Eval Kit Uses All Methods of Harnessing Ambient Energy

Tue, 03/01/2011 - 6:56am

Cymbet Corporation announced the availability of its EnerChip EP CBC-EVAL-09 Universal Energy Harvesting evaluation kit. The EVAL-09 is said to be the first kit to support all types of ambient energy harvesting from light and vibration, to thermal gradients and flow/motion. The kit features the EnerChip Energy Processor (EP) CBC915-ACA, a universal energy harvesting power management unit for ultra-low power energy systems. The EnerChip EP works universally across all energy harvesting transducer technologies including photovoltaic, thermoelectric, piezoelectric and electromagnetic.

To store harvested energy, the EVAL-09 uses EnerChip solid state batteries (SSB). EnerChip SSBs have the ability to be recharged 1,000s of times to last the lifetime of the product – there are no batteries to change out. Moreover, EnerChip SSBs contain no flammable solvents or dangerous chemicals/gasses that can leak. They’re completely non-combustible and do not require any special disposal process (unlike traditional batteries). Additionally, EnerChips use surface mount technology with reflow solder, eliminating the need for cumbersome battery holders.
