From low power to no power, TI is the driving force behind today’s energy harvesting applications.
By enabling 20+ year battery life, TI is opening the door to new applications that were not feasible with traditional battery powered systems. From powering a clock with a grape, to using vehicle vibrations to power sensors on a bridge, to solar powered sensors for wireless monitoring of a farm or winery, TI along with leading energy harvesting vendors, are creating a complete ecosystem allowing designers to not only envision but also create a battery-less world.
Energy Harvesting Basics
Energy harvesting is the process by which energy readily available from the environment is captured and converted into usable electrical energy
This term frequently refers to small autonomous devices, or micro energy harvesting
Ideal for substituting for batteries that are impractical, costly, or dangerous to replace
