Nine Products With Low Power Consumption Engineers are putting more complex power management strategies in place to reduce power consumption. We highlight both analog and digital approaches for power management in both battery and grid-powered applications, as well as how industry's insiders are addressing these issues.
Silicon Solutions Semiconductor companies have put significant effort into expanding analog power management ICs and developing digital solutions for managing power. One of the easiest strategies for advanced power management is simply taking advantage of the improvements that the newest circuits offer as off-the-shelf solutions.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
