The advent of high-bandwidth, highly spectral-efficient communication systems, such as IEEE 802.11g, has imposed tremendous challenges on power amplifier design. Since power amplifiers are often the most power-consuming block in a wireless system, their efficiency can have a determining impact on the battery lifetime of a system. (more…)

state-of-the-art in conversion of sunlight to electricity and how to help accelerate it.

In the next 60 minutes the sun will hit the earth with enough energy to meet all of the world’s power needs for one year … if only we could harness it. Solar photovoltaics (PV) is a simple solution to a huge problem facing the world, (more…)
