- Winner: sbarbarelli
The block has to be able to transform infrared radiation, around 940 nm, to electrical output of 3-4 V, 40 mW or more.
Block circuit is self-powered from the abovementioned infrared energy source (without additional battery, etc).
Block has to be restricted to size less than 1 square cm, and less than 2-3 mm height.
Block components have to be common/accessible/inexpensive, preferably of SMD type.
Possible solution is "Joule thief" schema with PIN Photodiode. However, other solutions are welcomed.
Project's result has to be presented as EasyEDA compatible schematic and PCB, with video proof of its functioning.
