Kit helps create perpetually powered wireless sensor network based on the MSP430 MCU
Mouser Electronics, Inc., announces it is stocking Texas Instruments’ Solar Energy Harvesting Development Tool, eZ430-RF2500-SEH. Texas Instruments is the world leader in digital signal processing and analogue technologies.
Mouser is stocking the Solar Energy Harvesting Development Tool, eZ430-RF2500-SEH, which is a complete kit to help create a perpetually powered wireless sensor network based on the ultra-low-power MSP430 microcontroller. The kit includes two eZ430-RF2500T 2.4GHz wireless target boards, an eZ430-RF USB debugging interface for real-time, in-system debugging, a AAA battery pack with expansion board (batteries included), a high efficiency SEH-01-DK Solar Energy Harvesting Board optimized for indoor use, and an MSP430 Development Tool CD containing documentation and software.
The eZ430-RF2500-SEH development kit features inputs for external energy harvesters and an interface to transfer data to a PC from a wireless system, and stores additional energy in a pair of EnerChip™ thin-film rechargeable solid-state batteries from Cymbet Corporation, a leader in thin film battery technology.

Mike Scott, Mouser Vice President of Active Products, remarks, “Texas Instruments is always on the frontier of new ideas and does not disappoint with this Solar Energy Harvesting Development Tool. Working in ambient light and compatible with the low-power MSP430 MCU, this product enables system designers to create wireless sensors for use where no powerline is available. Mouser’s commitment to offer the latest products quickly is realized again with the introduction of TI’s Solar Energy Harvesting Development Tool.
