Looks like another area for some industry standards to help market growth. Are there any standards bodies working on energy harvesting from RF background?

@Justharvestenergy: you are correct, IDTechEx event is on and there is another one coming up at the end of Nov/early Dec that I will be attending in Santa Clara. There are already many self-powered energy-harvesting tags deployed in M2M configuration. It was a matter of time before big IC companies caught on. TI has a clear lead in this area. @Sanjib.Acharya: the energy-harvesting part of the solution is usually isolated from other EMI-sensitive parts of the circuits they are part of. Depending on the design of the antenna for harvesting purposes, you can further isolate the EMI of victim components from the harvesting interferences. MP Divakar

I think there is an event next week on Energy Harvesting and Storage and Wireless Sensor Networks in Boston. I saw the link it's www.idtechex.com/boston

Data sheet has a table that says up to 6ma at 1.7V to 4.5V.

Is it the first commercially available chip that harvests ambient RF energy? Sounds great! The only doubt I have in my mind is, the RF energy harvesting won't work inside an anechoic chamber...right? So it's not going to pass the EMC?

wow, a memory chip that doesn't need to be powered exteranlly! It is interesting product and may be very useful if the harvested energy really can also power a simple low power MCU ans some other simple low power external circuits.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
