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.

At 90W, Power over Ethernet Hits the Sweet Spot Barry Manz
The 802.3bt standard lets devices consume more power, which makes it a compelling solution for smart buildings and cities.

How Utilities Are Preparing for EVSE David Talbott
Analysts estimate that if every car and light truck on US roads today were an EV, the amount of power they would consume would equal the US’s entire power-generation capacity. What are utility companies doing to support EV charging needs?

EV Wireless Charging David Talbott
Proponents of wireless charging see it as a simpler, more convenient way to charge EVs because it eliminates the hassle of handling charging cables and offers a new way to charge vehicles at rest or in motion. But, is wireless charging practical, or is it just fantasy?

The Underlying Chemistry of Piezo Materials Liam Critchley
The electrical properties of both piezoelectric and piezoresistive materials change when subjected to mechanical deformation. Here, we show how and why these electrical changes are due to changes within the crystal structure at the atomic level and the chemistry involved with these changes.

Harnessing Energy with Nanogenerators Liam Critchley
Different nanogenerators can generate enough electricity to power a small device through kinetic movements within the device, or by harvesting thermal energy. Even though the amount of electricity generated is small, it is enough for many small remote monitoring devices.

The Chemistry of Energy Storage Systems Liam Critchley
Energy storage devices are serving an increasingly wide range of applications. Their recent performance improvements are driving this growth in popularity. The basic function and any performance enhancements are due to chemistry, especially electrochemistry. In this blog, we will detail why.
