Presentation Summary

  • Bosch has a diverse portfolio of products in automotive, industrial, consumer, and household sectors that can benefit from power harvesting.
  • Quantitative analysis of several application examples shows that mW-level power in a few cubic cm volume is required.
  • We also discuss how cost and reliability requirements of specific applications place an additional constraint on power harvester design.
