Perpetually Powered Energy Harvesting Systems Using the MSP430 MCU

Details

Date: March 9, 2015

Modern ultra-low power microcontrollers such as the TI MSP430 consume so little energy that batteries aren’t necessary even while sampling various sensors and communicating wirelessly.  By properly managing low-power modes and adjusting your activity profile, scavenging energy from the environment enables infinite system uptime without the need for a battery.  The various methods of energy harvesting will be discussed including vibration, solar and heat and the tips and tricks to enable an existing application to run from harvested energy.
