Thermoharvesting Module

The TE-CORE thermoharvesting module converts locally available waste heat thermoelectrically to unlimited free electric energy — as long as the heat flows through the thermogenerator (TEG). The integral power conversion and management circuit steps up the ‘gradient–analog’ output voltage of the TEG at a fixed voltage. The harvested energy is being buffered in an extendable capacitor and controlled by a configurable hysteresis.

TE-CORE is an ideal evaluation-kit and/or reference design to analyse, test and integrate thermal energyharvesting in end products.
