The paper focuses on an electronic interface which can be used into Piezoelectric Energy Scavenging Systems (PESS). These systems convert the energy of mechanical vibrations into electrical energy using a piezoelectric transducer to realize a power supply for low power electronic systems. To obtain a suitable supply source an AC-DC conversion of the output(More)

This paper presents a fully autonomous integrated circuit for power conversion from multiple and heterogeneous energy harvesting transducers. Five input channel are dedicated to vibrational harvesting and exploiting multi-frequency operations. Additional four input channels are dedicated to manage DC sources. An independent MPPT is applied on each channel.(More)
Piezoelectric Energy Scavenging Systems (PESS) are used to convert the energy of mechanical vibrations into electrical energy exploiting the piezoelectric effect. Their output is a voltage which strongly varies in time; to obtain a suitable supply source an AC-DC conversion of the output voltage of these transducers is needed. Since the output power level(More)
