slide 10 - you name your own 'power use profile' terms that are not in step with vendors names?? Seems to add yet another level of confusion ...
RUN -->> ACTIVE??
DEEP SLEEP -->> STANDBY??
Low power is very important for the reasons stated in class 1 as well as environmental and social reasons relating to energy use and lifestyle social determinants. An interesting and perhaps, at first glance, 'fun' application is monitoring or controlling temperature in a refrigerated vehicle I suppose. Perhaps there are bragging rights for keeping Eskimo pies at constant and sub-zero temperatures driving across the desert. Perhaps a better total energy efficiency is to eliminate the application.
Good engineers, being good citizens and wise stewards of the planet's energy sometimes might want to consider recommendations for a broader conservation of energy and resource utilization at the higher system levels.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
