PowerFilm is now offering low-light development kits to those interested in low-light solar technology.
PowerFilm has been in business for almost three decades and has the ability to manufacture solar material so sensitive it can power sensors, transmitters and other low-power electronic devices from indoor light sources.
PowerFilm’s indoor low-light panels support many different use cases including:
Indoor use, either in interior rooms or next to a window.
Power levels typically associated with Bluetooth-level requirements.
Applications with a steady state draw in tens or hundreds of micro-watts range with intermittent - every second or so - bursts of higher output.
The kits include two PowerFilm LL3-37 Low-Light OEM modules, a circuit board with an energy harvesting chip, a battery and screw terminals for easy connection. These kits allow experimentation with PowerFilm's industry leading low-light solar panels in various environments and with various use cases.
