Sensor Node Power Management IC

Run reference : S65C18_3 - IC STMicroelectronics 65nm Advanced CMOS 7 ML CMOS065 (datasheet)


This power management IC is intended for large-scale, resilient, and energy-starved environments. Aside from having two energy harvesting ports, an efficient energy combiner, battery charger, and a 100mW output regulator, it also provides the sensor node with additional data such as harvested energy flow rates, battery and capacitor charge levels, and internal temperature. Energy, voltage, and temperature information is delivered to the sensor node, in addition to the regulated supply voltages from the battery and energy harvesters. This data is intended to be used for sensor node data tagging for resilient operation, as well as easing the burden of adding intelligence at the network, system, and application levels.
