TI has laid the groundwork for the widespread deployment of wireless sensors that scavenge energy from their environment, enabling applications in energy conservation, environmental monitoring, infrastructure management and much more.
TI’s KeyStone systems-on-a-chip devices are poised to enable widespread installation of cloud radio-access network technology, which promises to improve wireless network quality, reduce base station costs and slash energy consumption.
Thanks in part to TI’s innovative approach to reducing the cost of manufacturing energy-efficient LED bulbs, lighting will undergo a dramatic transformation in coming years, according to a leading TI technologist.
TI doesn’t make electric motors, it just makes motors more efficient. And that can have an impact throughout homes, businesses and factories, where motors consume as much as half of all the electricity used.
The expertise TI has developed in power management for mobile devices will increasingly find application elsewhere, including cars, home appliances and in the efficient transmission of power from the point of generation to the point of use.
Smart-building technology will greatly increase energy efficiency throughout homes and offices in coming years, and ventilation systems are the most promising place to start, followed by lighting.
If you don’t already use wireless charging for your mobile devices, you probably will soon, and TI is responsible for a number of innovations that have been combined in a single chip that will help transform how we keep our devices juiced.
