October 16, 2007
GreenPeak Technologies, Utrecht, The Netherlands, offers the 5 cm by 5 cm Lime CM-08 module that functions as a stand-alone communication system, integrating a transmitter/receiver, antenna, low-power mesh network software, and an energy harvesting interface. The module's energy harvesting interface lets it use power provided by external solar, electromagnetic, and piezoelectric transducers. Onboard power management circuits monitor the state of the energy harvesters and take appropriate actions to optimize the available energy. Modules create a low-power mesh network based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard and support ZigBee.
