Matrix Industries a manufacturer of efficient thermoelectric products for Energy Harvesting and Torex Semiconductor Ltd. announced the formation of a co-marketing and co-product development relationship aimed at increasing product adoption in energy harvesting targeted for the applications of IoT and Wearable worldwide.

Matrix and Torex work together to develop the solutions, including an energy harvesting reference design for sensors to combine Matrix expertise in thermoelectric material science and thermal engineering and Torex expertise in low power consumption and energy efficient power management technologies and line-up the innovative products for battery-less and low powered applications.

Partnering between Torex and Matrix can more effectively address the needs and challenges to spread energy harvesting all over the world.  Benefitting from on-the-ground knowledge and insight, we may capture first mover advantage in introducing the innovative products to meet evolving demands unique to battery-less and low power applications with combining Torex power management ICs.

Matrix and Torex provide a complete off the shelf reference for Watt Smart Farming and Industrial IoT applications. This reference design uses a Matrix’s PowerTile, a Thermo-Electric-Generator based power source, Matrix’s Mercury energy harvesting IC and power management solutions from Torex to harvest energy to power IoT devices and eliminate the needs to change batteries.
