Bendable batteries run on body-inspired liquids

Bendable batteries run on body-inspired liquids
Researchers in China have engineered bendable batteries that can run on body-inspired liquids such as normal IV saline solution and cell-culture medium. In their work, published in the journal Chem, the authors designed alternatives to lithium-ion batteries by focusing on the mechanical-stress demands of wearable electronics such as smartwatches and the safety requirements of implantable electronics.

Applications are changing with the times so why aren't batteries?

Applications are changing with the times so why aren't batteries?
Human beings are definitely creatures of habit. This is especially the case when it comes to buying consumables like batteries. We know batteries are important but we continue to buy cheap, subpar batteries that run out too quickly and simply cannot handle the heat. Michele Windsor, Global Marketing Manager for battery specialist Ultralife Corporation, explains the demands that three essential applications place on the humble 9V battery.

Improving power quality in the HVAC and medical sectors

Improving power quality in the HVAC and medical sectors
Power quality company, REO UK, has released a whitepaper addressing electrical interference and power quality problems in the food and beverage, HVAC and medical sectors. The whitepaper outlines the issues caused by technological development in each industry, as well as how electrical engineers and plant and facilities managers can mitigate these problems. Many of the electrical problems mentioned in the whitepaper, such as harmonics and power line interference, have traditionally been synonymous with industrial settings.

Medically-certified DC/DC converter is certified 2MOPP

Medically-certified DC/DC converter is certified 2MOPP
A new fully medically-certified DC/DC converter has been developed by RECOM, which the company claims to be the first in its class to provide 2MOPP with 250VAC working voltage in a SIP7 package. This compact design offers engineers more freedom to develop their PCB layout, knowing that they will comply with the stringent regulations for medical certifications. It is certainly a challenge to design high performance, space-saving medical devices, while still complying with the latest medical safety and EMC regulations.

Battery-less pacemaker harvests energy wirelessly

Battery-less pacemaker harvests energy wirelessly
A wireless, battery-less pacemaker that can be implanted directly into a patient’s heart is being introduced by researchers from Rice University and their colleagues at the Texas Heart Institute (THI) at the IEEE’s International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Honolulu. The internal components of a battery-free pacemaker introduced this week by Rice University and the Texas Heart Institute.

VCA meets ultra-small requirements for precise control

VCA meets ultra-small requirements for precise control
Medical devices are often smaller and lighter in weight than the vast majority of applications that require some type of motion control, simply because they are often portable/mobile, hand-carried or lifted. Internal components needed for these devices are chosen carefully in order to make for the smallest overall device footprint. This poses unique challenges to component manufacturers supplying the medical market.
