Crispytronics has been manufacturing high-quality breakout boards since 2012.  Our energy harvesting breakout is a smart, low-cost alternative to Linear Tech's development board.  Check out our sample project, which provides a detailed explanation on how to use the energy harvester.  If you have any questions or comments, then please email me at kris.barrett@crispytronics.com.  I welcome engineers, students, and hobbyists of all ages and experience levels.  I look forward to hearing from you!
