Demonstration circuit 2321A is a low power wireless sensor node development platform equipped with an E-ink display for user feedback. The system is capable of monitoring and managing its available energy, logging information from sensors and sharing this data over a wireless network.
The board is designed to connect to the DC2344A or DC2509A energy harvesting demonstration boards which output a regulated power supply as well as status information from energy harvesting ICs and their backup batteries. Two coulomb counters on the DC2321A allow the processor to monitor the energy output of these batteries which will vary depending on the amount of energy which can be harvested from the system’s surroundings.
A DC2274A-A SmartMesh Manager must be used in order to evaluate the networking features of the DC2321A.
