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
