The World’s smallest power converter technology 

– Come and watch it demonstrated with lighting and IoT-applications 
The TinyPower project team has for the past 3½ years worked on developing the World’s smallest power converters for IoT and lighting. These will be smaller, cheaper to manufacture, and will have a longer lifetime than traditional power supplies. 

The tiny power converters will take their place in intelligent buildings, and installations controlled by smartphones – and will lessen the need for big and bulky power supplies. They can also be used for motion sensors, alarm systems, thermostats, pumps, and other applications where size really matters. The novel power supplies are now ready to be displayed and demonstrated, as part of several different lighting solutions, including ordinary luminaires, Human-Centric Lighting solutions, and sensors. 

We hope you will come and watch the new power converters demonstrated, listen to talks on the development of a power converter made without the classic components – and the continued effort to make power converters even smaller. Meet the experts from all the parties in the TinyPower-consortium, a collaboration between scientists at Denmark’s Technical University and five companies: Niko-Servodan, Nordic Power Converters (NPC), IPU, SimpLight, Noliac and Viso Systems. Innovation Fund Denmark has invested in the project.
