Nanotechnology Is Inspiring Next-Gen Batteries Liam Critchley
Conventional Li-ion batteries have been the staple battery technology in many devices, from phones to handheld monitoring equipment, for many years. Rather than looking into new batteries, companies are looking to further improve the status quo by incorporating nanomaterials into Li-ion electrodes.

Bidirectional Power over Ethernet Charles Byers
Power over Ethernet combines data and power delivery over the same twisted pair cable. While standard PoE is unidirectional, driving energy from a PSE to a PD variants exist that are capable of transferring energy in either direction. This can have advantages in distributed IoT systems.

Accurate Fuel Gauging Through State-of-Charge Measurement Robert Huntley
Determining a battery’s state-of-charge using voltage alone is not an accurate method. By combining the open-circuit voltage, current flow, operating temperature, battery age, and discharge rate into a single algorithm, the Maxim MAX1730x series delivers a highly accurate fuel gauge for your product.

Solving BLDC Controller Design Challenges with the Qorvo PAC5556 Robert Huntley
Brushless DC motors have become a popular choice for use in a wide range of consumer and industrial appliances. Building a controller for a BLDC requires several key functions, all of which are combined in the single-package Qorvo PAC5556 Power Application Controller® (PAC™).

48V Electrical Systems Shift into High Gear TDK
The development of so-called “micro hybrid” and “mild hybrid systems” based on 48V power has shifted into high gear. Learn how versatile automotive 48V electrical systems will reduce CO2 emissions and usher in practical, super-efficient electrical subsystems.

A Lesson from the Wind and the Sun Paul Golata
Gather round and let me tell you a story about the power of the wind and sun. These are gifts for us to enjoy. ADI is leading the way for humanity to harness their collective power through energy storage systems

Why SiC Devices Are Ideal for Level 3 EV Charging Applications Robert Huntley
Charging an EV can be a lengthy process, however, Level 3 “fast” DC charging techniques promise much faster charging capabilities that reduce charging times to minutes instead of hours. This efficiency relies on high-speed power conversion, for which new wide-bandgap technologies are well suited.

Achieving a Single Higher Voltage from a Dual-Output DC/DC Converter Robert Huntley
As applications use more sophisticated devices, the demand for more complex supply voltages increases. One viable approach to meeting the requirement for a higher voltage rail includes the use of a dual-output DC/DC converter. This blog explains how to integrate this type of converter into your designs.

Selecting a No-Opto Flyback DC/DC Converter for Space-Constrained Designs Robert Huntley
Traditionally, isolated DC/DC flyback converters used an optocoupler or a third transformer winding for line regulation. This led to design complexity, increased cost, and the need for more PCB space. Simplify your design with a no-opto flyback converter IC to regain PCB space and lower your BOM cost.

USB-C Becomes Standard For Power Delivery Robert Huntley
Need to update your product and replace the legacy barrel power connector? Discover how you can transition your device designs using a simple, no-firmware, highly integrated, and USB-IF-certified method from Cypress and Molex.
