Wurth Electronics Energy Harvesting Solution To Go Kit
Wurth Electronics Energy Harvesting Solution To Go Kit provides easy access to energy harvesting technologies, helping developers to apply them in future batteryless products. This energy harvesting kit is a complete solution that allows developers to add energy harvesting, energy management, and storage to their application. The kit features an energy harvesting board and an Energy Micro Giant Gecko Starter Kit.
The energy harvesting board is a multi-source energy harvester with four Linear Technology voltage converters optimized for different energy sources -- solar, electromagnetic, piezo-electric, and thermal. The energy harvesting board offers two integrated energy sources to start the evaluation immediately: A solar cell (32mm x 50mm) and a thermogenerator (40mm x 40mm). Further external energy sources can also be added to the board. The Giant Gecko Starter Kit features the EFM32 Giant Gecko MCU, the most energy friendly microcontroller with the most comprehensive feature set: ARM Cortex™ M3, 48MHz, 1024KB Flash, 128KB RAM, USB, LCD Control, Low Energy Sense, and more. Giant Gecko Starter Kit can be connected by a 20 pin expansion header to the energy harvesting board. High-efficiency passive components from Wurth Electronics are integrated on the energy harvesting board as well as the Giant Gecko Starter Kit
