Development of energy management integrated circuits for any-many-multi micro energy harvesting

Project description

Devices enabling battery-free power management systems

Advancing battery-free technology is crucial given the forecasted power management demand. Micro energy harvesting is ideal for reducing battery replacement needs through autonomous sources, of which energy management integrated circuits (EMICs) are a key component. Presently, there is no single EMIC compatible with all energy harvesters. The EU-funded HarvestAll project is overcoming this challenge with its portfolio of devices that will make this possible by taking inputs from all types of ambient energy sources. These products pave the way for a new era of battery-free power management solutions. HarvestAll’s applications are expected to become available to the project team’s global customer-network. Early revenue case study opportunities are also explored.


Creating battery-free “self-sustaining” sensor systems is a key requirement to realising the forecasted billions of interconnected sensors within the Internet of Things. Micro energy harvesting, scavenging energy from the ambient environment, through the use of autonomous micro energy sources (AMES), is an ideal solution; avoiding the need for regular battery replacement.

Along with energy harvesters and energy storage, the major component in an AMES solution is an Energy Management Integrated Circuit (EMIC). The key technical challenges are that each type of energy-harvester has very different electrical characteristics and that the ambient energy is not available all of the time. A single EMIC is required that can effectively harvest from any energy harvester type. No such EMIC exists today.

At Trameto, we are developing a patent protected portfolio of EMICs named ‘HarvestAll’. These devices will deliver any-many-multi energy harvesting functionality to permit applications to harvest all types of ambient energy now, enable the design and development of next generation AMES, and allow the creation of novel AMES applications that were not previously possible. HarvestAll products will be exported to global customers with whom we have built strong relationships through strategic and aggressive business development activities with the support of H2020, Innovate UK, and private seed-funded projects.

Through our customer interactions, we have developed a number of fully qualified, early revenue case study opportunities which will allow us to showcase the functionality of our HarvestAll portfolio.
