Semiconductors and modules graced the halls of Electronica 2022. Here are some of those announced at this year’s event.
Battery selection for a given wireless Internet of Things (IoT) node or wearables design is complex. Among the important factors are: how long the device is expected to operate with a single battery; the choice between various primary and secondary battery chemistries; the nominal and cut-off voltage of the electronics; the energy/current consumption profile, the […]
QuantumDrive, LLC has signed an exclusive license with Face International Corporation for the use of Face’s patented Evercell thermal energy harvesting devices in self-powered quartz watches. Evercell power cells provide continuous power to quartz watches for their entire lives, eliminating the need for batteries. This is the first license to Evercell technology that Face has granted. […]
Rutronik, a leading global broad-line stocking distributor of a comprehensive range of electronic components, semiconductors, and products and technology solutions for IoT and embedded systems, will be showcasing product highlights from its four vertical segments: Automotive, Embedded, Power, and Smart at 16 different counters in Hall C3-312 and in Hall C4-434. The distributor’s team of field […]
Forecasters may shock and awe with estimates of 20.4 billion connected devices by 2020, but wireless technologies today have still not met the long-range, inexpensive, ultra-ultra low power (read “almost no power”) requirements that will ultimately support those fantastic numbers. Enter the University of Washington (UW) researchers and their development of a wide-area backscatter device […]
Premier Farnell, The Development Distributor, has created an IoT Power Calculator that helps developers of IoT (Internet of Things) projects to understand the expected battery life of their IoT devices, and allows them to experiment with different components and software algorithms to determine their impact on battery life. Battery power is in increasing demand in IoT […]
How do you accurately measure power consumption when the leads of your multimeter add resistance to your measurement? How do you accurately measure the resistance of a device that’s low, (e.g., less than 10 ohms) when the leads of your multimeter add resistance? One way to get a more accurate reading is to use the […]
Synopsys, Inc. announced the immediate availability of a comprehensive low power reference kit for design and verification based on a bitcoin mining System-on-Chip (SoC) design. The detailed low power flow and accompanying reference kit covers all aspects of a typical SoC design flow, methodically stepping through all phases from RTL creation through final signoff. It […]
By Matt Smith, Head of Cortet Engineering. Colorado Offices As the Internet of Things (IoT) industry continues to expand, new information on emerging best practices, technical specifications and design considerations continues to flood the market. Here at CEL, one of our priorities is helping you navigate through the deluge of information and identify which technology […]
The latest STM32L496 and STM32L4A6 microcontrollers (MCU) from STMicroelectronics extend the unique fusion of ARM® Cortex®-M4F core performance and proprietary ultra-low-power technologies, adding larger memories, enhanced graphics support, extra peripherals, and increased power-saving flexibility. Bigger on-chip RAM, now up to 320 Kbytes, complements the newly added ST Chrom-ART Accelerator™ graphics engine for smoother display performance […]
