Terminator REBOOTING: Smart microchip can self-start and operate even when the battery runs out.
Singaporean scientists have unveiled a smart microchip that will keep running long after its battery runs empty. The new BAYLESS has an integrated solar cell that can get power from dim lighting, and its power management features let it start and run itself.
The new chip will be installed on the Internet of Things (IoT) sensor nodes. Because it needs far less power, it can run on much smaller batteries. Smart devices that will use the chip can be made many times cheaper and smaller.
IoT devices need to run for long periods of time on limited power. They, therefore, need to be very efficient.
The batteries in a typical smart device are much bigger than the lone microchip they power. A battery can also cost thrice as much as the chip. The size of the battery depends on the operational life of the sensor node. The node’s lifespan also determines how often the battery needs to be replaced.
Most IoT devices constantly use battery power. Smaller batteries are replaced more often, while bigger batteries cost more and take up more space.
