nPZero technology

Offers up to 99% reduction in power consumption

chip

The nPZero is a new architecture and new method to dramatically reduce power consumption

nPZero dramatically increases the battery life of your devices while keeping monitoring functions intact:

The ability to configure and check sensors at extremely low power and wake up a device on events, extending low power modes while staying responsive. 

Deep sleep and the ability to wake up a device based on a schedule or at a specific time.

Advanced power management including fast and flexible power cycling, reducing power consumption in active modes.

Subthreshold IC design

In current designs, transistors operate in a region that requires currents in the order of microamps. We design our entire integrated circuit to operate in the subthreshold region, which enables us to reduce the power consumption by a factor of 1,000.

A smart power manager

nPZero functions as an advanced power management hub for any system’s wireless chip, processor, sensors, and other peripherals. Our IC manages power-hungry microcontrollers, sensors, and radios, bringing them back online only when needed. All critical functions of the IoT device remain intact while adding low-power capabilities.

Proven performance 

Our performance is proven on silicon and verified with high precision instruments.

Graph

Compatible with any wireless technology, and a wide range of sensors

nPZero is technology agnostic and can function as a power management hub for any host, and I2C and SPI peripherals through an extremely flexible structure. All functions of the host and peripherals are kept intact while adding low-power capabilities. The system is also open for integration with any back-end provider.

Enables harvesting more energy than you ever thought possible, never running out of power

Completely new opportunities arise with a power consumption low enough to enable net positive contribution from energy harvesting.
