Evaluation Kit Simplifies Solar-Powered IoT-Device Design

Cypress Semiconductor introduces a kit to evaluate its energy harvesting Power Management IC (PMIC) family. The CYALKIT-E04 Evaluation Kit provide developers with an easy-to-use platform to create battery-free systems using a solar-powered module or to support battery-life extension, and can be used for evaluation of diverse power management functions used for wireless sensor nodes. The kit can be used with Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) wireless connectivity solutions from Cypress for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

 

The kit includes two independent boards to evaluate the ultra-low-power S6AE102A and S6AE103A PMICs that can use solar energy to charge a super capacitor, along with a sensor board to analyze magnetic door sensor or ambient light sensor operation. This kit includes a solar module, a coin battery, reference schematics, a BOM list and layout to streamline designs.
