Atmosic Technologies | March 09, 2023
On March 08, 2023, Epishine and Atmosic collaborated to create a self-powered ultrathin beacon. Both parties manufacture energy-harvesting components. In addition, Atmosic Technologies has developed ultra-low-power wireless systems to reduce the energy consumption of connected devices significantly. When Atmosic's ATM3 Bluetooth system-on-chips (SoCs) and Epishine's indoor solar cell are combined, the beacon can operate without batteries. This will dramatically reduce battery waste and promote a more sustainable and battery-free Internet of Things, in addition to lowering the total cost of ownership(TCO) by a substantial amount.
The partnership highlights the potential for electronic companies to design self-powered devices, including Internet of Things sensors, retail solutions (such as electronic shelf labels), and consumer electronics. It also illustrates that energy harvesting is the industry's future, as the field of energy harvesting is expanding rapidly.
Epishine's high-performance, dependable indoor solar cell is manufactured in Sweden through an innovative roll-to-roll process. The solar cell is flexible and thin, allowing for simple incorporation into various applications. Given Epishine's strong environmental focus and the enormous potential for sustainability in buildings, assisting companies in making IoT devices self-powered is its priority.
With beacons as well as other connected devices that do not require disposable batteries, buildings can improve operational efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. Buildings are accountable for 40% of the world's CO2 emissions, so partnerships like these are essential for reducing those emissions.
With Atmosic's Lowest Power Radio and Controlled Energy Harvesting technologies, the company's innovative ATM3 SoCs provide industry-leading power efficiency. Atmosic's ultra-low power solutions are ideal for various connected devices, such as beacons, remote controls, asset trackers, mice, keyboards, and wearables.

Attune, an industry leader with the most comprehensive and flexible sensor platform delivering needed real-time data for digital transformation, today announced that it has received the SOC 2 Type 1 compliance standard certification. The SOC 2 compliance certification distinguishes organizations as leaders in cybersecurity industry standards and data protection.
Developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA), the SOC 2 compliance report is a voluntary compliance for companies that adhere to the highest standard of security confidentiality. Through extensive auditing procedures, SOC 2 aims to monitor companies' internal security controls and data privacy continuously. Additionally, SOC 2 provides assurance of trust and transparency in Attune's cloud service operations, processes and results.
"For a company whose central mission is to protect and provide customers with data, SOC 2 certification legitimizes everything we do. It's a gold medal in this industry," said Serene Almomen, CEO and co-founder of Attune. "Our technology innovations have already been awarded with 50 patents, but this certification is the icing on the cake as we continue to expand."
Attune's IoT technology stack delivers the complete solution by integrating an IoT Cloud Core with configurable, solution-ready IoT Edge hardware designed for rapid installation at a monitoring site. Our partners are assured of having access to needed real-time data/analytics, such as energy consumption, indoor air quality, water, and critical equipment status, to drive their real-time service applications.
"Attune is dedicated to earning the trust and safety of our customers and keeping their data secure. We recognize the importance of providing extensive privacy and data measures to protect our products, Internet of Things (IoT) services, and users," said Julien Stamatakis, CTO, and co-founder of Attune.
