Extreme low Power

Systems operating at very low power are characterized by continuous and rapid progress.

For this reason, all techniques must be rapidly updated to the state of the art components dedicated to primary supply and energy harvesting.

Devices and applications are strongly interlaced, providing excellent opportunities for innovation.

The devices are designed for a variety of types:


  • miniaturized wireless sensors and Internet of Things
  • surveillance systems and remote alarm
  • health monitoring systems
  • systems for building automation and control
  • authentication systems


Obviously it is impossible to draw up a complete list due to the continued evolution of applications.

In this area, the methodology is mainly conditioned by the type of power supplied to the circuit.


Battery Primary Cell

Is the most frequent and economical, balancing appropriately the requirements of performance and autonomy.

For each application, the design is approached from the study of energy balance, identifying all use cases and achievable performance.

Miniaturization is one of the most important characteristics and is part of the preliminary study of this type of circuits.

For wireless systems can be designed and implemented specific proprietary communication protocols in order to improve the performance of radio range and power consumption.


Energy Harvesting

In many cases, this type of solution is applied to wireless devices, such as Bluetooth Low Energy, NFC and low-power radio link.

Are implemented all solutions capture and energy management.


Sistemi misti

Can be studied combinations of technologies based on specific use cases.
