Default Tiny, tiny DC-DC converter

I saw this on the www version of EDN mag -- a JFET based DC-DC converter which will operate as low as 300 mV -- you could power it off a solar cell or thermopile:


output current is limited to 2 milliamps -- enough for some fleapower applications.

I like it! Pleny power for running some microcontroller, LCD, and if you charge some goldcap with it, you can use that reserve to power 433MHz transmitters in burst mode.... Thanx!
More Power Igor! More Power!
