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.
