.
Magellan Power's Lithium Battery Bank for UPS applications uses lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are said to have several advantages over VRLA batteries.
Researchers have used non-traditional techniques to fashion a powerful 3D lithium-ion battery with a footprint on the order of 100 grains of salt.
The RFB, RFM and RFMM are SIP4 and SIP7 case DC/DC converters that are typically used in power isolation and voltage matching applications in board interfaces, which have become high-volume commodity applications.
