POWER ON THE GO, April 12
Mobile devices are becoming more and more
intelligent - allowing users to watch movies on a mobile phone or laptop, or
navigate with a PDA - but at the same time they require increasing amounts of
power. To prevent the PC screen from suddenly going black, or the music from
being interrupted, Fraunhofer researchers are working on micro power engineering
solutions to provide the mobile power needed by modern communications devices.
The latest examples of their work can be seen at the Hanover Trade Fair.
