Switcher Power Loss EET Videos 4/3/2012 Post a comment Efficiency is a misleading number for comparison of switching regulators. The efficiency number can be manipulated by the input and output voltage, while power loss is more tightly tied to the actual circuit. This video explains why.
Virtual Remote Sense EET Videos 11/29/2010 Post a comment Compensating for unknown wire drops without remote sensing wires is now possible. The LT4180 continuously modulates the power supply output current to interrogate the line drop.
Energy Harvesting Applications EET Videos 8/27/2010 Post a comment New developments in ultralow power microcontrollers with their high level of integration are enabling monitoring systems which draw sub milliwatts of power. The LTC®3588-1 is a complete solution to energy harvesting systems.
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.
