CAMPBELL, Calif. & TAIPEI CITY, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Primax Electronics Ltd. developer and manufacturer of advanced Human Machine Interface devices have selected the Atmosic Technologies ATM2 series Bluetooth 5 system-on-chips (SoCs) for their TKB Series product line. These innovative wireless, ultra-low power tablet keyboards pack wireless charging technology into a water/dustproof and chemical resistant design. The fully washable keyboard design allows users to clean them with soapy water or sanitizer to reduce germs and bacteria. Furthermore, the design is eco-friendly with no extra painting or printing process applied.
Atmosic’s solutions leverage the company’s innovative Lowest Power Radio and On-demand Wake Up technologies to provide the lowest possible power consumption for BLE applications. Atmosic’s portfolio also includes the ATM3 series which integrates Controlled Energy Harvesting technology to extend battery life and even enable devices to operate without any batteries, providing a tangible benefit to both the consumer and the environment by reducing the number of batteries that may end up in landfills. Atmosic’s Controlled Energy Harvesting technology can capture energy from a variety of sources, including ambient photovoltaic (light), radio frequency (RF), thermal, and mechanical (motion) sources.
“Atmosic’s extremely low power solutions, combined with its unique energy harvesting technology, will help reduce or eliminate the use of batteries for many of our HID devices,” said Gril Tsai, Sr. Manager of Primax. “This partnership not only enhances our green initiatives but also reduces the cost Primax typically incurs in our bill-of-materials and through the shipping of heavy batteries within our products.”
“By working with electronics manufacturers like Primax, we’re able to help reduce the industry’s reliance on batteries for all sorts of consumer and industrial applications,” said Srinivas Pattamatta, VP of marketing & business development for Atmosic Technologies. “Atmosic’s On-demand Wake Up and Lowest Power Radio technologies deliver unparalleled power consumption in the ATM2 series products. Combined with Controlled Energy Harvesting in our ATM3 series, these technologies will usher in a new generation of HIDs with extended battery life – and in some cases, HIDs that don’t require batteries at all.”
Primax and Atmosic will exhibit examples of advanced keyboard designs for desktop and tablet computers at the upcoming CES 2022 show in Las Vegas, which takes place January 5-9, 2022.
