Texas Instruments bq25570 Ultra Low Power Harvester Power Management IC

Texas Instruments bq25570 Ultra Low Power
Harvester Power Management IC

Texas Instruments bq25570 Ultra Low Power Harvester Power Management IC is a highly integrated energy harvesting Nano-Power management solution that is well suited for meeting the special needs of ultra low power applications. The product is specifically designed to efficiently acquire and manage the microwatts (μW) to milliwatts (mW) of power generated from a variety of DC sources like photovoltaic (solar) or thermal electric generators. The bq25570 is the first device of its kind to implement a highly efficient boost converter/charger with a nano-powered buck converter targeted toward products and systems, such as wireless sensor networks (WSN) which have stringent power and operational demands.

bq25570EVM-206 Evaluation Module (EVM)

Texas Instruments bq25570EVM-206 Evaluation Module (EVM) is a complete module for evaluating the bq25570 energy harvesting charger for storage elements like single-cell Li-Ion/Polymer batteries or super-capacitors. It is intended to be powered by high impedance supplies, such as solar panels, thermo-electric generators (TEGs) or piezoelectric generators. The bq25570 regulates its input voltage so that it will not collapse its input source while charging the storage element up to a set voltage point. A power good output indicates when the charger's storage element reaches a user set voltage level. The bq25570 has an integrated buck regulator that provides a regulated output from the charger output. With minimum changes, the EVM can also be configured as an ultra-low power boost converter. It can then regulate the output voltage from a low impedance source, while simultaneously providing a second output voltage from the buck regulator.
