Indoor solar-powered wireless mesh delivers 99.999% data reliability

April 13, 2015 // By Julien Happich
Using Sol Chip's Solar Battery, Linear Technology will be demonstrating its SmartMesh IP embedded wireless mesh networks indoor at Hannover Fair 2015 Trade Show.

While Sol Chip’s innovative Light Battery integrates all the required components to harvest and supply sustainable solar/light energy to low-power applications, Linear Technology’s SmartMesh IP wireless mesh networks are built for IP compatibility, and based on 6LoWPAN and 802.15.4e standards.

Based on the Eterna SoC technology, the SmartMesh IP product line features 99.999% data reliability and ultralow power (up to 8x lower power consumption than competitive solutions according to Linear, even in harsh, dynamically changing RF environments).

Even routing nodes may run indoors on solar power, supporting an extensive range of applications, such as energy management, building automation, renewable energy, and other implementations in smart infrastructure that require ultralow power.
