TI’s new solar energy harvesting wireless sensor development kit converts ambient light into power for industrial, transportation, agricultural and commercial applications. The eZ430-RF2500-SEH kit combines TI’s MSP430 MCU, a CC2500 RF transceiver and eZ430-RF2500 tool with Cymbet Corporation’s Enerchip thin-film battery technology. Developers can now build self-powered, solar-based wireless sensor networks, eliminating system batteries that cost time and money to periodically replace, especially in remote locations.
