Cymbet Wins 2009 Ace Award as "Best Enabler for Green Engineering"

April 04, 2009

Elk River, Minn. USA– May 4, 2009–Cymbet Corporation was recently awarded EE Times' 2009 Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Award for the "Best Enabler for Green Engineering" at the 2009 Embedded Systems Conference. Cymbet won the award for its EnerChip™ EH Solar Energy Harvesting EVAL-08 Evaluation Kit which incorporates the EnerChip EH CBC5300 Energy Harvesting module. The EnerChip EH EVAL-08 is the world's first turnkey solar energy harvesting evaluation kit that enables electronics designers to quickly create "green" power solutions to be used in applications such as handheld electronics, medical devices, data loggers and autonomous wireless sensors.

The Cymbet EnerChip EH EVAL-08 kit is also part of the recently released Texas Instruments (TI) ez430-RF2500-SEH Wireless Solar Energy Harvesting Demo Kit. The TI kit comes with all the hardware, firmware and user interface software designers need to create zero power wireless sensors, and is available from many distributors including DigiKey and Mouser.

EE Times' ACE Awards celebrate the creators of technology who demonstrate leadership and innovation in the global industry. Now entering its fifth year, the ACE Awards are the fastest-growing electronics industry recognition event honoring the people and companies behind the technologies that are changing the way we work, live and play.

"We are honored to receive this prestigious ACE Award from the editors of EE Times," said Bill Priesmeyer Cymbet president and CEO. "This recognition is another validation that our EnerChip technology is a key enabler in green power applications. We look forward to working with our customers to bring exciting new energy-efficient products to market."

Drop-in Solar Energy Harvesting Power Solutions

Creating power-efficient and cost-effective solar energy harvesting power solutions can be a complex task. There are many variables that must be taken into account. The Cymbet EnerChip EH CBC5300 module provides new technologies that overcome these complexities and can be used as a drop-in power solution. The CBC5300 module has >5000 recharge cycles, low self-discharge, fast charging times, stable output voltage, and can be connected to many different microcontrollers and low-power wireless devices.

EnerChip EH Solar Evaluation Kit – CBC-EVAL-08

In order to evaluate the EnerChip EH CBC5300, Cymbet also has introduced the CBC-EVAL-08 Solar Energy Harvesting evaluation kit. This kit contains a solar panel board that has a socketed EnerChip EH module. The EVAL-08 board has the standard Energy Harvesting 5-pin connector with cable for connection to a target device to be powered. There is an additional connector for a customer-supplied solar panel. The EVAL-08 works well in low-light conditions and is an ideal platform for prototyping both indoor and outdoor solar energy harvesting applications

EnerChip EH CBC5300 Module and EVAL-08 Kit Available Now

The EnerChip EH module and CBC-EVAL-08 Eval kits are available now from several distributors. They can be purchased as part of the Texas Instruments eZ430-RF2500-SEH solar energy harvesting wireless demo kit at the TI e-store . They are also available from available from the Cymbet Distribution partners listed on the Cymbet website.
