For most electronic systems, monitoring system voltages with a power-on reset (POR) ensures proper initialisation at power-up
For most electronic systems, monitoring system voltages with a power-on reset (POR) ensures proper initialisation at power-up. Detecting brownout conditions with a POR minimises possible code-execution problems that can corrupt memory
Biophan Technologies, a US company, has developed the Biothermal battery, based on the use of thermoelectric materials, using nanoscale-based, thin-film materials to convert thermal energy produced naturally by the human body into electrical energy.
Toshiba has announced the prototype of a highly compact direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) that can be integrated into devices as small as digital audio players and wireless headsets for mobile phones.
During the last 20 years, three basic battery rapid test methods have emerged. All methods are resistance based, a characteristic that reveals the battery's ability to deliver load current
The Motech PPS-120X GSM series dual channel DC source/current sink power supply/loads are suitable for testing mobile phone and other battery operated equipment, especially systems incorporating rechargeable batteries - in this case the device supplies charging power while checking battery drain at the same time.
Perth company Hitec Energy has been offered an Australian Government R&D start grant for a mineral extraction process that produces the key ingredient for alkaline batteries in a more cost-effective way.
A new type of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) is being developed by researchers at the Department of Energyâ€™s Sandia National Laboratories to help bring the goal of a micro fuel cell closer to realisation using diverse fuels like glucose, methanol, and hydrogen.
One of the most remarkable and novel discoveries in the last 400 years has been electricity. You may ask, "Has electricity been around that long?" The answer is yes, and perhaps much longer
Invensys Powerware has released a 6000 VA rackmount uninterruptible power system that resolves power anomalies and supplies maximum uptime protection to all connected servers, storage devices, networking equipment and medical devices.
