Alpha Micro M2M and telematics experts help electronic engineers resolve design issues at RF Fortronic

(Cision (English) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Electronics engineers keen to discuss how telematics and Machine-to -Machine (M2M) technology can be seamlessly integrated into their designs are cordially invited to join Alpha Micro, the designed-based distributor of electronic components, at the Fortronic RF and Wireless Design Forum on Tuesday 26th June at the Williams Formula 1 Conference Centre, Station Road, Grove, Oxfordshire, OX12 0DQ. This one day technical forum is free to attend for pre-registered engineers.

Visitors will be provided with the opportunity to attend a range of presentations spanning energy- harvesting technology to dynamic characterisation software, and to find out more about Alpha Micro’s u -blox 3G, 2G and GPS development kits.  Also featured will be Alpha Micro’s Gainspan low power Wi-Fi options and Micro Energy Cell battery (MEC) technology from Infinite Power Solutions.

Successful independent specialist franchised distributor of components for telematics and M2M, Alpha Micro is one of the companies pioneering the concept of “design based” distribution, using its in-house software and hardware capabilities as a platform to sell its franchised components. Alpha Micro’s design group offers a comprehensive technical support package ranging from application support, through to complete turnkey designs. The company services the machine to machine (M2M), telematics, medical, energy monitoring, security and automotive sectors with components from world leading manufacturers.  Experts will be on hand to help visiting engineers resolve design issues.


Alpha Micro will be joined by John Corbett, Director of partner company, EnOcean, who will be presenting a morning plenary at 10am entitled The use of Wireless Energy harvesting sensing and control in M2M applications (please see more detail below). Other major players presenting short 20 minute technical presentations include Agilent, Atmel and Reading University.  Afternoon workshops will include presentations from Texas Instruments and Laird Technologies to name but a few.

The concept of harvesting ambient energy from the immediate environment is not new; wind and water have been such sources for hundreds of years. In contrast the concept of making a wireless, batteryless solution has only recently been achievable due to recent advances in energy efficient electronics.

 Using Energy Harvesting devices as end nodes is ideal for a number of M2M wireless network applications where, typically, there is an ‘always on’ device being used such as a GPRS or internet gateway.

M2M wireless networks benefit from energy harvesting technology as it eliminates the need for battery replacement, making them ideal in hostile or inaccessible areas. They give a step change in longevity and are also environmentally friendly. This presentation overviews the advances in EnOcean’s wireless modules technology and how it fits with today’s GPRS gateway technology. It also introduces a new standard – ISO/IEC 14543-3-10 – for wireless applications with ultra-low power consumption. It is the first and only wireless standard that is also optimized for energy harvesting solutions and, therefore, for EnOcean's self-powered wireless technology.
