C6.3 - Thermo Harvesting – More and Enduring Power for Wireless Systems

Burkhard Habbe
Wireless sensor systems gain increasing market shares in a growing number of markets, from smart metering into Industrial condition and process monitoring. The driving force of almost all of these nodes is some sort of a battery. Hence, battery capacity is predominantly determining performance and features of such systems. Both of these criteria as well as the system’s duty cycle have to follow the limits given by capacity and price of the energy storage. As...
