A PhD student from Loughborough University has helped shed light (no pun intended) on a solar panel puzzle that could lead to more efficient devices being developed.
Technology Dynamics has introduced the TTST-5000 Series of high DC input voltage DC-DC converters. The series features an input range of 375–420 VDC, making it suitable for harsh industrial, railway, military, automation, specialty vehicle, scientific and telecom applications.
Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced a three-slot 50 V/12 kW module for its iHP digital configurable high power system. The configurable intelligent high power system is designed for a wide range of medical and industrial applications.
Due to its excellent electrical conductivity and light and thin characteristics, single-layer graphene film is ideal for electronics that require batteries.
Researchers have discovered that caffeine can increase the efficiency of perovskite solar cells, enhancing their thermal stability and ability to convert light to electricity.
Japanese researchers have developed a new complex hydride lithium superionic conductor that could result in all-solid-state batteries with the highest energy density to date.
Designers of portable Li-ion battery-powered electronics now have a simplified and flexible way to add a USB Type-C (USB-C) charging system to their products with the MAX77860 3 A switchmode charger from Maxim Integrated Products.
Researchers have developed a fuel cell with the capacity to power electric vehicles such as planes, ships and submarines which have much higher energy requirements than electric cars.
Scientists used a process called singlet fission to produce and extend the life of harvestable light-generated electrons.
The Technology Dynamics CP-RK-BBU Series DC-UPS power supply systems are designed to provide clean, uninterrupted power to critical DC loads in the event of AC (utility) power loss.
The US National Science Foundation has awarded a US$219,312, two-year grant to push forward research into cutting-edge lithium-oxygen batteries.
RECOM's REC15E-Z series of 15 W isolated DC/DC converters features wide input ranges in a 1″ x 1″ case size. This is intended to save PCB space, while the wide input ranges increase flexibility by accepting several standard bus voltages.
