RFD102A-TB with a 1m antenna harvesting RF energy.

We recently sent an RF102A-TB to Roger Henderson in New Zealand. He was kind enough to share his results from testing the part on his deck overlooking Auckland using a 1m antenna. The output voltage of the RFD102A-TB varied from 1.5V…3.5V and show the potential of grabbing some power from the air to possibly power a sensor or other low power circuit. Many thanks to Roger Henderson for his feedback and photo. The RFD102A-TB is available for sale on our website.
