How Switched Reluctance Motors enable green designs Design How-To 7/27/2009 Post a comment The electronics industry continues to transition from designing with inefficient induction motors to Switched Reluctance Motors (SRMs) that offer high efficiency, elegant design and an ultra-compact size to accommodate the size and weight needs of today's electronics.
Driving higher levels of efficiency in motor designs Design How-To 7/21/2009 Post a comment With energy conservation as a key focus globally, efficiency in motor designs is a growing concern. With governmental regulations urging higher levels of efficiency, motor drives are becoming more sophisticated to meet this efficiency challenge.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
