National Semiconductor PowerWise® Solutions and the Future of Energy Utilization

Today’s technological civilization is driven by energy – either stored or captured, it is required to run our machines. Without energy and the proper method to convert it into useful power, much of our technological world would stop working. In 1908 William A. Smith stated, “Engineering is the science of economy, of conserving the energy, kinetic and potential, provided and stored up by nature for the use of man. It is the business of engineering to utilize this energy to the best advantage, so that there may be the least possible waste.”
