Solar cell shocks battery apps Product News 10/30/2003 Post a comment Clare, Inc. touts its CPC1810, the first member of its new solar cell family, as a high output device that delivers a voltage ten times greater than traditional competing products. Indeed, the cell's output is sufficient to charge a battery directly, according to the company, which builds its photovoltaic device on the company's advanced silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology.
MEMS: The Applications Triage News & Analysis 10/21/2003 Post a comment Emerging MEMS applications have one challenge in common with virtually all entrepreneurial technology companies: They must find a way across the chasm between the early adopters of new technology and the "early majority adopters." If they don't, they becomeat besta niche company or application. Jack Shandle reports on a panel at the recent MEMS Executive Forum.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
