New Environmentally Friendly Thin-Film Batteries Provide "Green" Performance

January 29, 2008

Elk River, Minn. – January 29, 2008 – Cymbet Corporation said today that its new EnerChip™ family of thin-film battery devices offers something truly unique in battery technology: environmentally friendly, "green" performance. EnerChips, launched in September 2007 and now commercially available worldwide, are designed for semiconductor, medical, sensor, RFID, communications and portable electronic devices.

Environmental friendliness is a key EnerChip attribute, since the product is designed to eliminate battery replacement and last the life of the device it powers. As a solid-state device, the EnerChip is lead-free and contains no hazardous materials, flammable solvents or liquids that can harm the user or the environment, therefore eliminating or reducing some end-of-life product costs.

Said Cymbet CEO Bill Priesmeyer, "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."

The EnerChip's small form factor and highly rechargeable, solid-state, thin-film advancements can be economically and reliably integrated as an embedded device or as a surface-mounted component. Cymbet's EnerChip family is well suited for 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.

All EnerChip products can be lead-free reflow soldered (260 Degrees C) using automated high-speed assembly processes, significantly reducing assembly cost. The devices offer a fast recharge time (under 30 minutes to 80 percent), are capable of greater than 5,000 charge/discharge cycles and do not suffer from the self-discharge limitations associated with super capacitors or shelf-life limitations common to chemical batteries. Currently, product is available in capacities of 12, 50 and 85uAh.
