Interface Circuitry
Our group is developing integrated interface circuitry to connect small scale solar cells with microbatteries. The overall goal is to provide properly conditioned charging current to minimize charge time and maximize battery life. The following circuit is an example of the designs we have created toward achieving that goal. The circuit consumes very little power while monitoring the solar cell output and the battery's state of charge.
