Printed Circuit Boards are primarily designed to mechanically support and connect electronic components electrically thus making them a fundamental part of almost all electronic systems. PCBs are also crucial for thermal management by acting as a heat sink. This allows transfer of heat away from the high-powered components that are likely to overheat as a result of overworking.

EM Microelectronics has staked the claim of having manufactured a chip that starts on 300mV and operates on only 100mV making it the lowest figures in terms of voltage for solar harvester chips. The Swiss chip company is owned by Swatch and has a long storied background in being a power player for ultra-low power electronics. The EM8500 energy harvester chip work can work form TEGs as well as photo-voltaic cells, and on-chips are two peak power tracking algorithms  with one for solar cells and one for TEGs.
