Silicon Labs Energy Harvesting Reference Design

The Silicon Labs Energy Harvesting Reference Design demonstrates an extremely low power wireless sensor node operating from a solar energy harvesting source. This turn-key wireless sensor node solution is powered by an energy harvesting source. Developers can reuse this energy harvesting design extensively to implement any wireless sensor system. The Silicon Labs Energy Harvesting Reference Design is optimized for minimum power consumption. The design uses the power-efficient Si10xx wireless microcontroller. Ultra-low power modes and fast-wake-up capability of the MCU minimize power consumption. The flexible system design will accommodate other harvested energy sources in addition to solar. This Silicon Labs reference design makes it easy to bypass the solar source and connect other energy sources such as vibration (piezoelectric), thermal, and RF.


Kit Contents
  • Si1012 Energy Harvesting Wireless Sensor Node
  • EZRadioPRO® USB Dongle
  • ToolStick Base Adapter
  • 3-foot USB extension cable
  • Software loaded on PC to display the quantities that are measured by the MCU in the wireless sensor node:
    • Temperature (measured from the on-chip temperature sensor on the MCU)
    • Light level (measured from the voltage across the solar array)
    • Charge level (the amount of charge remaining in the battery)
