Ultra Low Power Energy Harvesting Battery Boost Converter Design

TI's BQ25504 is a new integrated nano-energy energy harvesting power management solution that is ideal for ultra-low power applications with special needs. The product is specifically designed to efficiently acquire and manage microwatts and milliwatts of electricity, usually from a variety of photovoltaic solar DC sources or thermal motor generators. The BQ25504 is a highly efficient implementation of converters or chargers for products and systems, for example in applications where there is a stringent need for operational power consumption in radio sensor networks. The DC/DC boost converter/charger, designed with the BQ25504, requires only milliwatts of power to operate.
