What does the ultracapacitor do better than anything else? Provide short-term high power for many, many cycles. There are not many applications better suited for that capability than engine cranking in a start-stop vehicle.

The new trend of urban city architecture is in the direction of the realization of a Smart City. This term indicates the possibility of integrating IOT technology and the smart grids energy management systems. This is the basic idea at the base of the IEEE Smart Cities initiative, that focuses on the integration of data shared with the cloud of smart ...

The Analog Aficionados party goes back more than 20 years, when Jim Williams would host an Analog Dinosaurs party at his house. My colleague, Paul Rako, re-started the tradition after a decade-long hiatus. It was especially poignant when both his mentor, analog great Bob Pease, and Jim died within a week of each other in 2011.

Battery management IC solutions for small battery packs are proliferating at a feverish rate with the Internet of Things. Solutions vary in functionality and integration level. However, especially in larger battery packs for industrial and automotive use, I find that many battery management controller solutions out there are optimally designed for ...

Small-power motor drives such as fan motors, dishwashers, circulation pumps, and major applications are constrained by challenging form-factors and lower standby current. There are a large number of customers adopting smart power module solutions that reduce the mechanical heatsink needed plus the number of screws previously needed for the discrete ...

Previous articles in Planet Analog make mention of the "aliasing effect." Most EEs agree in the importance of the aliasing effect as a noise source and take for granted that anti-aliasing filters are a key part in the signal chain path. But, what is the aliasing effect? Where does it come from? Why does oversampling followed by digital filtering and ...
