Energy harvesting with MEMS

Energy harvesting demonstration project – Creating a new value chain for developing pacemakers with energy harvesting technology with Silex smart-MEMPHIS project – From research over design and production to end-user

Million € funding
Funding instrument Horizon 2020 Information and Communications Technologies
Project duration 3.5 years, Jan 2015 - Jul 2018

The project aims to design, manufacture and test a miniaturized autonomous energy supply based on harvesting vibrational energy with piezo-MEMS (microelectromechanical system) energy harvesters.

How we reached the goals

Spinverse assisted the leading MEMS manufacturer Silex in its partner search, project application, and coordination management for smart-MEMPHIS, a project aiming to get devices to power themselves via energy harvesting methods.

Key takeaways

The energy harvesting device will be demonstrated in two very demanding and different applications: a leadless minimally invasive pacemaker and a wireless sensor network for structural health monitoring
