Keyboards are one of those objects that get incredibly dirty but are also really annoying/impossible to clean. So, whether it’s your kid’s sticky fingers or your mom’s habit of spilling tea (sorry, Mom), it might be time to check out the Logitech Washable Keyboard K310.
Powervation Inc., the provider of digital power management ICs and software that maximize power system efficiency and reduce system cost, will discuss digital adaptive control techniques at the upcoming Darnell’s Power Forum in September. Based around a study of
With ongoing interest in micro fuel cell development, what are some of the more promising technologies for portable power applications? Darnell’s Power Forum will highlight a number of trends in the “alternative” energy storage market.
Power supply technologies are often synergistic, and the success of one can be dependent on the success of another.
What will be the most important driver for the power electronics industry in the next few years: Architectures? Topologies? Materials? Applications? This is a hotly debated question that has no clear answers...
Wind power and photovoltaics get plenty of publicity, but how are the implementations taking place? Darnell’s Power Forum will feature several papers that look at some innovative applications in the alternative energy space.
Power electronics technologies are undergoing a more rapid evolution today than at any time in the past 30 years, including new system-on-chip packaging solutions.
Are there still opportunities where digital is not being exploited to its full benefit? Yes, and Darnell’s Power Forum is where these opportunities will be discussed. It’s no longer about what digital can do, but changing application demands.
Like most emerging technologies, energy harvesting is evolving to meet certain needs in specific applications. Even though some of this has already been established, challenges still remain that enterprising companies can take advantage of.
Will enhancement mode GaN transistors (eGaN) replace power MOSFET/IGBTs in power management applications? Alex Lidow, CEO of Efficient Power Conversion, believes it will and will explain why at Darnell’s Power Forum ’10.
Everyone in the power supply community wants to know power implications of the Smart Grid, but not much has been agreed upon. Darnell’s Power Forum ’10 will bring some clarity to this question with a session on “Enabling the Smart Grid”.
