The RSL10 Solar Cell Multi-Sensor platform is a complete, low-cost solution for developing self-powered sensor nodes using harvested solar energy. Based on the RSL10 SIP- the industry's lowest power Bluetooth ® 5 radio, the RSL10 Solar Cell Multi-Sensor platform supports continuous Bluetooth Low Energy transmission of sensor information without requiring any batteries. The fully-integrated platform features multiple smart sensors, an ultra-low quiescent current LDO regulator (NCP170), and a 2-port connector for the provided solar cell (FlexRB-25-7030 from Ribes Tech). Also included is a low-profile 47 uF storage capacitor and a programming and debug interface.
