GENERAL DESCRIPTION
BENEFITS
®
TM
EH300/EH301 Series EPAD Energy Harvesting Modules can
accept energy from many types of electrical energy sources and
store this energy to power conventional 3.3V and 5.0V electrical
circuits and systems. EH300/EH301 Series modules are completely self-powered and always in the active mode. They are
intended for low power intermittent duty cycle sampled data or
condition-based monitoring/ extreme lifespan applications. These
modules can accept instantaneous input voltages ranging from
0.0V to +/-500V AC or DC, and input currents from 200nA to 400mA
from energy harvesting sources that produce electrical energy in
either a steady or an intermittent and irregular manner with varying source impedances. EH300/EH301 Series modules condition
the stored energy to provide power at output voltage and current
levels that are within the limits of a particular electronic system
power supply specifications. For example, 1.8V and 3.6V is a useful
voltage range for many types of IC circuits, such as microprocessors.
EH300/EH301 Series modules are designed to continuously and
actively operate to capture, accumulate, and conserve energy from
an external energy source. Each individual EH300/EH301 Series
module is set to operate between two supply voltage thresholds,
+V_low DC and +V_high DC, corresponding to the minimum (VL)
and maximum (VH) supply voltage values for the intended application. When an energy source starts to inject energy into the
inputs of an EH300/EH301 Series module in the form of electrical
charge impulses, these charge packets are collected, accumulated
and stored onto an internal storage capacitor bank. For most common energy harvesting applications, the electrical energy charge
packets arrives in the form of input voltage spikes that are uncontrolled and unpredictable. Often these cover a wide range of voltages, currents and timing waveforms. EH300/EH301 Series modules are designed to accommodate such conditions with exceptional efficiency and effectiveness. As an example, a EH300 module can cycle within 4 minutes at an average input current of 10µA
and within 40 minutes at an average input current of just 1.0µA.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
ENVIRONMENTAL SPECIFICATIONS
The EH300/EH301 Series module's voltage on the onboard
storage capacitor bank is +V, which is also the positive supply voltage switched to power the output power load. Initially, +V voltage on an EH300/EH301 Series module starts
at 0.0V. During the initial charge period, +V starts charging
from 0.0V. The module's internal circuit monitors and detects this +V voltage. When +V reaches VH, the module
output (VP) is enabled and turned to the ON state and is
then able to supply power to a power load, such as a microprocessor and/or a sensor circuit. The amount of useful energy available is a function of the capacity of the storage
capacitor bank. Meanwhile, an EH300/EH301 Series module continues to accumulate any energy generated by external energy sources. If external energy input availability is
high, output VP remains in an ON state continuously, until
such time that external energy availability is lower than the
power demand required by the power load. As external energy input exceeds power loading, +V increases until internal voltage clamp circuits limit it to a maximum clamp voltage.

Input energy charging times t1 and t2 are limited by input
energy available minus energy loss by an EH300/EH301
Series module. The energy output time period t3 is determined by the rate of energy used by the power load as a
function of energy stored. Low input energy hold time t4 is
typically many orders of magnitude greater than the sum of
t1, t2 and t3.

INITIAL SETUP & CALIBRATION
EH300/EH301 Series modules are setup and calibrated
at the factory to standard specifications and settings.
No user setup is required. Optional user control signal
and connection to external capacitor or battery storage
banks are available at the output port. All EH300/EH301
Series modules are shipped ready to use.

OUTPUT
During normal operation, as power is drawn from an EH300/
EH301 Series module, +V decreases in voltage. When +V
reaches VL, output VP switches to an OFF state and stops
supplying any further power to the power load. With built-in
hysteresis circuits within the module, VP now remains in the
OFF state, even when the external energy source starts
charging the capacitor bank again by importing fresh new
impulses of electrical energy. Once VH level is reached again,
output VP is then turned to the ON state again. Hence +V
voltage cycles between VH to VL voltage levels and then to
the OFF state. When in the ON state, VP can supply up to
1A of current for a limited time period as determined by the
stored useful energy and the energy demand by the power
load. An optional input/ouput pin VR functions as VP on/off
control (external input through 1KΩ) or as READY logical
control (output) signal preceeding output VP switching.
