MATRIX Industries Mercury Boost Converter Prototyping Kit Product Introduction

5/26/2023 9:05:07 AM


The MATRIX Industries Mercury Boost Converter Prototype Kit is built around a mercury energy harvesting boost converter. This kit is ideal for IoT sensor applications that can harness energy from low temperature differences without the need to replace or recharge batteries. The board includes an ultra-low Power consumption 16-bit microcontroller (MCU) with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), pre-programmed with a beacon application.
