Focus on power

As an introduction to the ESC conference, this article introduces energy harvesting.

The main issue will not be as much how to generate energy, but how to deliver it without problems to the circuits that need it. In this direction, a colleague of mine presented her PhD work recently. You can get her thesis here: "Power Management Circuits for Power Generators".


Here is a nice intro to switching power supply design.

Here is another one on power supply cycling to reduce consumption in CPLD designs.

A good introductory tutorial to power MOSFETs.

And another one on Power-over-Ethernet designs.


This post does a good job of looking into the recent Lithium ion battery developments from MIT.

And to finish, a look at renewable energy production and storage at Scientific American.
