Emerging ad-hoc wireless sensor nodes and other micro-scale applications demand long operational lives, small form factors, and total integration, which are next to impossible to fully achieve with conventional battery technologies. Efficient, power-moded, fully integrated systems inherently demand high peak-to-average power ratios (PAPRs), as in wireless sensor applications where telemetry is a power-consuming function with low duty-cycle operation. Lithium ion batteries (Li-Ion), while… CONTINUE READING
