Energy Harvesting in Embedded Systems is Now a Reality

The exclusive Silicon on Thin Buried Oxide (SOTB) technology from Renesas breaks the previous trade-off between getting either low active current or low standby current consumption – previously you could only choose one. With SOTB, you get both without compromise. Additionally, SOTB supports high operating frequency for high performance and small silicon node geometry for high-density memory. This is a recipe for very capable, extreme low-power applications that run from harvested ambient energy – no batteries required.
