Evaluation Kit Explores Induction Charging
This kit is an easy way for electronics designers to experiment with near field RF (Radio Frequency) charging of EnerChip CC rechargeable solid state energy storage devices. The near field RF Induction method of supplying “wireless power” is an excellent contactless solution for recharging the EnerChip and has many applications.
The EVAL-11 kit includes an RF charging transmitter board, a USB cable to power the transmitter board from a PC, and an EnerChip CC CBC3150-based receiver board. In addition to the EnerChip CC, the receiver board has a planar antenna for receiving power from the transmitter board and an output capacitor for delivering pulse current for radio transmissions.
The receiver board also has a connector for a Texas Instruments eZ430-RF2500T wireless network endpoint device. This combination enables designers to experiment with the concept of RF Induction charging for wireless sensor nodes.
