Can I power up a 18F pic and a 16*2 LCD with Energy harvesting IC (LTC3588 breakout) ? Answered
I want to make a heart rate sensor which is attached to a shoe. Instead of using batteries, I have thought of using LTC3588 breakout IC for my project. I use a piezo-plate to give the signal to LTC3588 IC, from that i hope to generate a current and voltage to drive my cct and the 16*2 Lcd. For Heart rate sensing, I use a IR sensor in the shoe. From the piezo plate, the foot steps can be calculated and find the distance the wearer traveled.
will this work? If u have any suggestions or any ideas or the changes that I should make, Pls don't hesitate to write.
