Powercast Lifetime Power® Energy Harvesting Development Kit for Battery Charging
The Powercast Lifetime Power® Energy Harvesting Development Kit for Battery Charging is a complete demonstration and development platform for wireless battery-charging over distance powered by RF energy (radio waves). This Powercast development kit features a THINERGY® Micro-Energy Cell with credit card-size form factor and extremely low leakage. The Lifetime Power Energy Harvesting Kit for Battery Charging includes a Texas Instruments eZ430-RF2500 wireless development tool for demonstration purposes. The kit's batteries are charged by the P2110 Powerharvester Receiver®, which converts RF energy, stores it into an intermediate capacitor and provides a pulsed, regulated voltage output that provides charged current to the attached storage. In this Powercast Lifetime Power kit, the TX91501 transmitter is the source of RF energy at 915MHz, but other sources from 850-950 MHz can also be used for power. A regulated load voltage is provided to power an application device.
