I closed out International CES 2009 by visiting L-com and Luminous Devices, and by taking a quick stroll through the North, Central, and South Halls again ("quick" being a relative term). Overall, CES 2009 didn't exhibit much innovation, at least anything groundbreaking. Sixense has some potential. I'll have to keep my eye on that. Energizer's Zinc Air Prismatic Battery could make a big splash in the small electronics market. As previously mentioned, I'll be covering the "ZAP Battery" in a future Efficiency Zone column. A number of companies were showing off advanced 3D technology, and in this humble editor's opinion, the tech may finally have matured.
Featuring a high current density of 7.900 A/cm³ (129 A/in.³), the BMR451 voltage regulator from Ericsson Power is a digitally controlled, non-isolated voltage regulator rated to 40 A. The voltage regulator measures 30.850 × 20 × 8.200 mm (1.215" × 0.787" × 0.323"), offers a 4.5-V to 14-V input voltage range, a 0.6-V to 3.6-V output voltage range and an MTBF figure of 2.600 million hours. The BMR451 is priced at $22.50.
Coming in the 1U form factor, the C1U-W-1200-12-Tx and C1U-W-12-48-Tx AC/DC front end power supplies from Murata Power Solutions provide 1,200 W (110/220 VAC) of high density power. The supplies require 9.2 W/in.³ power density minimises space. The C1U-W-1200-12-Tx has a main output of 12 V and standby outputs of
I had appointments with Energizer and Analog Devices today, and Samsung gave us a "booth tour." Samsung wasn't being pretentious when they called it a "tour." Believe me, the booth looks like a small house, and must have cost a small fortune. Energizer gave me a demo of their new Zinc Air Primatic Battery, which I'll feature in a future Efficiency Zone. Analog Devices had a host of new products, including an innovative controller that will inevitably replace the Wiimote, the Sixense. We also found time to check out a little company called Microsoft. Enjoy the images!
