Real World Energy Harvesting: Rapid Prototyping with Solar

In this webinar PowerFilm's Research and Development Engineer, Sam Jones, talks about how simple prototyping with indoor light energy harvesting can be. It covers the power consumption of common sensors and wireless devices and how they can be configured to run on ambient light energy. Sam discusses how to find the right tools to make prototyping easy and what charge circuitry options are available for final products.

The presentation summarizes how to start prototyping into three simple steps.

1) Identify a device to power with solar energy harvesting.
2) Identify the tools needed (Development Kits).
3) Assemble, deploy and prove your concept.
