The highest efficiency solar cells are made with Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), primarily for space applications. Attendees in this session will learn about a newly developed manufacturing process that dramatically reduces the cost of GaAs solar cells, bringing them into applications where high efficiency, light weight, and flexibility are important. Those who attend this session will also learn how to power Bluetooth LE systems and power beacons through the use of GaAs solar power with demo boards.
