The commercially available AEM10940 - the successor of the AEM10941 and AEM30940 will also hit the market soon - uses an ultra-low-power boost converter with an efficiency of up to 94% with voltage references, energy management circuits and LDO controllers. In addition to the converter's efficiency, the AEM10940 also has cold start capability at an input voltage of only 380 mV and a an input power of 11 µW. Another advantage: The AEM10940 requires only very few external components.
“Fujitsu has been supplying the market with FRAM for metering applications for years. We are therefore well aware of the challenges in the area of power supplies, especially when it comes to a service life of ten years or more. Thanks to the expansion of our portfolio to include e-peas products, we can now offer an excellent alternative to batteries and cable supply," says FEEU President & Managing Director Axel Tripkewitz.
There are a number of synergies between the products of e-peas and FEEU's existing portfolio, as the Value Added Distribution Partner offers many components and services that support the development of low-power and IoT solutions. These include FRAM as well as Ambiq Micros MCUs, RTCs and BLE solutions.
FEEU plans to display its energy hardvesting solutions at Embedded World in Nuremberg from Feb. 27 through March 1, 2018: Hall 2, stand 110.
