MicroGen systems, Inc. is developing a suite of products based on its proprietary piezoelectric vibrational energy harvester (PZEH) technology. These low cost, long lifetime (>20 years) Micro-ElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) are micro-power sources that extend rechargeable battery lifetime or will eliminate the need for batteries altogether.
MicroGen is located in Ithaca, NY and Rochester NY, with manufacturing at XFAB Semiconductor Corporation in Izahoe, Germany. A spinout of the University of Vermont, MicroGen is led by a strong international management team with industry and start up experience.
