Acal BFi announces strategic partnership with Atmosic Technologies.
Wokingham, UK – Jan 2024, Acal BFi, a prominent technology solutions provider, today announced a new strategic partnership with Atmosic Technologies, an innovator of ultra-low-power wireless platforms for the Internet of Things (IoT). This collaboration marks a significant step forward in driving IoT innovation and dramatically reducing reliance on environmentally harmful battery products.
The partnership between Acal BFi and Atmosic will empower companies to design sustainable connected devices in line with Europe’s environmental goals. Numerous applications, including beacons, remote controls, keyboards, mice, asset trackers, and fitness wearables, will greatly benefit from the enhanced efficiency and extended battery life offered by Atmosic's innovative products.
Atmosic’s portfolio of SoCs utilise the company’s ultra-low power wireless technologies with energy harvesting to help liberate IoT devices from battery constraints and reduce reliance on single-use batteries. Atmosic's wireless solutions all support Bluetooth—plus, the company’s new ATM34/e series also supports Matter, Thread, and Zigbee—and significantly reduce power consumption compared to existing alternatives.
Since Atmosic’s SoCs offer on-demand wake-up and managed energy harvesting, developers can substantially extend the battery life of devices and, in some cases, enable devices to operate entirely without batteries. Atmosic also speeds up the development process by offering an array of reference designs that expedite the transition from concept to market-leading solutions.
Acal BFi's distinctiveness as a partner lies in its comprehensive design approach. Developers not only gain access to Atmosic's cutting-edge technology but Acal BFi's team of in-house engineers and Wireless Technology Centre. This unique capability enables customers to design, test, and prototype custom or intricate solutions that align with their specific needs to accelerate product development and deployment.
“We are thrilled to join forces with Atmosic and integrate their groundbreaking wireless connectivity solutions into our portfolio,” said Lee Austin, Business Development Director of Communications at Acal BFi. “This partnership underscores our commitment to offering customers access to the latest advancements in technology that have the potential to reshape entire industries while making sustainability a priority. Together with Atmosic, we will empower businesses to create innovative, sustainable, and battery-less devices.”
“Together, Atmosic and Acal BFi are on a mission to reshape the IoT landscape by reducing battery waste,” said Scott Cooper, Senior Director of Sales and Business Development, EMEA at Atmosic. “Acal BFi’s comprehensive design and testing services will help reduce the barriers to entry in the IoT market, allowing more companies to leverage Atmosic’s transformative wireless connectivity solutions and create a variety of sustainable devices.”
