ONiO.zero Offers Up to 24MHz of RISC-V Microcontroller Performance on Nothing But Harvested Energy-Hackster.io
A battery-less microcomputer chip developed by ONiOONiO.zero"is. It has very low power consumption and can generate its own power, so it does not require batteries such as coin-type batteries or lithium-ion batteries. Battery-based devices require battery replacement maintenance, but ONiO.zero can power sensors and devices for years without having to worry about such maintenance. In addition, small batteries do not need a battery that occupies most of the capacity, and high affinity with clothes, watches, and medical devices is attracting attention.
The architecture adopted isRISC-VThe clock frequency varies depending on the available input voltage, and is 24MHz at 1.8V, 6MHz at 1.0V, and 1MHz at 0.8V.
The key energy source is the high-frequency rectifier inside the chip, which corresponds to the band of 800/900/1800/1900 / 2400MHz. In Japan, bands 8, 18, and 19, which are the frequency bands of mobile phones, are compatible, so it can be operated without batteries by energy harvesting unless it is in a very mountainous area.
