Is it better to run CC2650, CC2640, CC1350 or CC1310 SoCs from Texas Instruments keeping in mind ultra low power and utilizing energy harvesting at 1.8V (but consume larger current) or at higher voltages (like 3.3V ) but consume lesser current? Well, it depends. The performance will be similar because the core runs at 1.6V … Continue reading 1.8V or 3.3V ?
I finally received the components form element14 and in a couple of days i also soldered the ics and the passives etc and did some preliminary tests. I am delighted to tell you that the preliminary tests were a success. Over the next few weeks i will do some more extensive tests to check its … Continue reading Energy Harvesting Shields for WiFi Micro – Part 2
Looking at the User's guide its quite clear that you can run CC3200 on 2xAA or 2xAAA batteries and of course on 5v. But it is not exactly clear if it is SAFE to run it on 3.7-4.2 v from a LiPo. Unfortunately the schematic also doesn't help at the first go. Its fairly complex … Continue reading Running CC3200 on LiPo using TP4056
