The Power of Nature™

MicroGen Systems, Inc. (MicroGen) – a U.S. Cleantech company – is the global leader in designing and manufacturing nanotechnology/MicroElectroMechanical Systems (NEMS/MEMS) micro-power and micro-sensor products for wireless sensor and mobile electronics applications. Founded in 2007, MicroGen is privately held with corporate headquarters and development facilities in the Ithaca and Rochester, NY areas, and volume manufacturing in Itzehoe, Germany. MicroGen developed its baseline piezoelectric vibrational energy harvester (PZEH) technology at Cornell University within the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility. Now, MicroGen’s PZEH and piezoelectric platform technology for piezoelectric sensor integration is being transferred to X-FAB located in Germany, Malaysia and the USA. X-FAB is world renowned for its microelectronics and MEMS technology foundry production capabilities.

BOLT™ (single-frequency) and VIBE™ (Vibration Induced Broadband Excitation) Micro-Power Generators (MPGs) or power scavenger/energy harvester products provide unprecedented efficiency in micro-power generation from usually wasted ambient vibrational energy. Anything that is desired to be monitored by a wireless sensor for its condition or position can be powered by MicroGen’s MPG products provided there is a vibration source. Our energy-harvesting solutions to create miniature, autonomous, perpetual power supply solutions for wireless sensor and sensor fusion applications. Integrated self-powered sensor fusion technology for mobile communication devices is under development. These applications will be powered from ultra-low level frequency, < 1 Hz to hundreds of Hz of vibration.
