MCU applications powered by nature
Watch as Filip takes a closer look at alternative energy sources for powering the EFM32 Cortex-M3 Starter Kit.
Skip the battery and use solar, electromagnetic, piezo-electric and thermal energy sources instead when creating microcontroller applications. Together with Linear Technology and Würth Elektronik, we now provide a complete harvesting solution that you can use for implementing your own system. The kit is supported by the Advanced Energy Monitoring system in Simplicity Studio, making real-time power profiling and debugging easy.
