The ElectronicsOnline Resource Library contains white papers, eBooks, webcasts, videos and technical papers to help you manage and solve work related problems. Select from a variety of application and technology related subjects, supplied by market-leading vendors or written by our editorial team.
The number and variety of automobile electronics and accessories is growing, fuelling the need for more advanced power components to support these electronics. These systems rely on multiple battery chemistries and can operate at different voltages.
With the ability to illuminate large areas, either indoors or outdoors, lighting engineers and designers are increasingly directing their attention towards the quality and controllability of the illumination.
The demand for high-fidelity audio continues to drive sound engineers for 32-bit audio solutions with higher frequency response, higher resolutions and greater signal purity. Much can be learnt from these next-gen designs.
Learn about the causes that can be attributed to an asymmetrical current distribution. Discover the influence of the driver concept used (individual or central driver) as well as the impedances contained in a system.
Understand the fundamentals of switching and multiplexing to build a smarter test system that can address your needs today and in the future.
This novel solution enables high voltage low current to be distributed throughout a system, minimising distribution losses, while providing low voltage high current direct from the 48 V input in the most efficient manner possible.
The design of the PCB, the housing and the anticipated end-use environment all play a major factor in the decision whether to use a coating or a resin.
Power Factor Corrected AC rectification has been addressed in a variety of ways over the past three decades. The wide variation of worldwide AC line voltages, however, has imposed significant design trade-offs.
Traditional TCO metrics for embedded systems are now worthless. For an accurate idea of lifetime costs it is now essential to factor in the fast-changing IoT landscape.
New compact solutions for device packaging, silicon integration and MOSFET technology work well with over a narrow voltage range. Efficiency and throughput power tends to drop off dramatically, however, over a moderate to high input range.
Smart cars continue to expand autonomous driving tasks that assist or even outright outperform humans. However, the question remains: Are system architects ensuring that there is an appropriate allocation of responsibility, visibility, and capability for emergency handling between driver and electronic control systems?
As humans, we love things to be personalised. We go to great lengths to show off our sense of style, good taste and purchasing power. With the advent of 3D printing, we could soon have the power to personalise our cars.
Specifying your power system to meet its peak requirement of a pulsed load is expensive, and results in unnecessarily large and heavy power supplies. The technique of power averaging allows power systems to be sized based on average power requirement.
Equipment and sensors built for environmental monitoring contend with a myriad of challenges; the lack of reliable power, inhospitable ambient conditions and poor communication channels to name but a few. However, there are key design considerations when building an apparatus to cater for these unforgiving conditions.
Stepper motors provide the small, low-cost and precise motion needed for countless small to medium appliances that surround us.
