This looks very promising product and has vast application range. Providing connector for other harvesting sources is also very appropriate. However, it sohuld not bypass solar, it should add to solar energy. Silicon Lab should follow with more energy harvester for vibration, thermal and RF.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
