ONiO’s MCUs are joining forces with Epishine’s indoor solar cells to create  sustainable devices that eliminate the need for battery replacement and charging— cutting down on electronic waste and reducing running costs.

“Our alliance with Epishine marks a seamless leap into a sustainable technological future and the start of a Nordic industry initiative to drive sustainable electronics into the future,” says Kjetil Meisal, CEO of ONiO, “Epishine’s organic solar cells and unique ability to harness energy from low light conditions, combined with our extremely energy-efficient microcontrollers, we’re seamlessly integrating the upper class of solar and semiconductor technologies. This paves the way for the next generation of IoT devices—sustainable, maintenance-free, and truly autonomous.”

ONiO.zero’s MCUs claim to have exceptional cold start capabilities, powering up in mere seconds—a tall order for other technologies that need several minutes. This not only enhances the user experience by dramatically slashing wait times but also positions ONiO at the forefront of instant-on IoT solutions, seamlessly complementing Epishine’s organic photovoltaic innovations.
