LTC3588 Energy Harvester Breakout board uses the Piezoelectric Energy Harvester from Linear Technologies. This board can be used for harvesting piezoelectric energy and solar energy.
There is a bridge rectified input for piezo elements (PZ1 and PZ2) and a direct input (VIN) for DC sources. Both are clamped to 20V. In addition, the board can simply be used as a standalone nanopower buck regulator. The buck converter turns on and off as needed to maintain regulation.
