Thanks for the link Sabastien
dump the full bridge rectifier for two half bridges.
1) efficiency may double at these low voltages!
2) the common mode noise voltage created by a full bridge currupts the analog front end, getting worse with miniturization due to proximity of the power conversion
Piezo and electrostatic principles are applied for energy harvesting. Piezo will be able to generate more power at least 10 times more than the electrostatic device.Also piezo will have more life time than the other one.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
