Energy harvesting PMU boosts efficiency in IoT apps

Stephen Law   

ANALOG DEVICES ADP509x power management unit (PMU) enables faster and more efficient energy harvesting in IoT applications. Device converts harvested power down to the 16 μW to 100mW range with only sub-μW operation losses. Delivering fast cold-startup time, device relies on energy harvesting in low energy conditions often have to slowly accumulate enough energy to turn on, resulting in long delays before the device can start sensing, processing, and transmitting. This can result in missed data collection, slow operation, and poor user experience. http://www.analog.com/ADP5091.html
