Technology recharges smartphones with urine

Technology recharges smartphones with urine
The microbial fuel cell technology, which is also inside the 'Pee Power' urinals developed at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol), now has the capacity to power up and recharge a smartphone. A world first, the improved system enables three hours of phone operation (outgoing call) for every six hours of charge time, with as little as 600ml (per charge) of urine.

91% efficient switching regulators do not require heat sinks

91% efficient switching regulators do not require heat sinks
RECOM has expanded its low-cost, highly-efficient R-78E switching regulator series with modules featuring 9, 12 and 15V output voltages. This series is designed to offer all of the advantages of a standard switching regulator (high efficiency, wide input range, accurate output voltage regulation) but at a lower cost.

Nano-electronic circuits have superconductivity

Nano-electronic circuits have superconductivity
Scientists at TU Delft, together with colleagues from the Tübingen University, have successfully created nano-electronic circuits using a recently discovered 2D superconductor. What makes this material unique is that its superconductivity can be turned on and off remotely, very much like the switching of electrical current in a transistor on a microchip.

Touchscreen controls improve efficiency for UPS system

Touchscreen controls improve efficiency for UPS system
Scalability for capacity or redundancy in all models of the Liebert eXM UPS system has been introduced by Emerson Network Power. The UPS, which also features a new touchscreen control panel, is ideal for IT spaces with medium power requirements looking to achieve lower first costs and ongoing operational savings, greater flexibility and shorter deployment schedules.

Chemically assembled transistors and circuits are a few atoms thick

Chemically assembled transistors and circuits are a few atoms thick
In an advance that helps pave the way for next-gen electronics and computing technologies—and possibly paper-thin gadgets —scientists with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory developed a way to chemically assemble transistors and circuits that are only a few atoms thick. What's more, their method yields functional structures at a scale large enough to begin thinking about real-world applications and commercial scalability.

16-pin IC socket relays feature pin spacing of 2.54mm

16-pin IC socket relays feature pin spacing of 2.54mm
The latest relays in Zettler's AZ822 and AZ832/AZ832P series are designed with pin spacing of 2.54mm to fit a standard 16-pin IC socket. With their small enclosure sizes of 20x9.8x12mm(AZ822) and 20.2x10x10.65mm (AZ832/AZ832P), they allow close packing density on PCBs.
