Alta Devices to Describe Why Solar Isn't Just for Sunlight Anymore

Alta Devices:

What      

Alta Devices (www.altadevices.com) will describe how its AnyLight™ technology can power sensors for a variety of applications using indoor light. This is a result of Alta’s unique technology that not only holds a world-record for efficiency at 28.8%, but also captures substantial energy under extremely dim indoor lighting conditions.

 
Where

Sensors Expo, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, Ill.

 
When

June 24-26, 2014 in Rosemont, Ill. Booth #927. Special presentation on using this technology for autonomous sensors, June 25, 2014 from 3:30-4:10 pm.

 
Why

Big data starts with small sensors. By 2020, there will be over 25 billion devices connected via the internet. Since many of these will be unplugged from a fixed power source, providing power will be a fundamental concern. Alta Devices will discuss this issue and how its technology can provide power by converting energy from ambient light. This has the potential to address a critical need for sensors in home, building, and factory automation as well as the internet of things and wearable devices.
