S6SAE101A00SA1002 Solar-Powered IoT Device Kit

The Solar-Powered IoT Device development kit provides an easy-to-use platform for the development of a solar-powered IoT device with BLE wireless connectivity. It includes the S6AE101A energy harvesting PMIC device. Also included in the kit is Cypress' EZ-BLE™ PRoC™ Module (CYBLE-022001-00), a fully integrated BLE module solution that offers high flexibility for a wide variety of IoT device uses. A USB port is provided by Cypress' USB-UART LP Bridge Controller device (CY7C65213).

The Solar Powered IoT Device Kit provides everything needed to develop a light-powered sensor node that transmits sensor data using BLE:

  • Firmware provided for the following applications:
    • BLE Beacon, transmitting data at 1.5 sec intervals with ambient light as low as 200 lx
    • Wireless Sensor Node (WSN), transmitting data at 6 sec intervals with ambient light as low as 200 lx
  • BLE communication with a PC supported through the included BLE-USB bridge that is pre-programmed with custom firmware for this kit
  • Operation using energy harvested from light as low as 200 lx supported with the included solar cell module, which eliminates the need for a battery
    • Use of a vibration Energy Harvesting Device with an external diode bridge also supported (not included)
  • Reference schematic, BOM list, layout data provided
  • Expandable terminal on the Energy Harvesting motherboard provided, enabling support for the following: 
    • Reset button for EZ-BLE module
    • JTAG header to debug EZ-BLE module
    • Expandable sensor interface (I2C/UART/SPI/GPIO)
    • DIP switch for future expansion (not mounted)
    • LEDs for USB power and status
