Micro-batteries can be used as a back-up energy source in the absence of ambient energy. The control circuitry ensures efficient use of harvested energy and maintains the charge profiles required for batteries and supercapacitors while using a minimum amount of power. In this paper we also demonstrate the feasibility of a solar and a vibrational energy harvesting microPowerChip.
Keywords: Microsystems, Power supply, microbatteries, micro-supercapacitors, energy harvesting.
