RF Energy Harvesting Chipset from Powercast
May 20, 2012
Powercast Corp., Pittsburgh, PA, offers the PCC210 RF-based wireless power chipset and licensable reference design for embedded, low-power, wireless charging applications. The chipset and reference design let you directly embed the functionality provided by the P1110 or P2110 Powerharvester receivers but with greater flexibility in terms of footprint and frequency selection. The chipset consists of the three custom chips for RF-to-DC conversion and power management. The licensable reference design converts RF energy to DC down to –12 dBm of input power over a 1 MHz to 6 GHz range and provides an output up to 5 V; it contains all design files needed to embed the Powerharvester functionality and 100 sample chipsets for prototyping.
