Sensors Magazine Webinar: Energy Harvesting and Low Power Design and Applications

View the webinar recording here

Sensors are among the mostly frequently cited additions to connectivity in the Internet of Things (IoT) and certainly are one of the key enablers for wearable products of all sorts. However, wirelessly connected sensors pose a major problem: battery life. Energy harvesting (EH) provides an alternative to frequently changing batteries in wireless sensing applications. While EH is not a solution for every wireless sensing node, it is being successfully applied in industrial, consumer and other applications. In addition to a variety of energy harvesting technologies, other power sources and other system aspects need to be considered for a successful application including high efficiency, low-power microcontrollers, wireless connectivity, and direct current (DC) power management.

With the high level of interest in energy harvesting, suppliers of the EH products and the enabling technologies are making significant advances. In the solar area, a newly developed manufacturing process dramatically reduces the cost of Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) solar cells, bringing them into applications where high efficiency, light weight, and flexibility are important. This webcast will provide an overview of the energy harvesting system, what attendees at Sensors Expo can expect to see and hear, and discuss the latest developments in GaAs solar power.
