About Nexperia Energy Harvesting Solutions powered by Nowi technology
Nexperia is a leading expert in the high-volume production of essential semiconductors, including energy harvesting solutions powered by Nowi technology.

Who We Are

Nexperia Energy Harvesting Solutions specializes in the development of energy harvesting power management technology. We have developed a chip that combines the world’s smallest footprint, lowest cost BOM with the best harvesting performance.

What We Do

We have developed novel energy harvesting power management ICs that combines top harvesting performance with the world’s smallest assembly footprint and lowest BOM cost. Thereby it simplifies the design process and lowers the threshold for any company to develop ‘Plug & Forget’ products.

Fundamentally Nexperia believes that for the physical world to be connected to the digital world, a new approach for powering devices is required. Traditionally we power devices by bringing energy to them. We do this in the form of batteries and cables, however at the incredible scale of a connected world this has become a limiting factor. Instead of bringing energy, Nowi technology aims to enable products to use the energy that is already available at its location.

How Did It Start

Nowi was founded in 2016 by Omar Link (Nowi COO) and Simon van der Jagt (Nowi CEO), building upon their idea which started as an academic project. Back then, the Internet of Things (IoT) was one of the hottest topics predicting that in 2020 there would be tens of billions connected devices. As that time frame grew closer, Nowi’s founders identified one critical bottleneck for the IoT: The power supply. The low-power IoT devices would need a cable or a battery to supply the power, and both options were either too expensive or simply impossible to implement for a lot of IoT business cases. In 2015 Simon and Omar started building on the existing decades of knowledge in several research groups at university, and shortly after appointed Dr. André L. R. Mansano as CTO of Nowi. The Nowi journey had started.

Where Are We Now

Nexperia Energy Harvesting Solutions (former Nowi) was acquired by Nexperia in November 2022.

Headquartered in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, Nexperia is a leading expert in the high-volume production of essential semiconductors, components that are required by every electronic design in the world. The manufacturing capacity and capability of Nexperia as well as its global infrastructure will enable higher volume production and shipping of the energy harvesting solutions.

Partners

From academic research projects, to collaborations with some of the world’s leading electronic companies and a range of innovation awards. Nowi has gotten a significant amount of industry recognition over the years.
