Disruptive Technologies is the result of a great idea by Erik Fossum Færevaag, the architect behind the world’s lowest power microcontroller. After an initial funding and development phase, Disruptive Technologies premiered its revolutionary sensor solution in 2018 and has already sold over 300,000 sensors and partnered with world leaders in facility management, boosting their abilities to provide environmentally sustainable solutions based on IoT. The sensor solution is set to revolutionize practically all industries including logistics, real estate, health care, warehousing as well as paving the way for Industry 4.0.
A key component of the sensor is an in-house designed application-specific integrated circuit that enables state of the art energy-efficient sensor communication. The system includes an off-the-shelf MEMS and in-house designed sensors. The remarkable form factor has demanded use of chip-scale wafer-level packaging for several of the key components.
