Dracula diversifies indoors light suck
Dracula Technologies, a pioneer in energy harvesting from indoor light, has launched the LAYER Solutions division to facilitate the transition to organic photovoltaic (OPV) technology for indoor IoT applications.
The division will create, and license fully functional products powered by Dracula’s innovative OPV LAYER technology, which not only eliminates the need for batteries but also reduces environmental impact and lowers costs.
The LAYER Solutions division leverages Dracula Technologies’ intellectual property and know-how to serve developers of low-power electronic devices throughout the product lifecycle and complements the company’s existing technological and industrial structure.
By going beyond supplying OPV modules, the company aims to accelerate and facilitate the transition to OPV technology for a wide range of indoor IoT applications.
This strategic announcement marks a significant move in Dracula’s approach to the market, making the company an attractive partner for IoT manufacturers and integrators seeking to develop environmentally sustainable and cost-effective solutions for their customers.
“Our team has years of unique experience in integrating the different building blocks required to power a device,” says Brice Cruchon, CEO, and founder of Dracula Technologies. “Our new LAYER Solutions division brings this expertise to customers, making it easier to transition to OPV.”
The LAYER Solutions team will work to design and develop ready-to-use products, ensuring the most efficient and cost-effective solutions.
Dracula Technologies has now a full offering with three divisions to address customer needs, from producing prototypes and pre-series and manufacturing OPV modules, to create and license fully functional products:
• LAYER Lab: Prototyping to test ideas.
The LAYER Lab is Dracula Technologies’ R&D division that specializes in developing prototypes and pre-series for proofs of concept. The team is focused on testing new ideas and pushing the limits of what is possible with energy harvesting technology. This division provides customers with a fast and efficient way to test their ideas and turn them into working prototypes.
• LAYER Factory: Mass production to support full product rollout.
The LAYER Factory division is responsible for producing LAYER OPV modules for customers on an industrial scale. The factory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed by experienced technicians who are dedicated to ensuring that each module meets the highest standards of quality and performance. The LAYER Factory division has plans to scale production capacity up to 10 million modules per year by the end of 2023, ensuring that Dracula Technologies can meet the needs of its customers as they grow.
• LAYER Solutions: Solutions to build full products that integrate all components.
The LAYER Solutions division provides manufacturers with turnkey products, offering a range of licensing options to IoT manufacturers and integrators using Dracula Technologies’ OPV LAYER technology. LAYER Solutions helps developers design an autonomous application and assists them in implementing, delivering, and supporting the final product.
Customers can then choose to do their own manufacturing, or they can have it done by other members of the Dracula partner ecosystem
