Taiyo Yuden's Hybrid
LIC can be used as a standalone power source or as a load charge leveling
device to increase the life of the main power source such as a dry battery or
lithium primary battery.
These LICs provide an increased maximum rated voltage of 3.8V. Lithium
pre-doping stores lithium ions at the anode in advance and enables energy to
be used more efficiently and cycle life to be increased.
The LIC is designed for use as a storage power source along with solar cells,
fuel cells, generators and other applications taking advantage of the LIC's rapid discharge. It can also be used as a power source for
small devices, including toys, measuring equipment and machine tools.
The LIC is available in 3
capacitances: 40, 100 and 200F. Operating temperatures range from -25 - +60C
and they do not contain heavy metals such as such as Cd, Hg or Pb.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
