Barcelona, Spain – February 27, 2023 – Atmosic Technologies, an innovator in energy harvesting platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced it is working with SEI Robotics, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of Android TV and IoT devices, to develop a range of ultra-low power smart home products. Thanks to Atmosic’s ultra-low-power wireless technology, these smart devices will be able to last for years on a single battery. Some devices will also leverage Atmosic’s intelligently controlled energy harvesting technology to harvest energy from indoor ambient sources, further extending battery life and, in some cases, allowing devices to operate without any batteries.
“Atmosic’s innovative low-power wireless and energy harvesting technologies are driving a new era of sustainable innovation, helping to reduce the tech industry’s battery waste problem without companies having to sacrifice design aesthetics,” said Mike Fortin, SVP Global Sales for Atmosic. “We look forward to seeing SEI Robotics deploying our ultra-low-power solutions so consumers can avoid the inconvenience of maintaining or changing batteries in their smart home for a product’s entire lifecycle.”

SEI’s smart home products – such as motion sensors will integrate Atmosic’s extremely low-power Bluetooth® LE ATM2 system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions or the company’s energy-harvesting Bluetooth LE ATM3 SoC solutions. The ATM series offers much lower power consumption than competitors due to Atmosic’s intelligent power management, its extremely Low Power Radio, and the company’s On-demand Wake Up technologies which dramatically reduce power consumption so connected devices can last for years on a single battery, without needing replacement. The ATM3 series adds the capability to harvest energy from various energy sources including ambient photovoltaic (PV) power from both indoor and outdoor lighting. Atmosic’s technology can help save billions of batteries from ending up in landfills in the coming years as end designs can use battery power more intelligently or can often operate without any batteries at all.
“Atmosic’s Bluetooth SoCs are enabling us to innovate in new ways and create more sustainable connected devices that require little to no battery maintenance by consumers,” said Jeff Yin, CEO at SEI Robotics. “We selected Atmosic’s solutions for their unparalleled power-efficiency and highly integrated designs that allow us to meet consumer demand for differentiated products in compact form factors.”
Atmosic architected its wireless connectivity solutions to deliver industry-leading power savings from the ground up. The company’s ATM2 and ATM3 SoCs combine an ultra-low power Bluetooth LE with an integrated power management unit. The ATM3 also adds intelligent management of energy harvesting sources to improve its efficiency. This highly integrated design, which enables a direct connection to energy harvesting elements like PV cells and radio frequency (RF) antennas, also is more efficient as energy is not converted multiple times and is done without an additional separate energy harvesting chip, therefore, reducing the overall BOM. Furthermore, the compact design makes it easy for companies to integrate a smaller PV cell for connected devices, further reducing both the cost and area required for the PV cell. Atmosic’s solutions also give companies the option to use harvested RF energy to run the devices and store energy for future use.
