The EVIX-CX3AA solar charging evaluation board demonstrates several IXYS technologies in a simple solar charger for a single AA rechargable alkaline battery.

The circuit represents an improvement over the typical solar cell charger that uses a blocking rectifier diode to prevent back discharge from the battery when no sun light is present. Instead, it uses a MOSFET as the blocking mechanism and a small solar cell to power the gate of the MOSFET to turn it on and off. The use of the MOSFET eliminates the need for an additional
more costly solar cell to overcome the forward voltage drop of the blocking diode. Charge rate or speed is not the goal for this evaluation board; it is to convey ideas of solar battery charging by way of a low power, low cost, uncomplicated design.
