AEMSUCA: Solar harvesting into supercapacitors


The AEMSUCA is a highly efficient solar powered supercapacitor charger with two regulated outputs by Jasper Sikken. This is the sister board of the AEMLION: Solar harvesting into Li-ion battery.

The AEMSUCA is a 0.8x0.6 inch board for the AEM 10941 Solar Harvesting IC from E-peas. It efficiently converts solar panel energy into SU per CA pacitor charge, it even works with indoor light. It features 3.3V and 1.8V regulated outputs that are enabled when the supercapacitor has sufficient charge, and a low voltage warning that informs the user of impending shutdown when the supercapacitor runs low. It easily integrates in other projects because of the castellated via’s, and when soldered onto 0.1’ pitch header it fits in a bread board.
