eteg HV56 Power generator

Download Data Sheet

The eTEG HV56 thermoelectric power generator can convert waste heat from thermal sources into usable electricity as an energy source. The eTEG™ HV56 has demonstrated output power levels of 1.5mW at a ΔT of 10K and >36.5mW at a ΔT of 50°C. The module measures just 3.1mm x 3.3mm, and is extremely thin: only 0.6mm high.

Manufactured using semiconductor fabrication techniques, the eTEG is scalable, cost-effective, and can be utilized in a broad range of markets and applications including automotive, government and aerospace, thermal batteries, medical implants and wireless sensor networks.

At the core of the module is Nextreme's breakthrough Thermal Copper Pillar Bump, a structure made from thin-film thermoelectric material embedded into copper pillar solder bumps used in electronic and optoelectronic packaging. The device generates electricity via the Seebeck Effect, where electricity is produced from a temperature differential applied across the device. The temperature difference (ΔT) between the hot (Th) and the cold (Tc) sources leads to change in the difference of the Fermi energies (ΔEF) yielding a potential difference, which drives a current.

Advantages of the eTEG HV56 thermoelectric power generator for clean energy production include:

  • They are solid-state – there are no moving parts;
  • They contain no consumable materials;
  • They have demonstrated very long operating lifetimes.
  • The eTEG HV56 is RoHS compliant and is available with 8-10 week delivery lead time. Pricing is available upon request.
