Atmosic Unveils Photovoltaic Solution for IoT Device Connectivity

By Ken Briodagh

According to a recent release, Atmosic Technologies, maker of low power wireless IoT solutions, has launched a photovoltaic-powered connectivity product that is designed to extend the battery life of IoT devices through capturing photovoltaic power from ambient light sources.

“The light around us offers abundant energy to be harvested, both indoors, even in lowlight and outdoors in solar light. Atmosic leverages these sources to harness photovoltaic power for IoT devices,” said David Su, CEO, Atmosic. “Ambient and solar power are hugely beneficial energy sources for connected IOT deployments, particularly in environments that require wireless location-based sensors in outdoor venues such as malls, stadiums, factories, retail stores, enterprises and the connected home. To make energy harvesting a viable power source, Atmosic is providing the industry’s lowest power Bluetooth for IoT.”

Atmosic’s photovoltaic-power connectivity solution is a feature of its M3 series, built on the Bluetooth 5 standards platform and the company’s Lowest Power Radio and On-demand Wake-Up technologies. The M3 Series silicon is sampling with customers now, and will be in mass production at the end of Q2.
