Harvested energy unleashed News & Analysis 12/15/2008 Post a comment For many, the concept of energy harvesting is tightly associated with the 'green' movement. While that's certainly one aspect, it overlooks a whole range of applications that have less to do with solving the world's so-called energy crisis and more to do with solving the problem of powering remote or embedded devices -- indefinitely. That is, without wires and without potentially expensive battery replacement, thereby truly cutting the wire.
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.
