At MIT they work on the use of light, vibration and heat to power the integrated circuits.
The system developed at the University of Minesota is designed to combine world energy, heat and vibration to guarantee the work of chips that can be equipped with cybernetic prostheses.
According to the researchers, this is the next step in unlocking the traditional energy storage systems required for the proper functioning of electronic components.
The same MIT team led by prof. A. Chandrakasan has developed a wireless chip communication project that is characterized by very low electricity consumption. Combining both projects will create autonomous systems that will utilize solar energy, heat and vibration energy simultaneously. Scientists have now solved the problem of control, because the combination of different energy sources requires an extensive control system.
