A patent filing reveals Apple's endeavor of building solar power converters

According to Apple Balla, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office publishes an Apple patent application, which reveals about the tech giant’s endeavor of applying solar power converter in its different devices.

The patent filing states that Apple is not interested in constructing a new solar power structure, but wants to develop the current solar technology in order to use it in its devices.

The integrated power management system includes a system micro controller (SMC) and a charger. The power can go through either an AC-to-DC adapter or the photovoltaic cell of the solar panel. The charger’s power stages are connected with the step-down-DC-to-DC converters. A charger IC investigates the incoming power, convert it into an appropriate voltage and process it either into an input current loop, a battery current loop, an output voltage loop or an input voltage loop for controlling the charging procedure.

The solar power converters will be very useful for portable devices, as it will provide them not only with the enhanced power facility but also remove the necessity of using bulky external converters.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
