The EM8500 is a ultra-low power PMU with an integrated DC harvester controller. The EM8500 is able to harvest down to 0.1V and 1µW, with a coldstart down to 0.3V. The integrated PMU is providing a versatile battery and power supply management, including an external DC charging compatible with a USB supply. The EM8500 has a unique dual storage feature allowing an extremely fast start-up in all conditions.
The EMEVB8500 is the entry-level development tool used for the evaluation and prototyping of EM8500 integrated energy harvesting solutions. The EMEVB8500 consists of a flexible board with various configurations. It is possible to select the internal or external storage element and to easily connect a harvester, external storage elements and the application. The user can choose the internal elements (supercap, wake-up button …) or combine with external elements (harvester, dual storage components …)
