For solar applications, there are some nice chips that automatically limit current to keep operation in the most efficient oprating zone for the PV cell (MPPT). But they seem to be very expensive, and not widely stocked. For example, the LTC3105 is $3.33 at 2500, but only 419 in stock at Digi-Key. Do you know of any good chips that are inexpensive and available enough for consumer products?
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
