Nexperia’s NEH2000BY PMIC helps make it simpler to design energy harvesting systems that can be as much as 20x smaller than the other offerings and don’t need manual adjustments for individual applications. Additionally to that, the PMIC was created without the use of inductors, which makes PCB design simpler and drastically decreasing overall BOM and board sizes with a 12mm2 assembly area.
In order to achieve the best effectiveness of conversions, all energy harvesting systems have to be able of adjusting to the changing energy sources as the environment changes. The NEH2000BY uses Max Power Point Tracking (MPPT) that is an adaptive algorithm designed to optimize the way it is able to transfer energy, and to maximize efficiency in conversion, ranging from 80% to 80 percent. This exclusive MPPT algorithm combines speed and precision and allows the PMIC to respond to changes in the environment within less than 1 second. This is significantly faster than alternative currently available and increases how much energy that is gathered throughout the day, greatly expanding the range of applications. In addition, thanks to its self-optimization capabilities and the capability to operate autonomously, without the need for pre-programming the NEH2000BY makes it simpler for designers to run devices using energy from the environment.
Nexperia’s energy harvesting products allow efficient energy harvesting from a variety of sources of energy in applications that consume many milliwatts of energy such as wireless IoT nodes and wearable smart tags as well as electronic labels for shelves.
Dan Jensen, General Manager Business Group Analog and Logical IC’s at Nexperia says “The NEH2000BY’s low-cost, user-friendly and compact design will enable the use of energy harvesting across more diverse use applications. In removing the need to replace batteries in these scenarios, NEH2000BY will significantly reduce the quantity of hazardous waste generated as well as provide significant environmental benefits.”
The NEH2000BY comes in a 16-lead and 3 mm x 3mm QFN packaging and is able to operate between -40degC to +85degC.
