Whether indoors or outdoors, light is an abundant energy source that can be used to power a wide variety of applications including the wireless sensors and devices of the emerging IoT industry. PowerFilm’s Indoor Solar Panels are inherently more sensitive than traditional solar technologies in low light and indoor settings.
PowerFilm’s plug and play solar development kits make it easy to experiment with and explore the potential of indoor solar.
The Indoor Solar Development Kit (DEV-IN-BASIC) is a total power management solution that can be used to directly power external electronics. With energy harvesting, battery charging, and output regulation, it bridges the gap between solar and electronics.
The Indoor Solar Development Kit with TI BLE (DEV-IN-BLE-TI) is a solar-powered wireless sensing module optimized for indoor environments down to 200 lux and below. Use this kit to jumpstart the development of solar power IoT electronics.
The Indoor Solar Development Kit with Nordic BLE (DEV-IN-BLE-NS) is perfect for developers looking to design or add PowerFilm’s high-performance indoor solar to BLE products. The kit works out of the box and can operate at extremely low light levels down to 200 lux and below. It includes an onboard energy harvester/power management IC, BLE circuitry, Indoor Solar Panels and all required components to be plug and play.
These designs are completely open sourced and can make your ideas a reality.
