Wireless Sensor for Devices Harvests Solar Energy

Wireless Sensor for Devices Harvests Solar Energy

Two Israel-based providers of electronics components have collaborated to provide solar-energy harvesting technology that can power wireless sensors so they require little or no battery power to operate. Sol Chip and Cellergy are offering a high-performance energy harvester that combines Cellergy supercapacitors and Sol Chip’s solar-energy harvesting technology and can be integrated into a range of devices and applications to provide power for short-range wireless communication. The companies envision the technology being used to enable the so-called Internet of Things in which devices can identify and communicate with one another over the Internet or a network. These devices will be used in a number of industries, including agriculture, smart lighting control, smart water management, environmental monitoring, medical, security, and safety. Sol Chip and Cellergy have colla...
