The Battery-less Silicon on Thin Buried Oxide (SOTB) demonstrator, built using the c2 platform by AND Technology Research, uses the Renesas RE Family’s MCU powered from a Supercap that is charged using a photovoltaic (PV) panel, negating the need for a battery. The charged Supercap enables the demonstrator to measure temperature, humidity and light; and sending those readings via Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) to a phone where sensor readings are displayed on a custom application.

  • The board runs on harvested energy alone with a Renesas RE microcontroller featuring integrated energy harvesting control circuitry.
  • A supercap is used as the main power storage, enabling the system to be completely charged and discharged repeatedly for years without a battery.
  • Bluetooth LE module is used to send data collected from the sensors to a phone.
  • Features a photovoltaic cell used to harvest energy from ambient light.
  • Built-in temperature, light, and humidity sensors connected to the SOTB MCU via I2C.
  • PMOD Type 2 connector enables the ability to attach additional peripherals
  • The AND Technology Research c2 development platform reduces development time by up to 50% and allows for the creation, connection, and deployment of bespoke products quickly.
  • Equipped with fully tested software libraries and hardware reference designs, accelerating product development at any stage, reducing time-to-market and minimizing development costs.
