Multi-Sensor Platform Makes Battery-Less IoT A Reality

ON Semiconductor’s RSL10 Multi-Sensor Platform is powered by a solar cell and supports the development of IoT sensors using continuous solar energy harvesting to gather and communicate data through Bluetooth Low Energy, without the need for batteries or other forms of non-renewable energy. The pairing of ultra-low-power wireless communications, a small form-factor solar cell, and low duty cycle sensing applications makes it possible to develop and deploy totally maintenance-free IoT sensor nodes. The RSL10 Solar Cell Multi-Sensor Platform is enabled by the RSL10 SIP, a System-in-Package (SiP) solution featuring the RSL10 radio, integrated antenna, and all passive components.

 

The platform combines the RSL10 SIP with a solar cell and a host of low power sensors from Bosch Sensortec, including the BME280 all-in-one environmental sensor (pressure, temperature, humidity) and the BMA400 ultra-low-power 3-axis accelerometer. For development, the platform is supplied with all design files (Gerber, schematic and BoM) and customizable source code as part of a CMSIS software package.
