This paper presents a fully integrated solar energy harvester for ultra-low power autonomous microsystems. This area- and power-efficient circuit harvests solar energy from a micro-power photovoltaic module to charge a rechargeable NiMH microbattery. As the harvested solar energy varies considerably in different lighting condition, the proposed circuit scales the power consumption and performance of the target microsystem, according to the harvested solar energy. Battery voltage is measured… CONTINUE READING
