Film Solar Cells
Tech Notes
TDK Product Features
This is a flexible, amorphous silicon photovoltaic (PV) cell on a film substrate. It has a long track record in the market for its high power generation efficiency under indoor lighting and low-light environments such as fluorescent lights and LEDs. It is light and thin, which means it can stand up to dropping, and is flexible and has excellent formability characteristics. It is compatible with custom designs and can be mounted on a variety of products. It can be used as a power generation element for energy harvesting (environmental power generation) to achieve battery-less operation. Representative applications include wearable devices including watches and smartwatches as well as IoT devices such as beacons and wireless sensor networks.
