I would like to see more development in the ultra/super capacitor arena. I used some in a project to replace a 9V battery, and they worked great. I will admit that the Joule density wasn't quite the same, but the recharge time was the balancing benefit. I would like to see extremely small 5V - 100F caps. The potential in such a cap would make it quite popular. I would have to agree, caps are the way to go for mobile devices. However, more energy elegance needs to be applied to these devices. Right now it is pretty brute force.. need more battery life?... install a bigger battery.
As others have posted, this does seem to be brochure quality. While a certain percentage of technical articles are written by those with a vested interest in promoting the technology (such as this one), most tend to be white-paper quality with a much higher percentage of background information...and then put the marketing spin on top of it to show how that particular product leads the industry. This one seems to have missed the first part.
While I appreciated learning about the uses and applications for ultracapacitors, some diagrams, description of the manufacturing process, or any other hard data would have rounded out the article for me.
Major changes are happening in the world of 3D printing and additive manufacturing materials, machines, and software. If the industry -- and the design engineers and OEMs it serves -- are to grow, all three areas must become much more tightly integrated.
Americans spent more than $60B on their pets in 2015. Folks are definitely spending their money on more than dog food. We’re spending on things like dog spas and fancy toys, and as you can imagine, the wearables market is becoming well represented here.
Time was when sports equipment was made only from common, everyday, low-tech materials. But now sports equipment has a new, high-tech ingredient that is helping players take their game to the next level.
