TDK's Energy Harvesting Solution

TDK, a leading global electronics company, has introduced an innovative energy harvesting solution that combines solar cells with their rechargeable SMD solid-state batteries, known as CeraCharge. This groundbreaking development aims to provide sustainable power for small autonomous devices utilized in wearable electronics, condition-based monitoring, and wireless sensor networks.

Energy harvesting, also known as power harvesting or energy scavenging, involves capturing ambient energy and storing it to generate electricity. TDK’s solution offers a batteryless and wireless approach, eliminating the need for battery replacement or recharging. This not only saves labor and costs but also contributes to a more sustainable society.

By incorporating solar cells into the energy harvesting system, TDK enables the devices to capture and harness energy from the surrounding environment. The solar cells convert sunlight into electricity, which is then stored in the CeraCharge rechargeable SMD solid-state batteries. These compact and reliable batteries provide a efficient power source for various electronic devices.

TDK’s energy harvesting solution offers several advantages. Firstly, it reduces waste by eliminating the need for disposable batteries, creating a more environmentally friendly and sustainable power solution. Additionally, the longevity and reliability of the CeraCharge batteries ensure a continuous and uninterrupted power supply, reducing maintenance efforts and costs.

This innovation aligns with TDK’s commitment to developing technologies that improve corporate value while promoting sustainability. By providing a reliable and eco-friendly power solution, TDK enables the deployment of small autonomous devices across various industries, enhancing efficiency and functionality.

TDK’s energy harvesting solution is poised to revolutionize the way small electronic devices are powered, offering a viable and sustainable alternative to traditional battery-powered systems. As the demand for energy-efficient and environmentally conscious solutions continues to rise, TDK’s combination of solar cells and CeraCharge is expected to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of autonomous device power generation.
