Designed to support the company’s Piccolo and Concerto C2000 MCUs, the Solar Explorer kit features a non-isolated design and includes multiple DC/DC conversions as well as a DC/AC stage that supports 12VDC/100W input stage. These stages are all controlled by a single Piccolo MCU. The kit also features a single-switch DC/DC boost for MPPT, DC/DC SEPIC for battery charging, and a full bridge DC/AC inverter capable of driving 24VAC. Additionally, the product includes a secondary processor controlling a solar panel emulator circuit, with a photo-diode for light sensing.
