Adaptive Cell Converter Topology Enables Constant Efficiency in PFC Applications Download White Paper 626Ko

Power Factor Corrected AC rectification has been addressed in a variety of ways over the past three decades; however, the wide variation of worldwide AC line has imposed significant design trade-offs. This paper explains how the Vicor PFM converter represents a breakthrough by analyzing the converter structure at three different levels of detail: in a classic bottom-up approach, three different “magnification factors” will be applied to the same structure.

This month, Cherry is giving away five of its Energy Harvesting Evaluation kits, worth over 266 Euros each, for EETimes Europe's readers to win. Cherry's energy harvesting technology benefit mostly applications where a complex wire assembly and/or batteries would be inappropriate.

The required RF-energy is created by the mechanical actuation of the switch and the data is transmitted wirelessly using RF-technology. The technology is very easy to install, fit and forget, with two standardised package versions for industrial applications: a rocker switch for actuation by hand and a snap-action switch for mechanical actuation.
