How to power your cellular IoT product with solar energy harvesting

May 21, 2021
Watch and learn how to power your cellular IoT product with solar energy harvesting! Nowi Blue Coral, Energy Autonomous Sensor Fusion Platform, is designed for developers to rapidly build cellular IoT products powered by solar energy harvesting. It combines the compact Nowi NH2 Energy Harvesting PMIC with the multimode LTE-M/NB-IoT nRF9160 System-in-Package from Nordic Semiconductor. The combination enables developers to rapidly and easily build both hardware and software for energy-autonomous sensor products. We guide you through implementing energy harvesting using Nowi's NH2 energy harvesting technology for cellular IoT products. Using the nRF9160 SiP we showcase the new Nowi Blue Coral development board and how the platform can be used to measure currents and optimize power consumption. Furthermore, we demonstrate a real-time measurement with power curves based on demo firmware and selected PV harvester and battery.
