Passive Thermal Management Options for EMS Devices
Posted in Electronics, Thermal Management, Power Management, Medical, Features, MDB on Monday, 01 April 2013
High-frequency pulsed electromagnetic stimulation (EMS) devices are more powerful and effective than ever before. These devices are finding applications in many areas, including as treatments for stress and depression, osteoporosis, and soft tissue injuries. Electromagnetic therapies stimulate tissue and cell mass to recuperate faster. The base technology for pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) is to input electrical energy into copper windings to create a series of electromagnetic waves. The waves offer a non-invasive anti-inflammatory and accelerated healing treatment option. In many cases, these devices have a large metal content and need to dissipate hundreds of watts of heat to effectively generate and deliver pulsed electromagnetic waves.

Scaling Up Production of Graphene Micro-Supercapacitors
Posted in Batteries, Electronic Components, Board-Level Electronics, Power Supplies, Electronics, Power Management, Medical, News, MDB on Tuesday, 12 March 2013
The demand for ever-smaller electronic devices has led to the miniaturization of a variety of technologies, but energy-storage units, such as batteries and capacitors, have lagged behind. Now, researchers at UCLA say that they have developed an innovative technique using a DVD burner to fabricate micro-scale graphene-based supercapacitors, which can charge and discharge a hundred to a thousand times faster than standard batteries. These micro-supercapacitors, made from a one-atom–thick layer of graphitic carbon, can be easily manufactured and readily integrated into small devices such as next-generation pacemakers, they say.

New Method of Controlling Tiny Devices
Posted in Electronics, Power Management, Medical, News, MDB on Wednesday, 06 March 2013
Electromagnetic devices all require an electric current to create the magnetic fields that allow them to function. But as devices become smaller, being able to efficiently deliver a current to create magnetic fields becomes more difficult. Researchers at UCLA say that they have developed a method to switch tiny magnetic fields on and off with an electric field, instead of the traditional approach of running a current through a wire, which they say could lead to big changes in storing digital information and powering motors in small hand-held devices.
