Number of sensor nodes are needed for IoT in order to collect various information.
Murata's small energy device(UMA series) has optimum characteristics for energy
harvesting compare to other exisiting storage devices such as supercapacitors or
Li-ion batteries. It enables high efficient and maintenance-free sensor node in small space.
