AB - Soon,pervasive computerswill enormously outnumber humans.Devices requiring sufficientenergy to operate maintenance-free for periods of years and beyond render today’s technologiesinsufficient.With thegapbetweenenergyrequirementsofembeddedsystemsandachievablelevelsofharvestedpower reducing,viablehybridenergyandpowermanagementsubsystemshaveemerged thatcombineharvesting with finite, rechargeableenergybuffers. Coupledwithadvancesinwirelesspowertransferandenergystorage,wepropose thatan energydesign space isemerging.Thereare,asyet, notools or systematicmethods fordesignspaceexploration or engineering inthiscontext.Itisimportantto develop such a methodology, and critical to link it with methodologies for system design andverification. We discuss the key factors such an energy design methodology should incorporate,including size,weight,energyandpowerdensities; efficiencies ofharvestersandbuffers; timebetweencharges,(dis)charge speeds,andchargecycles;andavailabilityandpredictabilityofharvestable energy.
