Analog Devices Unveils Ultra-Low-Power Boost Regulator for Energy Harvesting Systems
ADI’s ADP5090 offers low-light power conversion and multiple power path management capability.Apr 1 2014 -Norwood, MA
- Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADI) introduced today the industry’s most efficient ultra-low-power boost regulator for photovoltaic and thermoelectric energy harvestingsystems.The ADP5090 ultra-low-power boost regulator represents a significant leap forward in energy harvesting technology by delivering efficient conversion of the harvested power (as low as 10 uW) with sub-uW operational losses that stores the maximum amount of energy for future operation. Harnessing “indoor” ambient light as a viable power source has become a growing trend in wireless sensor network applications worldwide.
