TI Offers Low-Power Converter to Advance Design of Energy-Harvesting Electronics
1/9/2013

A graphic displays how Texas Instruments' new ultra-low-power converter harvests energy to help designers create more efficient electronics. The TPS62736 DC/DC step-down converter can be used to create battery-free applications such as wireless sensor networks, monitoring systems, smoke detectors, wearable medical devices, and mobile accessories.

Great potential for this technology

NO RATINGS
I love the potential for this type of technology. Think of how long battery life has been the bane of the existence of anyone dependent on portable electronics, especially if people need then to do their jobs. There is so much energy already available that doesn't need to be created, and as researchers come up with better and more interesting ways to harvest energy, electronics will become less dependent on batteries and other energy sources. I am a big proponent of this type of work.
