Please find attached an Energy Harvesting Project developed using the RL78/G14 MCU. The Intention of the project was to construct a system capable of harvesting the waste energy produced by a Cup/Mug filled with a hot beverage. The harvested energy is then used to power a display mechanism(E-Ink) and a wireless communication module (WM-Bus).
The attached file contains all of the documents relating to the project (Software source files, Hardware reference design and Application Notes). I would strongly recommend thoroughly reading the Application Notes prior to attempting any modifications to the design, as they describe the project in detail and outline areas of possible improvements.
Have Fun Playing with it.
