Smart Agriculture Sensing with Energy Harvesting

This solution is aimed at the emerging smart agriculture sector. The Smart Agriculture Sensing with Energy Harvesting reference design utilizes Renesas’ RE Family’s energy harvesting functionality to create an ultra-low power, highly efficient, maintenance-free farming environmental monitor. The system is capable of measuring outdoor air quality, temperature, humidity, soil moisture, etc., and sending this information via Sub-GHz technology over a wide range.

System Benefits

  • RE01 uses innovative silicon on thin buried oxide (SOTB™) process technology to realize ultra-low current consumption in both active and standby mode
  • Power products with ultra-low quiescent current and high efficiency to support maintenance-free battery-based applications
