Advanced Power Solutions for Wearable Technology and Internet of Everything Sensors

New Wearable Technology (WT) and Internet of Everything (IoE) devices are bursting on the scene, and are ultra-low power, smart, wireless and highly integrated miniature systems. Powering these small devices is a significant challenge. Batteries are bulky, toxic and problematic to change out. This webinar provides design details for new life-of-product powering solutions.

To provide power for WT and IoE devices, energy harvesting and wireless charging technologies and products have been introduced that are powering cost-effective sensors, wearables, implantables and controls. The key commercial challenge for rechargeable micro -powered systems is to be cost effective compared to legacy power solutions, such as line power or primary batteries.

This webinar presents the technical details of new innovative technologies that are driving successful commercialization in the areas of: energy-harvesting transducers, energy conversion, energy storage, power management, ultra-low power microcontrollers, sensors and wireless solutions. Reference designs will be provided as well the opportunity to register for complimentary evaluation kits.
