Cymbet Corporation announced today that its newest EnerChip family of thin-film battery devices not only eliminate battery replacement, but also offer environmentally-friendly, "green" performance.
Launched in September 2007, the EnerChips are a small form factor, highly rechargeable device that distributes energy and are commercially available worldwide, They are designed for semiconductor, medical, sensor, RFID, communications and portable electronic devices.
The "green" performance the batteries offer is extended to the source it is powering and helps to further the efficiency thin-film batteries offer including eliminating battery replacement. The thin-film batteries are also lead-free and contain no hazardous materials that could harm the user or the environment.
According to a news release, Cymbet's EnerChip family is targeted at "applications where back-up power is needed to maintain the settings of microcontroller memories, real-time-clocks and SRAM during power loss or power failures."
"When coupled with energy-harvesting or energy-scavenging techniques, an EnerChip can supply the energy storage to build self-contained, long-lived powered systems and avoid the use of traditional battery power approaches. Using an EnerChip battery to power sensors, RFID tags or other remote devices--in combination with energy already available in the environment--is both cost and environmentally beneficial," explained Cymbet CEO Bill Priesmeyer in a statement to the press.
