RFM to Demonstrate Energy Harvesting Wireless Temperature Sensor

RF Monolithics’ (RFM) Director of M2M Business and RF Modules expert Tim Cutler will conduct live energy harvesting demonstrations related to the RFM RF modules during the forthcoming Silicon Valley-based Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) 2010 from April 26–29, 2010.

The show attendees will be able to witness a live demonstration that will depict the manner in which emerging harvesting technologies utilize solar power to provide continuous power for the functioning of low power modules developed by RFM for wireless sensor applications.

Cutler will demonstrate the RFM designed wireless temperature sensor that is used for energy harvesting. This sensor has been tested in outdoor environments for many months. It is capable of handling energy harvesting realities that involve situations when the energy source is unavailable many a time, and it is difficult to predict its availability or non-availability.

The sensor will store solar energy from sunlight in the day for night time uses. It is also able to tackle situations in day time when the sunlight is limited or is not available. It also caters to practical issues such as the fact that the earth does not shift from total sunlight to total darkness and therefore the energy source will gradually emerge along with the sun rising in the morning.

RFM will also provide a whitepaper at the show which highlights design considerations, schematics, and bill of material to help the attendees who are interested in creating their very own solar power energy harvester.

During the show, RFM will conduct draws everyday through which show attendees can win a short range based radio developer kit or a module out of the company’s wide portfolio of developer products.
