Energy Harvesting

Linear Technology manufactures a wide range of ultra-low power ICs targeted for energy harvesting applications. Power management products that convert energy from Vibration (Piezo), PhotoVoltaic (Solar) and Thermal (TEC, TEG, Thermopiles, Thermocouples) sources provide high efficiency conversion to regulated voltages or to charge batteries and super capacitor storage elements. Boost converters that operate from as little as 20mV or battery chargers with Maximum Power Point capability expand the possibilities for a wide variety of industrial automation and control, wireless sensor, transportation, automotive and building management applications.

Ultra-low quiescent current linear regulators, op amps, comparators, voltage supervisors, analog to digital converters, digital to analog converters and micropower voltage references provide additional fundamental building blocks required for autonomous systems.
