The Digital Side of DC Power

The Digital Side of DC Power
MATsolutions' insight:

While DC power supplies are inherently analog devices - generating DC values, steps, ramps, and arbitrary waveforms - there's a job for digital, too.

 

Looking for DC power supply units? Check out MATsolutions' inventory on our website.



Article Excerpt:


Though inherently analog, today's dc power supplies have digital characteristics and resemble HP's "One-Box Solution" supplies from the 1980s.


Nano-chimneys in graphene material may cool circuits

Nano-chimneys in graphene material may cool circuits
MATsolutions' insight:

Tackling heat retention in next-generation nano-electronics.



Article Excerpt:


Putting a cone-like ‘chimney’ between graphene and carbon nanotubes may be all that is required to eliminate a barrier that blocks heat from escaping, according to Rice University scientists. The theory offers a strategy to channel heat away from next-generation nanoelectronics.
