power consumption decrease
 

"BMI160 is the first state of the art Inertial Measurement Unit (combining Accelerometer and Gyroscope) that runs below 1 mA in full operation mode. This opens up a wide variety of applications that were so far not possible due to power restrictions. At the same time the BMI160 implements step counting in hardware reducing the required power consumption to only 20uA."

 

That's a great result in terms of power consumption, the battery time to charge will be increased accordingly I guess.

Re: success of wearable technologies
I absolutely agree with you. The electronics will play an important role and this will be progressively increasing in time.

power saving
"So what can we do about it? Again the answer is simple: save power. The engineers are challenged more than ever to design extremely low power systems."

 

Agreed, I would add that another strategy is the wireless charging that make possible to recharge batteries in a wireless mode.

success of wearable technologies
"I am absolutely convinced that wearable electronics will change the way people communicate, work and spend their free time. In fact the distinction between private and work life that has been changed by mobile electronics will become further obscured by wearable electronics"

 

I absolutely agree with you. This technology is very promising because it could really improve the life of customers , by monitoring their health and thus making their lives healthier and safer. The integrated chips are perfect to be inserted in wearable applications due to their high level of integration. The wearable electronics may really improve our lives.

This article explains how the latest-generation SiC FETs are ideally suited to new inverter designs with lower losses than IGBTs and proven robustness against short circuits, even at high temperatures and under repetitive stress
There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
