Cymbet - Cymbet is the leader in thin film battery technology and energy harvesting power management solutions. The Cymbet EnerChip™ family of solid-state, rechargeable thin-film batteries is a new innovation in energy management and energy storage. Packaged as a Surface Mount Technology (SMT) component, the EnerChip provides energy storage in a form factor and with a convenience not previously attainable using conventional solutions such as lithium coin cells and super capacitors. Cymbet continues to be a proactive force in the development of green technology thanks to their energy harvesting solutions. More...
The harnessing and collection of this ambient energy into a useful form is called Energy Harvesting or Energy Scavenging. Advances in both transducer technology and Cymbet EnerChip thin film batteries have made ambient energy harvesting a practical reality. For example, the Cymbet EnerChip EH CBC5300 Solar Energy Harvesting module is the heart of the new Texas Instruments eZ430-RF2500-SEH Wireless Demo Kit. This kit is the world's first complete autonomous Energy Harvesting wireless sensor development tool. Less...
|EZ430-RF2500-SEH Solar Energy Harvesting Development Tool - The eZ430-RF2500-SEH is a complete Solar Energy Harvesting development kit to help create a perpetually powered wireless sensor network based on the ultra-low-power MSP430 microcontroller.
The system manages and stores additional energy in a pair of thin-film rechargeable EnerChips from Cymbet which are capable of delivering enough power for 400+ transmissions.
|CBC5300 - the EnerChip™ EH module is a drop in power solution for Solar Energy Harvesting (EH) applications. This module is a self-contained power module in a 24-pin DIP configuration. The CBC5300 module is designed to accept a wide range of energy transducer inputs, store the harvested power, and deliver managed power to the target system. The purpose of this module is to enable system designers to quickly develop energy harvesting applications. The CBC5300 board has two control lines that can be connected to a microcontroller (MCU) for the purpose of conserving energy, using power efficiently, and extending EnerChip battery life.
