This paper introduces several new concepts for micro-power chip design. These
concepts are based on the fundamental power distribution and energy storage
techniques deployed in advanced power grid architectures.
Increasing the operating frequency, or using more powerful, higher density VLSI ICs or both, achieves increased system performance, but increasing the performance level inevitably increases power consumption. One option to
reduce system-level power consumption is to use low static power devices.
Power consumption also can be controlled during system operation depending upon the processing load. This latter approach is called Dynamic Power Management. Learn more.
Batteries provide power to many different applications across a wide range of industries. In many of these applications, a charging connector is difficult or impossible to use. For example, some products require sealed enclosures to protect sensitive electronics from harsh environments and to allow for convenient cleaning or sterilization. Other products may simply be too small to include a connector, and it is better to forget about charging with wires in products where the battery-powered application includes movement or rotation. Wireless charging adds value, reliability and robustness in these and other applications.
Cars are getting smarter, is an understatement. Cars are getting uber-smart, is the truth. All aspects of the modern car, from the powertrain to infotainment, are wedded to electronics, communications technology and a good deal of IT too, in the journey towards making driving—even on Indian roads—a really safe, pleasurable and sustainable experience. Here, in this article, we look at some of the multi-faceted roles a modern car plays.
This document focuses on integrated, fully-differential amplifiers, their inherent advantages, and their proper use. learn about fully-differential amplifier architecture and the similarities and differences from standard operational amplifiers, their voltage definitions, and basic signal conditioning circuits. The circuit analysis (including noise analysis) provides a deeper understanding of circuit operation, enabling the designer to go beyond the basics. Also, the document discusses various application circuits for interfacing to differential ADC inputs, antialias filtering, and driving transmission lines.
This application note describes detail on the interface between the LC and LMC. It looks at a typical system that uses this controller. It also discusses the timing constraints and LMC controller requirements.
