S6SAE10xA Solar-Optimized Energy Harvesting PMIC

The S6AE10xA family of Energy Harvesting Power Management ICs enable tiny, solar-powered Internet of Things (IoT) devices. They are the world’s lowest-power, single-chip Energy Harvesting PMICs, and can be used with solar cells as small as 1 cm2 due to their low startup and quiescent current. The PMICs are highly integrated, with family members offering power gated outputs, low dropout regulators, CR timers, comparators, and battery backup operation. They are ideal for battery-less Wireless Sensor Nodes (WSNs) that monitor physical and environmental conditions for smart homes, commercial buildings, factories, infrastructure and agriculture.
