e-peas the leader in PMICs and ultra-low power semiconductors dedicated to energy harvesting will be using this year’s Embedded World exhibition to showcase the breadth of applications empowered by its technology as well as its wide ecosystem and partner network.
Visitors to the stand will see it is now possible to replace disposable battery-based systems with eco-friendly, cost-effective alternatives. They will learn about the core e-peas PMICs as well as all surrounding elements required for energy harvesting system implementation -logistics, environmental and operational expense benefits can be derived. e-peas technology can be applied to numerous scenarios – including smart home, building automation, asset tracking, pharmaceutical, cold chain, industrial automation, environment monitoring, etc.
There will be defined areas at the stand explaining the breadth of potential energy sources and storage options, as well as the ultra-low power microcontrollers and image sensor devices that can be incorporated into designs. Visitors will also get the opportunity to see the mix-and-match of the different harvester/PMIC/storage combinations, and gain advice from e-peas technical staff about what kind of solution will prove optimal for their application requirements.
The 24/7 Sensor Node Demonstrator will be a major highlight of what e-peas is going to display on its stand (4A-301). This is based on the company’s unique ’ambient energy aware’ approach, combining a smart boost sequence and an adaptive sensing phase. The core of the demonstrator is the recently-announced AEM10300 energy harvesting PMIC (which has a null quiescent current when the energy source is not providing energy). Through this demo, e-peas will be able to show that situations where a harvested energy source is not available for prolonged periods of time (potentially several months) can be addressed. This demonstrator can stay broadcasting sensor data for more than 3 months in complete darkness, and is proven ready to recover normal activity when the energy source is restored.
