Semtech and Exeger Demonstrate Solar Harvesting Technology for Internet of Things (IoT) Sensors

Exagger PowerFuel Solar energy harvesting cell technology combined with LoRa Edge platform from Semtech Enabling more efficient and Sustainable IoT tracking applications.

Semtech Corporation has announced its collaboration with Exeger, a Swedish deep-tech company that makes fully customizable solar cells.

Combining Semtech’s LoRa Edge™ asset management platform with… Exagger PowerFuel Solar cell technology significantly extends the battery life of asset trackers and environmental sensors.

Semtech’s LoRa Edge scans GNSS satellites as well as Wi-Fi network SSIDs and splits processing between IoT devices and the LoRa Cloud™ for location determination. Cloud-based solution software significantly reduces power consumption and extends battery life. Exeger’s Powerfoyle software is uniquely flexible and robust and can be seamlessly integrated into any electronic device. Solar cell technology converts all forms of light to charge and power devices with clean, endless energy.

“Combining the advantages of Powerfoyle with the ultra-low power capabilities of Semtech’s LoRa® devices will provide IoT applications with long or even unlimited battery life,” said Dr. Oskar Himberg, Exeger’s chief product integration officer. “Together, we’re one step closer to energy independence with more sustainable products powered by endless clean energy.”

The patented Powerfoyle material in IoT sensors integrates with Semtech’s LoRa Edge chip-to-cloud platform to create a new standard for green platforms for the IoT industry. The combination of both technologies is expected to spur a world of new solar-powered tracking applications for geolocation use cases, including indoor and outdoor asset tracking, global supply chain logistics, agriculture, smart utilities, and smart cities.

“LoRa devices enable smart IoT applications that help solve some of our planet’s biggest challenges.” said Mark Bigollo, vice president and general manager of Semtech’s Wireless and Sensing Products Group.

“The Semtech and Exeger collaboration will enable manufacturers to develop IoT devices that take advantage of new energy harvesting technology for a smarter and more sustainable future.”
