Have you ever considered the workforce and material costs associated with appropriately replacing, recycling, or disposing of dead batteries? The use case for many portable or remotely located devices like IoT environmental sensors, smart tags, and Electronic Shelf Labels ultimately has a cost the end customer must bear, primarily attributable to battery replacement, which has negatively impacted the adoption of such technologies. In response, to minimize the number of battery changes, users have had no option but to accept lower performance levels from these devices.
Energy harvesting has the potential to overcome these limitations by collecting ambient energy and using it to power electronic devices. Applications where more energy is harvested than consumed can become completely energy-autonomous, but until now, two main factors have limited its application.
Learn more about our creative solutions to these factors and benefits to the environment in this blog post from Rodrigo – https://efficiencywins.nexperia.com/efficient-products/adaptive-energy-harvesting-pmic.html
