  • A ‘Swiss Army knife’ of temperature sensing ICs
  • @LTrammell---I would say that their device, in this case, is pretty transparent to the sensor as well as making the necessary corrections for some sensors. I would not say that is the case for all LT products, but it is for many.

  • Diamonds are a power IC’s best friend
  • @EdM4786094---I am sorry you feel that this looks like a paid advertisement, but I always have as my goal to provide EEs with technologies that could enhance their design capabilities----maybe my excitement about the technology sounds like a paid ad? Of course, I need to use Element Six images and some of their technical content to bring out the advantages of their synthetic diamond process for electronics usage---I do, however, add my own opinions and 42 years of electronics experience to enhance the article. If there is a better solution out there by anyone else with synthetic diamond, then please let me know.

  • Paper batteries: Are they for real?
  • @unbeatable0407----to answer both of your questions: The company’s differentiated technology platform is based on two breakthroughs: Custom printing inks for high energy and power electrodes for long life batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cell energy storage devices. An addressable, massively parallel celled architecture integrated device array with nano-scale links between components, achieved by high throughput printing techniques. These two novel technologies combine to enable a previously unimaginable design flexibility and virtually unlimited form factor capability from very small thin devices to large stacked cells or even large industrial wrapping products similar to vapor barrier materials used in the construction industry. PowerWrapper™ prototypes have been shown to continue to function when exposed to external mechanical stresses. The sheet architecture and print production technology is agnostic to either ultracapacitor (supercapacitor or EDLC), lithium battery or hybrid storage technology (EDLC and battery electrodes in one device), just as a battery casing can have different chemistries in it.

  • Nikola Tesla and Wireless Power future
  • @pander59---I sincerely apologize to you and all of my EDN audience for my haste in editing this article using only "Spell check". The EDN audience certainly deserves good technical and properly edited articles on EDN. I have properly edited the errors. As for more detail, Ground-breaking news and state-of-the art details I had included many links to other recent articles and websites for those added aspects and I will also be following this article up with many more such articles on this topic in the near future.

  • Ultra-low input bias current amplifier: Do we really need another one?
  • Hello RemiB782---please let me know what your experiences have been with Linear Technology regarding price. Have you been involved with any support questions and help with their applications staff? Please give me more information so we can understand your comment better.
