Without proper charging and control circuitry, a solar panel's output could be significantly reduced or rendered inoperable. PowerFilm understands what power electronics are needed to extract the optimum power from a solar panel and store it in a battery system.
PowerFilm offers a wide range of off-the-shelf and custom-built charge controllers to meet our customers’ diverse needs.
PowerBoost Charge Controller
The PowerBoost charge controller was developed specifically for PowerFilm’s semi-flexible crystalline PV technology. It can efficiently charge and maintain the health of lead-acid, Lithium-Ion, and other rechargeable battery systems.
PowerBoost charge controller family can also be used with our flexible amorphous silicon foldable and rollable products to ensure safe and efficient battery charging.
Energy Harvesting PMIC
PowerFilm’s plug-and-play solar development kits make it easy to experiment with and explore the potential of indoor solar. Using high-performance PMICs, they can extract energy from dim ambient light sources.
With knowledge of all power components, PowerFilm can put together integrated solutions. PowerFilm’s LightSaver line showcases how solar, power electronics, and a storage element combine to form a total solution.
