Exeger and Atmosic Technologies partner to create energy harvesting solutions for the IoT sector

Stockholm, Sweden – Exegerthe Swedish deep tech company announces its partnership with US-based semiconductor company Atmosic Technologies. The partnership will enable companies to create attractive energy harvesting solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) sector.

Both Exeger and Atmosic develop components within the field of energy harvesting. Stockholm-headquartered Exeger is the inventor and manufacturer of the groundbreaking Powerfoyle solar cell technology that converts all forms of light into clean energy. Exeger’s photovoltaic cells can be produced in any shape and size, which will help drive the adoption of light-powered products in the next generation of connected consumer and industrial devices. California-headquartered Atmosic Technologies develops innovative energy harvesting wireless System-on-Chips (SoCs) and IoT modules with ultra-low power features that include an integrated boost converter and sophisticated power management technologies to optimally control, store, and distribute available power.

Following Exeger’s announcement last year of the Powerfoyle Indoor platform, which has been optimised for low light levels, Atmosic and Exeger’s collaboration makes it easy for manufacturers to develop devices with significantly extended or even endless battery life when utilising Powerfoyle. Atmosic’s low-power wireless chipsets and Exeger’s solar cells create attractive solutions for low-power standards-driven IoT devices such as Bluetooth remote controls, sensors, beacons, and keyboards. The combined technologies work especially well for devices in a variety of applications from the smart home to enterprise, healthcare, and industrial environments.

“Atmosic’s extremely low-power solutions, combined with our Powerfoyle solar cell technology, will help reduce – and in many cases eliminate – the use of disposable batteries for IoT devices,” says Giovanni Fili, CEO and founder of Exeger. “This opens up a huge opportunity in the [$400 billion (€400.09 billion)] IoT market which will greatly accelerate its transition to clean endless energy.”

“Our partnership with Exeger enables our customers to create innovative IoT products that operate reliably and robustly even without a battery and in the lowest of lighting conditions,” says David Su, CEO at Atmosic. “Our combined solutions will help reduce the need for costly battery replacement and maintenance of IoT deployments, fueling a more sustainable IoT in the future.”
