Hyderabad sources reported that Fed up with the battery draining out every night, IIIT-Hyderabad student Sunil Kumar Maddikatla has designed a ‘zero power intelligent system’ (ZPIS) a one mm chip which will keep the phone charged up to six days. Accordingly the energy harvester component of ZPIS uses energy from body temperature, light and Wi-Fi signals, transforms it to electrical energy and stores it in a capacitor.
Meanwhile it is a hybrid model wherein the phone is charged using external sources and the ZPIS provides power while on the move. Further when explaining its functioning, Mr Maddikatla said the phone is idle 70% of the time. He said “During this state, as long as the Wi-Fi or light is on, the ZPIS will convert the energy to electricity and store it. “Efficiency levels vary between different sources”.
Moreover Mr. Maddikatla, originally from Kurnool, runs the research and development start-up BlueSemi in VLSI domain, which works out of T-Hub. As per report this chip would add to the cost of mobile device by Rs 100 to Rs 140 and the device can also be used for Bluetooth and wearable devices. Reportedly he is yet to complete his MTech thesis at the IIIT.
