Epishine, Minew and e-peas unveil light-powered asset tracker

Minew, a leader in innovative tracking solutions, has announced the upcoming launch of its latest innovation, the battery-free asset tracker, an ultra-thin device that leverages advanced energy-harvesting technologies. Scheduled for release at the end of the year, this pioneering innovation is as slim as a credit card and designed to transform asset management with its self-sustaining and sustainable features.

“Today, we mark a new era in asset tracking with our revolutionary credit card-sized device, unburdened by batteries. It redefines asset monitoring, making it seamless and sustainable,” said Shain, Product Director, Minew.

Harvesting and converting energy

The battery-free asset tracker incorporates e-peas energy management IC that efficiently harvests and converts energy from both RF signals and light into usable power, ensuring uninterrupted operation. Complementing this technology, the device integrates Epishine’s ultra-thin, flexible, and low-light optimised solar cells, which are specifically designed to maximise energy capture even in low-light conditions.

“Two of Epishine’s strengths are the thin flexibility of our solar cells and their high efficiency in very low light conditions. For this type of products, we seem to have a unique product-market fit,” underlined Mattias Josephson, CSO and Co-founder Epishine

This asset tracker offers a hassle-free solution by eliminating the need for battery replacements, thereby reducing waste and operational interruptions. Its real-time tracking capabilities and seamless integration into personal and commercial assets make it ideal for a wide range of applications, from personal valuables to business logistics.

Key features

“This highlights the advantages of our energy harvesting PMIC, designed to seamlessly work with light power, making it ideal for asset tracking.
