A multiharvesting system conception focused on low-voltage (up to 2.5 V) and low-power applications is presented and validated as a point-of-view system. Using just this application-specified integrated circuit, with a total quiescent power consumption of 160 μW, the harvesting system is able to collect and manage energy from different power sources, such as solar light (indoor environment), vibration (low-voltage piezoelectric generators), and electromagnetic induction (operating with a carrier frequency of 13.56-MHz regulated band). The maximum total power harvested with the addition of the three harvesting sources is around 6.4 mW, for the operating conditions defined by a PZT at 7 m/s2 at 80 Hz, 1500 lx for a laboratory illumination, and 200 mW emitted by a base transmitter at 25-mm distance between coils. A broad and detailed description of all low-power-consumption circuits involved in the multiharvesting system is described, emphasizing their design for low-voltage and low-power applications.
