Key Document


The TIDA-00588 reference design is a BoosterPack that harvests energy from a wide variety of current sources or from the onboard solar cells to power any low-power TI LaunchPad. This design is a highly integrated power management solution that is well-suited for ultra-low power applications.

There are three storage methods on this board: 1)A 47mF super capacitor, 2) a LIR2032 coin cell, and 3) an external battery connector. You can use the onboard solar cells or add your own AC or DC current source.

  • Energy harvesting BoosterPack designed for any low power LaunchPad
  • Super capacitor or coin cell storage to 50mA
  • Onboard solar cells or external current source
  • 3.3V DC from the BQ25570 to power the LaunchPad
  • 5V boost to power support circuitry
  • Stackable design allows for creating a complete solution
