Company Profile (Arveni)

Arveni logo
Arveni delivers high performance solutions of piezo-mechanical energy harvesting.
For home automation, we work for Philips, Somfy... on batteryless wireless remotes. For industrial applications we work for French Railway Authority, Vossloh, Eryma... on wireless sensor network.
Since incorporation in 2007, Arveni achievements are significant: in pulse/push-button harvesting: highest yield of conversion; in vibration: on railway track harvested power greater by *50 vs state of the art. This higher level of energy enables our customer to keep their legacy radio protocol, choose highly reliable protocols (tx/Rx), and implement economic electronics and radio.
Arveni was awarded in California ('Silicon 60' listed by EETimes) Chicago ('Best of Sensor' in bronze) and 'Special prize of the Jury' in the German French contest for embedded electronic (Paris 2010) and last but not least 'Best Innovator Supplier' by our customer RFF in 2012.
For past customer projects, we also developed a specific know-how on ultra low power radio & electronic (ULP). So Arveni can fully support our customers in their projects of switching from their current wired or battery powered applications, to batteryless wireless interoperable sensor.
