The literature concerning (Inductive) Power Management and methods of designing solutions is now quite rich. However, research and lab-scale demonstrators are not what practicing engineers are looking for. Industry is rather conservative and improvements of solutions are incremental. This book aims to deliver a clear message about the issues and aspects that should be considered in order to understand up-to-date solutions in the context of wireless devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).
It is not a textbook and references to textbooks will be given. It is not a collection of research articles: industrial reality is mostly considered. It is not a detailed analysis of the single best solution but a comprehensive presentation of typical solutions with insights into reasons for success in the background with room essentially left for trade-offs, design practice and industrial analysis of results. This work focuses on delivering insights into major trade-offs and presents various examples. The content is segmented into chapters for ease of access and to make the content more readily accessible for non-specialist readers.
