TMCNet:  Dust Networks to Demonstrate Self-Powered IPv6 Wireless Sensor Network

[June 21, 2011]

HAYWARD, Calif. –(Business Wire)–

Dust Networks®, the leader in intelligent wireless sensor
network solutions, today announced that they will demonstrate a SmartMesh®
IP 6LoWPAN wireless network
running on harvested energy at the IDTechEx
Wireless Sensor Network RTLS Summit
in Munich, Germany, June
21 – 22. For the first time anywhere, all of the nodes in the network,
including the IPv6 routing nodes, will run on energy harvested from a
variety of devices including the Micropelt TE-Power thermogenerator and
the Cymbet™ EnerChip™ CC rechargeable solid state battery
trickle-charged by a small off-the-shelf daylight powered solar

“The SmartMesh product family provides a unique convergence with energy
harvesting because all of their mesh network nodes can run on harvested
energy,” said Burkhard Habbe, Vice President of Business Development for Micropelt
. “With the further decreased power requirements of Dust’s new
SmartMesh IP technology we can now run even more applications on
thermoharvesters at rather low gradients, eliminating both wires and
battery maintenance.”

“By combining EnerChip solid state energy storage solutions with Dust
Network’s Eterna™ technology, Cymbet’s customers are able to deploy
completely self-powered wireless sensor networks,” said Steve Grady,
Vice President of Marketing for Cymbet
. “The overall power requirement is so much lower than
with competing wireless products that this is a maintenance-free,
extremely compact, eco-friendly networking option.”

“It appars that much of the WSN growth likely in 2011 will be due to
market demand for solutions to overall network connectivity and
battery-free operational constraints,” said Kirsten West, Principal
Analyst with West
Technology Research Solutions
, an independent market research and
consulting firm that follows emerging wireless technologies and the
products and industries which will adopt those technologies.

“The practical impact of Dust’s focus on low power 802.15.4 SoCs and
networking is evident in this multi-vendor demonstration of self-powered
wireless sensing,” said Brenda Glaze, Vice President of Sales and
Marketing for Dust Networks. “With no wires to install and no batteries
to change, the initial and on-going costs of installation and
maintenance are slashed.”

The standard SmartMesh
IP Evaluation Kit
provides everything needed to demonstrate wireless
mesh network performance, data monitoring, digital actuation, and event
notification. For more information on SmartMesh IP evaluation kits,

About Micropelt

Micropelt GmbH, Freiburg, Germany, develops, produces and markets the
world’s smallest and most effective thermoelectric elements for
clean-tech micro energy harvesting, thermal sensing, cycling and
cooling. The company employs 25 staff and currently commissions their
first million-unit production facility, also located in Germany.

Micropelt’s thermoelectric chips are based on a patented scalable thin
film micro-structuring platform technology, which minimizes component
size while maximizing power density for energy harvesting, cooling or
thermal cycling applications. Process-inherent economies-of-scale break
previous cost and price barriers of conventional thermoelectrics.
Batteries become obsolete as cost-free electricity from waste heat
powers wireless sensor networks for their entire life.
Chip-thermogenerators also boast unprecedented sensitivity, resolution
and dynamics in sensing heat flux and temperature change. For more
