Designed for watching digital video on the go, the newest V Series portable video players have a 3.5-inch TFT LCD and extended battery life. For power management functions, the gigabeat relies on Freescale Semiconductor's MC13883 power management Integrated Circuit (IC). The mixed-signal chip integrates a lithium-ion battery charger with CEA-936 car kit interfacing support and a USB On-the-Go (OTG) transceiver. In addition to charging lithium-ion batteries through a USB connector, the IC has overvoltage protection for faults from high-voltage charging sources.

Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
