Not Your Grandpa’s UPS

Maybe I haven’t been paying attention, but, when you talk to me about an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), I think big, bulky, and expensive. But great to have in earthquake country if you need your equipment either to stay alive or at least go down gracefully.

So it got my attention when I saw a 4×5-mm UPS for 50¢. It was recently announced by Cymbet, and it’s intended to keep microchips active if the power goes away. They claim the ability to keep things alive for hours or even weeks – obviously depending on the power consumption of the application.

You can get more info from their release… pretty straightforward…

Enabling the Flow of Data in the World of IoT

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and YAGEO Group

At the heart of our growing IoT ecosystem are high performance semiconductors, but integrated circuits alone cannot make a successful IoT system. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Peter Blais from KEMET and Ryan Wenzelman from Pulse about how passive components are crucial to the development of successful IoT frameworks. They take a closer look at RF, wired and power distribution aspects of IoT system development and investigate how YAGEO Group is advancing innovation in the world of IoT with a wide selection of passive components.
