NO RATINGS
Yesterday the LTC3105 (day 2, slide 10) was introduced.

TI seems to have a comparable part, the BQ25504.  The DigiKey website says:

 

Texas Instruments' bq25504 is the first of a new family of intelligent integrated energy harvesting nano-power management solutions that are well suited for meeting the special needs of ultra-low power applications. The product is specifically designed to efficiently acquire and manage the µW to mW of power generated from a variety of DC sources such as photovoltaic or thermal electric generators.

Looks like an interesting part -- Comments solicited. 

Data sheets and an evaluation module are available from DigiKey:
