Organic polymer solar cells show potential to offer power to distant microwatt
sensors, wearable technology and the Wi-Fi-connected devices creating the Internet of Things, while they cannot match the durability and productivity of inorganic silicon-based solar cells.
A reasonable unit of measure is microWatt
per centimeter square ([micro]W/[cm.
And while it would be entirely feasible to put a million solar cells on a chip where there is only one now, you wouldn't get a microwatt
more electrical output.
Conservatively, our baseline design is done with a 10 microwatt
Peter Tavner, head of engineering at Durham University, was speaking after a team from the Atomic Energy Commission in Grenoble, France, got about one microwatt
of power from the smallest water drops.
This device uses less than a microwatt
," Irazoqui marvels.
UWB's other big advantage is low, 100 microwatt
, power consumption.
The Medixair can generate 22,500 microwatt
seconds per square centimetre - enough to kill E Coli, which has a 'kill energy' of 5,400 microwatts
, TB, which has a kill energy of 6,200 microwatts
and the Staphylococcus Aureus - the bug linked behind MRSA - which has a kill energy of 2,600 microwatts
WLAN transceiver technology coupled with a powerful, scalable, network aware application processing functionality offer OEM's the ultimate flexibility and maximum power savings.
We almost never see more than 1 microwatt
per square centimeter from a base station," Mantiply said.
Lighting Controller from Lutron Electronics Co.
Fixture-mounted lighting controllers, such as Lutron's microWATT
, combine signals from daylight sensors, occupant sensors, time switches, and manual controls.
