Santa Clara, CA, September 19, 2015 — Whizz Systems Inc., in partnership with Cypress Semiconductor and Place Global, is proud to unveil Helio, the world’s first solar powered beacon. The Solar Beacon is using state of the art energy harvesting ICs, and an ultralow power PSOC module from Cypress.

The Solar Beacon comes loaded with a best in class beacon management system and mobile application from Place Global. Those two pieces combined with Whizz RF engineering, ME and systems integration expertise created the Helio. It can be powered purely by ambient light of just 200 LUX, enabling a tremendous range of applications, while lowering deployment and maintenance costs significantly.
