CBC-EVAL-09 Energy Harvesting Evaluation Kit

Cymbet Corporation

CBC-EVAL-09 EnerChip EP Universal Energy Harvesting Evaluation Kit accepts inputs from solar, piezoelectric, thermoelectric or electromagnetic EH transducers. Features the EnerChip EP CBC915 Energy Processor Chip and EnerChip Solid State Batteries.

Product Description

CBC-EVAL-09 is a universal energy harvesting evaluation kit that combines any one of multiple EH transducers with the EnerChip™ EP CBC915-ACA Energy Processor and the EnerChip CBC51100 100µAh solid state battery module that has two 50µAh EnerChip solid state batteries connected in parallel. The purpose of this evaluation platform is to enable designers to quickly develop Energy Harvesting applications. The EVAL-09 ships with a solar cell for initial evaluation kit testing.

There are several technology advances on the EVAL-09: the ability to use any type of EH transducer, the EnerChip Energy Processor that uses high energy efficiency Maximum Peak Power Tracking algorithms, and EnerChip Solid State Batteries for energy storage when the EH transducer is inactive.

CBC-EVAL-09 EnerChip EP Universal Energy Harvesting Evaluation Kit accepts inputs from solar, piezoelectric, thermoelectric or electromagnetic EH transducers. Features the EnerChip EP CBC915 Energy Processor Chip and EnerChip Solid State Batteries.

Features
  • DC IN
    • Energy Harvesting transducer input below 4.06V DC. Normally a photovoltaic cell.
  • AC IN
    • Energy Harvesting transducer input below 4.06V AC. An example might be an electromagnetic input from a flow harvester.
  • HV DC IN
    • Energy Harvesting constant impedance transducer input from 4.06V DC to 20VDC. Normally a photovoltaic cell or higher voltage thermoelectric generator.
  • HV AC1 IN and HV AC2 IN
    • Energy Harvesting transducer input from 4.06V DC to 20V AC. Normally a piezoelectric vibrational harvester. A single input can be utilized on HV AC1. If two piezo electric beams are mechanically coupled together in the same transducer unit, the two outputs can be connected to HV AC1 and HV AC2.
  • Bridge Rectifiers
    • Rectifies from AC to DC for AC In or HV AC IN.
  • Boost Converter
    • Boosts the DC In or AC IN voltage to 4.06 Volts.
  • 2 Low Voltage Charge Pumps
    • Used to start up the CBC915 Energy Processor.
  • Flyback Down Converter
    • Drop HV DC IN or HV AC1 IN/HV AC2 IN down to 4.06V.
  • Energy Processor
    • EnerChip EP CBC915 finds the Maximum Peak Power Tracking point of the EH transducer input.
  • Transducer Input Voltage Select and Sense Switches
    • Monitors all input voltages and connects to the Energy Processor.
  • EnerChip CBC51100 Solid State Battery Module
    • Two EnerChip 50µAh solid state batteries (CBC3150 and CBC050) for energy storage.
  • Low Voltage Cut-off
    • Should the voltage on the EnerChips fall below 3.0VDC, this circuit disconnects the batteries so they do not discharge further.
  • Energy Management Switching Matrix
    • Controls the routing of Vout to the system load. User selectable switches indicate the EH transducer input to voltage output.
  • Serial I/O
    • These 2 communications lines connect the Energy Processor to another microcontroller such as the TI MSP430 MCU on the eZ430-RF2500 demo kit wireless end device that would plug into connector J9.
