Californian startup Matrix Industries has partnered with CMOS power management ICs manufacturer Torex Semiconductor to develop a novel thermal energy harvesting reference design for sensors.

The energy harvesting partnership will combine Matrix’ expertise in thermoelectric material sciences and thermal engineering with and Torex expertise in low power consumption and energy efficient power management technologies to deliver a tile-shaped energy harvesting platform, measuring about 100x100x25mm and capable of an average power output in excess of 1mW, with peak outputs up to 8mW.

Matrix and Torex provide a complete off the shelf reference for Watt Smart Farming and Industrial IoT applications, based on Matrix’s PowerTile Thermo-Electric-Generator (TEG) tied with the company’s Mercury energy harvesting chip IC and power management solutions from Torex.

The companies anticipate such power tiles will enable battery-less IoT sensor solutions.
