Controller makes power supply redundancy easy
News & Analysis  
1/5/2004   Post a comment
Traditional methods for connecting redundant power supplies usually involve placing a diode in series with each power supply output and tying either the cathodes or anodes, depending on whether the power supply is positive or negative, together at the load. This is commonly referred to as diode OR-ing and, although simple, is far from an ideal solution. In this article (intended for EE Times' InFocus section on backplane power management), a TI engineer offers a more efficient means of coupling
Mesh networks gather steam with standards

1/5/2004   Post a comment
Many organizations recognize the value that a wireless mesh network can provide, but are unsure whether they should implement one that is managed or ad hoc. The decision revolves around how to implement an authentic network without wires: one that is scalable, secure, managed and architected for performance. The need for mesh networking and its many inherent advantages has led to a call for standards in ad hoc networks that should solve many of the outstanding issues.
Coax chipset enables home net backbones

chip set from startup Entropic Communications lets end users turn their coaxial connections into a backbone network in the home. Wireless connections-mostly wireless-LAN links-are quickly becoming the de facto approach for distributing broadband connections and multimedia content from a router to a node, such as a laptop. But Wi-Fi systems struggle to penetrate some walls and thus fall short in providing total coverage in a home. That coverage issue will loom larger as end users start to distri
