Abstract
The program focus is a new semiconductor technology that enables direct device integrated passive persistent energy harvesting. The new semiconductor technology enables much of the (low/mid acoustic frequency) ambient shock and vibration energy to be efficiently converted into electrical energy. The design maximizes ability to harvest and store energy from such ambient mechanical excitation as to immediately provide, or store, power availability. Exploiting the dual-function capability of these semiconductor compatible technology enables the entire system, including energy storage, to be designed as to be non-accessible and essentially tamper proof to all but the most exotic reverse engineering methods.
