– Matrix has developed single-cell Solar Booster standard modules, to be coupled with Powerfoyle solar cells.
– The coupled technologies enable customers to create low-power energy solutions with prolonged or even infinite battery life.
– The partnership is an ideal choice for a wide range of industrial applications for agriculture, manufacturing, building systems, consumer electronics and home automation products.
OCTOBER 2, 2023 – STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN & MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA – Exeger, the Swedish deep-tech company behind the revolutionary solar cell technology Powerfoyle™, today announces its partnership with Matrix Industries (www.matrixindustries.com) to provide high efficiency low-power solutions to a wide range of technology manufacturers.
Matrix Industries, based in Menlo Park, California, is a pioneer in development of energy harvesting solutions for connected devices. Each of Matrix’s products includes advanced low-power machine learning algorithms and unique energy harvesting technology. Exeger manufactures a patented photovoltaic solar cell, Powerfoyle. The cells can be produced in any shape and size, and can convert all forms of light, both artificial indoor and natural outdoor, into clean, endless energy.
Matrix has developed Single-cell Solar Booster standard (SSB) modules and also a high power variant (SSBH) specially tailored for single cell photovoltaics like Powerfoyle. Matrix SSB coupled with Powerfoyle Indoor cells (optimized for indoor applications) and Matrix SSBH coupled with Powerfoyle Hybrid (designed for a combination of outdoor and indoor light sources) enable customers to create energy harvesting solutions with significant longer battery life – or even completely battery free – which streamlines maintenance operations and reduces maintenance costs.
The synergy between Matrix’s high-performance boost converter modules and Powerfoyle’s energy-harvesting technology makes this partnership an ideal choice for a wide range of industrial applications for agriculture, manufacturing and building systems (including heating, cooling and lighting), along with consumer devices such as wearables and home automation products.
“Joining forces with Matrix Industries provides yet another option for our customers to choose from when it comes to boost converters,” says Oscar Hemberg, Chief Product Integration Officer at Exeger. ”Through the combination of both Matrix’s technology and our revolutionizing solar cell, we can help our customers on their journey by offering a complete energy harvesting solution and reduce the need for costly battery replacement and maintenance of IoT deployments.”

“Powerfoyle’s innovative solar cells are an especially appealing solution for wearable and IoT devices that need to incorporate efficient photovoltaic energy harvesting with none of the downsides of traditional solar cells such as visible bus bars or unnatural appearance,” says Douglas Tham, Chief Technology Officer at Matrix. “Our lineup of Single Solar Booster modules is a perfect match for Exeger’s solar cells and enables product designers to integrate Powerfoyle into products easily and at minimal added cost.”
Exeger is a Swedish company with a unique solar cell technology that converts all forms of light into electrical energy. This material, Powerfoyle, is the world’s only fully customizable solar cell. With its superior design properties, it can be integrated seamlessly into any electronic device.
Powerfoyle enhances every product it is integrated into with extended or even unlimited battery life, putting the power of cutting-edge solar cell technology directly in the hands of people. Exeger is leading the way to energy independence through more sustainable and user-friendly products – with the vision to touch the lives of a billion people by 2030.
