DC2042A Energy Harvesting Multisource Demo Board

DC2042A Energy Harvesting Multisource Demo Board

Linear Technology's DC2042A is a versatile energy harvesting demo board that is capable of accepting piezoelectric, solar, 4 mA to 20 mA loops, thermal powered energy sources, or any high impedance AC or DC source. This board contains four independent circuits that consist of the following products:

  • LTC3588EMSE-1#PBF-ND and LTC3588IMSE-1#PBF-ND
    • Piezoelectric energy harvesting power supply
  • LTC3108EDE#PBF-ND and LTC3108EGN#PBF-ND
    • Ultra-low voltage step-up converter and power manager
  • LTC3105EMS#PBF-ND and LTC3105EDD#PBF-ND
    • Step-up DC/DC converter with power point control and LDO regulator
  • LTC3459ES6#TRMPBFTR-ND
    • 10 V micropower synchronous boost converter
  • LTC2935CTS8-2#TRMPBFCT-ND, LTC2935ITS8-2#TRMPBFCT-ND, LTC2935IDC-2#TRMPBFCT-ND, and LTC2935CDC-2#TRMPBFTR-ND
    • Ultra-low power supervisor with power-fail output selectable thresholds

The board supports the direct connection with the dust mote demo boards the DC9003A-B on a chip.

The board contains multiple jumpers that allow the board to be configured in various ways. The board's customizable offering makes it a perfect evaluation tool for any low power energy harvesting system.
