LR0GC02 solar module

Sharp Corp. has developed the LR0GC02 solar module for mobile devices that features a thickness of 0.8mm, touted to be thinnest level.

Solar power generation is drawing attention worldwide as environmentally friendly clean energy, and is expected to see widespread use not only for residential use, but also to power mobile devices.

This new solar module makes effective use of compact semiconductor packaging technology to achieve 0.8mm thickness. The solar cells that make up the module are based on polycrystalline silicon and deliver a maximum power of 300mW, and as an auxiliary power source for mobile devices, will contribute to saving energy. In addition, the electrode pattern on the cell surface can be formed to meet the requirements of device manufacturers, leading to increased design flexibility for mobile devices..

Samples of the LR0GC02 are available for 3,000 yen ($31).
