About Us

Everactive technology unlocks an age of self-powered computing that brings intelligence to our physical world.

Our Story

Everactive is a deep technology company whose origins stretch back over a decade to the pioneering ultra-low-power circuit research of our co-founders at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Upon receiving their doctorates, each took teaching positions at their respective alma maters—the University of Virginia and the University of Michigan.  After several years of incubation and several groundbreaking proof points, the technology was licensed out of those two universities; Everactive was born.

 

The core circuit design and wireless communication IP has served as the building block for Everactive’s self-powered, batteryless systems.  The company has since added all of the requisite pieces—cloud software, data analytics, systems expertise, and industrial design—to develop a complete end-to-end sensing solution.  Now, with the technology fully commercialized, Everactive continues to innovate with a suite of industrial sensing products focused on delivering critical insights that are simply not possible with battery-powered devices.

Our Vision

To improve the quality & efficiency
of peoples’ lives by enabling the
next computing revolution.

Technology Milestones

Redefining the Radio

2013

With a sub-threshold digital baseband for addressing interference rejection, the world’s first sub-micro Watt always-on wakeup receiver fundamentally changes the approach to designing a wireless network.

Revolutionizing Power Management

2014

Able to operate continuously from only a few degrees Celsius across a thermoelectric generator, Everactive’s first energy harvesting power management unit recorded the lowest startup and operating voltages and demonstrated the ability to power devices entirely from low levels of harvested energy.

Inventing Batteryless IoT

2015

Integrating sensing, processing, memory, radios, energy harvesting-power management, Everactive created a fully integrated wireless system-on-chip that consumed a mere 6.5 µW of average active power while operating a physiological wearable device.  That was orders of magnitude lower than what “low power” devices had achieved to date!

Engineering Self-Powered Devices

2016

IP related to several core circuit block radio, power management, and design were the foundation to assemble small form-factor and flexible packaged devices to be deployed in rugged industrial applications.  With the ability to harvest energy from multiple sources and sense an array of inputs, our Eversensor was built for hazardous locations and harsh environments to collect data where others can’t.

Building the End-to-End Solution

2017

Because we’re able to collect data that others can’t, we require expertise in networking, software analytics, and data science to help make sense of sensed data. We continue to add world-class talent in these fields so that we can seamlessly deliver insights across a range of assets and within a range of environments.

Steam Trap Monitoring

2018

Everactive released a completely self-powered steam trap monitor that provides real-time insights via a proprietary algorithm, offering a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution that can save an array of industries tens of billions of dollars and dramatically reduce wasted energy and carbon emissions.
