Our mission

E-peas’ mission is to enable the seamless operation of all connected nodes, anywhere, anytime, in any conditions with smart, innovative solutions.

Overview

e-peas stands for Electronic Portable Energy Autonomous Systems.

The company was founded in 2014 on the conviction that the trillions of connected nodes of the IoT to be deployed in the next few years will require disruptive solutions to extend batteries life-time. Only two ways exist to reach this objective:

  • by increasing the amount of harvested energy
  • by drastically reducing the energy consumption of all power consuming blocs of the system.

At e-peas, we believe that new applications will ultimately be made possible by the combination of both approaches.

Relying on 15 years of research and its patented disruptive technologies, e-peas offers a portfolio of products including photovoltaic, thermoelectric, vibration, and RF harvesters interface ICs, microcontrollers and sensors solutions, all thought to be easily interfaced in order to improve system robustness and reduce your application development time.
