Linear Technology announces the LTC3588-1, a complete energy harvesting
solution optimized for low energy sources, including piezoelectric
transducers. The LTC3588-1 integrates a low-loss, full-wave bridge
rectifier with a high efficiency buck converter to harvest ambient
vibrational energy via piezoelectric transducers and then convert it to
a well-regulated output to power application microcontrollers, sensors,
data converters and wireless transmission components.
