For many years we have wanted our electronics to drive thing smaller, faster and cheaper. The current trend (need) is to reduce our reliance on electricity generated from fossil fuels. Equipment and devices need to be more energy efficient. Electronic Times has a very interesting article that looks at the technologies that are, and will, play a major role in this power revolution. The areas discussed include: 3-dimensional transistor IC architecture; solid state LED lighting; superconducting cables within the electricity grid distribution system and SiC power devices.
