At ELECTRONICA, ITEN Present an Autonomous Asset Monitoring Solution Based on a 100µA.h Micro-Battery!
ITEN, the deep tech company, which just closed a financing round of 80M€ to become a key player in the manufacture of solid-state lithium-ion micro-batteries, shall take the opportunity of next ELECTRONICA exhibition to present a breakthrough in the way of powering autonomous embedded systems.

When observing the battery-powered electronic solutions, ITEN came indeed to the following conclusions:
- A lot of electronic designs relies on very polluting coin cells, difficult to assemble on Printed Circuit Boards, costly to recycle and requiring periodic maintenance to replace the battery once empty.
- Depending on the countries, only 30 to 50% of such coin cells are effectively recycled.
- Autonomous embedded systems require less and less energy to operate; however, from time to time, the power supply must deliver high current pulses for instance to drive RF transceivers or actuators; therefore, most electronic designers must use oversized coin cells because such batteries are known to deliver only small currents.
From a battery standpoint, this means that a lower battery capacity could be used if the battery would be able to deliver the required power and could be recharged regularly.
This is precisely what ITEN shall demonstrate during ELECTRONICA: ITEN shall indeed present an autonomous asset monitoring solution, including sensors and a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) System-on-a-chip, and powered by the combination of an indoor photovoltaic cell from DRACULA Technologies (LAYERR Technology) and ITEN’s powerful rechargeable SMD micro-battery of only 100µA.h. The solution operating 24/7 can send data every 10 seconds during the day and every 4 to 5 minutes during the night (this frequency could be increased if using a 250µA.h micro-battery instead). By comparison, a coin cell of at least 100mA.h would be required to get the same operating conditions but with a limited lifetime.
By extension, similar designs could be used in applications like BLE asset tracking, BLE tags, beacons, and sensor data loggers.
On stand B4-120, ITEN shall also demo micro-batteries used as a back-up power supply to keep some clocks or microcontrollers active or to send maintenance alerts in case of failure of the main power source.
By doing so, ITEN clearly reassert their strategy to progressively replace most of the coin cells used worldwide by ecofriendly rechargeable SMD micro-batteries containing neither heavy metals, nor toxic materials, nor organic solvents and showing a carbon footprint 200 to 1000 times less compared to coin cells.
After 8 years of R&D, ITEN have been granted more than 200 patents worldwide. ITEN are an integrated device manufacturer, controlling the complete production chain from nanomaterial synthesis up to the battery packaging and test. Even with low capacities, ITEN micro-batteries can deliver power and high current pulses. They are a concrete response to electronics designers looking for ecofriendly alternatives to coin cells. In this respect, ITEN solutions fit in with the European Directive recommending getting rid of non-rechargeable batteries in all electronic system designs from year 2030.
ITEN is the leading company developing and manufacturing ecofriendly solid-state lithium-ion SMD micro batteries. Such micro batteries are rechargeable In a few minutes and can deliver power over a wide operating temperature range. They are used in many applications as back-up power supply, or to power autonomous sensor nodes or in applications like tracking and monitoring, smartphone peripherals, smart cards, medical devices, home and building automation, smart cities, wearables, and e-textiles.

ADVA’s new OSA 3350 SePRC ™ optical cesium clock breaks records with industry’s longest holdover8.12.2022 09:00:00 CET | Press release
ADVA (FSE: ADV) today launched its latest optical cesium atomic clock solution, providing unprecedented protection for critical network infrastructure systems that rely on synchronization from GNSS. The new OSA 3350 Super ePRC (SePRC™) delivers extensive timing holdover with high-performance stability and lifetime that significantly outperforms any other solution on the market. It offers a vital lifeline to time-as-a-service (TaaS) and GNSS-backup-as-a-service (GBaaS) providers, defense organizations, communication network operators, power utilities and transportation network operators looking to mitigate the risk of jamming and spoofing attacks. As a GBaaS solution, the OSA 3350 SePRC™ provides a backup to satellite-based synchronization, helping prevent severe harm to businesses and society that long GNSS outages can cause. The new device will enable the most robust PNT solution on the market. “Across all nations, our well-being and safety are more dependent than ever on critical net
Record-Breaking Demand for Alternative Residence and Citizenship8.12.2022 08:39:00 CET | Press release
The number of high-net-worth individuals enquiring about investment migration options has more than doubled since the coronavirus was first reported three years ago, with record numbers of wealthy international investors now looking to diversify their residence and citizenship options amid unprecedented global volatility. Henley & Partners has also seen a huge surge in interest and applications from citizens of highly developed countries such as Canada, the UK, and the US compared to pre-pandemic times, with Americans now the top client nationality seeking alternative residence and/or additional citizenship. Henley & Partners CEO Dr. Juerg Steffen says with many economies now in a post-pandemic phase plagued by security, political, and economic risks, wealthy families are revisiting their priorities to ensure that their legacies, wealth, and lifestyles are protected and future-proofed. “For high-net-worth investors, the optionality of living in or conducting business in a country of th
Primary endpoint met in the CLEAR Outcomes Trial of bempedoic acid showing statistically significant relative risk reduction in major adverse CV events8.12.2022 08:00:00 CET | Press release
Daiichi Sankyo Europe, (hereafter, Daiichi Sankyo) announced today that the primary endpoint was met in the Phase 3 cardiovascular CLEAR (Cholesterol Lowering via Bempedoic acid, an ATP citrate lyase (ACL)-Inhibiting Regimen) Outcomes Trial, demonstrating statistically significant relative risk reduction in major adverse CV events (MACE-4) in patients treated with 180 mg/day bempedoic acid compared to placebo (with no or very low statin background).1,3 Comprehensive data from the CLEAR Outcomes Trial, led by US-based biotech company Esperion Therapeutics Inc., will be presented at a key medical congress in early 2023 and subsequently submitted to applicable regulatory authorities. The initial findings from the data indicate that bempedoic acid is the first oral, ACL inhibitor known to reduce both LDL-C levels and risk of major adverse CV events.1 The findings are congruent with previous significant evidence and the latest clinical guidelines highlighting that the lower a person’s LDL-C
ONWARD Reports Interim Clinical Outcomes for Implantable ARC Therapy Demonstrating Potential to Improve Blood Pressure Regulation after Spinal Cord Injury8.12.2022 07:30:00 CET | Press release
ONWARD Medical N.V. (Euronext: ONWD), the medical technology company creating innovative therapies to restore movement, independence, and health in people with spinal cord injury (SCI), today reported interim clinical outcomes from the first ten1 people treated to regulate blood pressure with implantable ARC Therapy, ONWARD’s targeted spinal cord stimulation technique. ARC Therapy immediately improved blood pressure levels for all participants; this benefit has been sustained for the duration of the current follow-up period. Participants have also reported improved quality of life, increased energy and vitality, and reduced dizziness. Aaron Phillips, PhD, Associate Professor, Physiology and Pharmacology, Biomedical Engineering, Cardiac Sciences, Clinical Neurosciences, Cumming School of Medicine, University of Calgary, and the Principal Investigator of the HEMO study, said: “Low blood pressure has long been a hidden complication of spinal cord injury that often goes unrecognized and le
