This work presents a development and miniaturization of a rotational electromagnetic energy harvesting (EH) generator. The energy harvesting generator is driven mechanically by pushing the button. The energy harvester system has an integrated mechanism for movement conversion. This mechanism converts the linear movement of the button into rotation with a rotational speed of 1000 rpm. An electromagnetically part of harvester consists of in FR-4 embedded multilayer planar coils and of multipole NdFeB hard magnets. The miniaturized energy harvester generates a maximum open circuit output voltage of about 500 mV with duration of about 2 s and a maximum short circuit output current higher than 40 mA.
