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.
