The combination of low-power design, energy harvesting and ultra-low-power wake-up radios is paving the way for perpetual operation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In this work we present the MagoNode++, a novel WSN platform supporting energy harvesting and radio-triggered wake ups for energy-neutral applications. The MagoNode++ features an energy-harvesting subsystem composed by a light or thermoelectric harvester, a battery manager and a power manager module. It further integrates a

Experimental results show that the MagoNode++ consumes only 2.8 A with the WUR in idle listening and the rest of the platform in sleep state, making it suitable for energy-constrained WSN scenarios and for energy-neutral applications.
