BELLEVUE, Wash. – 5G Americas, the industry trade association and voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas, announced the publication of the 5G Regulatory Policy Considerations
In this episode of the PSDCast, we're talking to Powercast about RF-based wireless charging, and we discuss their forthcoming consumer wireless charger, the Powerspot
When Li-ion batteries age, their performance drops. Current methods still require complex instrumented laboratory-based tests to determine how quickly and to which degree this occurs. In contrast, a procedure developed by Chemnitz University of Technology now enables quick and precise diagnosis. It ensures the
Linear Regulators are integrated circuits that step a voltage down from a higher voltage to a lower voltage without the need of an inductor. The low dropout linear regulator (LDO) is a special type of linear regulator in which the dropout voltage – the differential between the input-to-output voltages needed

In response to pressures to optimise energy efficiency throughout industry, a number of trends are emerging across the power landscape:
· In the automotive sector, we are seeing increased electrification of the power train and the growing adoption of hybrid, electric, plug-in
Figure 1. Extending the frequency and voltage range of a probe requires a front-end network of resistors and capacitors.
Low-power circuits combine high speed and low-power consumption in a single component, presenting a number of probing and testing challenges. Since many low-power devices are also high-speed systems, there is a need to test and verify their performance. Testing the low-power components for compliance with industry
Figure 1. Power rail voltages and tolerances required by ICs continue to decrease. These dynamics challenge traditional oscilloscope measurement approaches as the noise of the scope and probe system impairs the ability to make accurate measurements of small signals.
Development teams face increasing power integrity challenges. FPGAs, ASICs, and standard components semiconductor devices continue to increase in gate count. Each of the millions of gates on an integrated circuit requires current to switch. As devices can consume tens of amps and total power must be managed,
