Sol Chip is an award-winning energy-harvesting company that has developed a maintenance-free Everlasting Solar Battery.
The compact battery can provide energy for the lifetime of low-power devices.
Sol Chip’s technology provides a platform for disruptive applications such as precision agriculture and Internet of Things (IoT).
Sol Chip’s innovative technology is designed to enable autonomous operation of devices and systems powered by a plug and play solar energy source.
The 21st century has created an enormous demand for low-power applications such as wireless devices. Their ability to operate autonomously is limited by battery lifespan. The need to replace batteries causes considerable downtime, is expensive, and takes a heavy toll on the environment due to battery waste disposal.
Sol Chip’s total applicable market size is estimated at $9 billion in 2017, with many segments growing more than 10% per year. Examples of segments that Sol Chip intends to penetrate with its first-generation product are wireless sensors and wireless sensor networks (WSN) for precision agriculture (e.g., drip irrigation, herd monitoring); environmental monitoring (e.g., humidity, light, temp, color, fertilizers, dimensions); and traceability systems (RFID). The combined value of the WSN segment is estimated to reach more than $1.2 billion in 2015.
