Mouser Now Stocking Cypress’ CYALKIT-E04 Kit

for Evaluating Energy-Harvesting Designs

 

May 31, 2017 Mouser Electronics, Inc. is now shipping the CYALKIT-E04 S6AE102A and S6AE103A evaluation kit (EVK) from Cypress Semiconductor. The kit allows engineers to quickly and easily develop battery-free applications with an energy-harvesting device using Cypress’ ultra-low-power, energy-harvesting S6AE102A and S6AE103A power management ICs (PMICs).

The Cypress CYALKIT-E04 S6AE102A and S6AE103A EVK, available from Mouser Electronics, consists of an S6AE102A board, an S6AE103A board, and a sensor board along with a solar module, wires, and a battery for testing different configurations. The kit can be used as a standalone device or in conjunction with the CY8CKIT-042-BLE Bluetooth® Low Energy (BLE) Pioneer kit to demonstrate and develop applications that power a Bluetooth low energy device using harvested energy. The BLE Pioneer Kit supports the Cypress PSoC® Creator™ integrated design environment (IDE), a hardware and software co-design environment powered by a library of pre-verified and pre-characterized PSoC Components™.

 

The S6AE102A and S6AE103A PMICs enable ultra-low power operation with quiescent currents of only 280 nA and startup power of only 1.2 μW. This enables the boards to store slight amounts of power generation from a solar cell under dark environments of approximately 100 lux, and provide power to the systems. This kit is capable of supporting the life extension of a primary battery or becoming a battery-less solution, and can be used for evaluation of diverse power management functions used for wireless sensor networks. Engineers can also connect the sensor board to the S6AE102A and S6AE103A boards to evaluate magnetic door sensor and ambient light sensor operation.
