For a development of energy harvesting system, the fact of radio waves and ambient RF (Radio Frequency) sources, including passive devices along with novel circuits, are very closely related to mobile charging devices and energy storage system. The use of schottky diode and voltage multiplier circuits to express on the ambient RF sources surrounding the system is one way that has seen a sudden rise in use for energy harvesting. Practically speaking, the RF and ambient sources can be provided by active and passive devices such as inductors, capacitors, diode, etc. In this paper, we present a schottky based voltage multiplier circuits for mobile charging device which integrate the power generation module with radio wave generation module. We also discuss that multi-stage schematic, e.g., three-stage schottky diode based voltage multiplier circuits, for a continuing effort on energy harvesting system.
