Flexible Development of Energy Harvesting Wireless Solutions

Posted on 30 April 2013

      Compared to wired systems, wireless offers far greater flexibility and convenience in home and building automation, as well as in industrial installations. In particular, batteryless energy harvesting wireless technology scores with no maintenance and a sustainable power supply. That’s an important reason for manufacturers (OEMs) and developers to consider this green technology [...]

Advances in Power Devices Driving Class-D Amplifier Progress

Posted on 25 February 2013

      The success of class-D audio amplifiers in important home, in-car and portable markets has brought new opportunities for engineers to explore new design avenues and so differentiate their products from those of competitors. Class-AB amplifier design, on the other hand, now offers few such opportunities and brings size, weight and power penalties [...]
