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 10 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.

    Denis Flandre (M’85–SM’03) received the Ms. degree in Electrical Engineering, the Ph.D. degree and the Habilitation from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, in 1986, 1990 and 1999, respectively. His doctoral research was on the modelling of Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) MOS devices for characterization and circuit simulation, his Post-doctoral thesis on a systematic and automated synthesis methodology for MOS analog circuits. Since 2001, he is full-time Professor at UCL. He is currently involved in the research and development of SOI MOS devices, digital and analog circuits, as well as sensors and MEMS, for special applications, more specifically high-speed, low-voltage low-power, microwave, biomedical, radiation-hardened and high-temperature electronics and microsystems. He has authored or co-authored more than 800 technical papers or conference contributions. He is co-inventor of 10 patents. He has organized or lectured many short courses on SOI technology, devices and circuits in universities, industrial companies and conferences. He has received several scientific prizes and best paper awards. He has participated or coordinated numerous research projects funded by regional and European institutions. He has been a member of several EU Networks of Excellence on High-Temperature Electronics, SOI technology, Nanoelectronics and Micro-nano-technology.
