A new power-conversion method, called automatic efficiency enhancement (AEE), provides higher efficiency with lower output voltages in power supplies for systems such as tablets, servers, and solid-state drives.
In the MCU market space, power requirements vary greatly. Some applications will need an MCU device that performs best (current consumption and wakeup time) when off or mostly in the lowest possible power mode—think pulse oximeter or glucose meters....More
DC/DC converters are a continually-evolving class of circuits and devices, requiring more dynamic analysis than their predecessor linear regulators. This application note describes the evaluation of the main dynamic behaviors of a DC/DC buck converter....More
A number of years ago I did some work on a PABX. The device was electromechanical and far from state of the art, but the owner had been talked into spending a bunch of money expanding it and couldn’t justify scrapping it....More
In our generation of microcontroller-enhanced everything, it has been frustrating at best to see how often the capability of smart hardware has been foiled by the design of poorly purposed software....More
