How it Works

"IPS’ innovative THINERGY(tm) micro-energy cells (MECs) are revolutionary solid-state, rechargeable, energy storage solutions that serves a variety of vertical markets. These MECs are ultra-thin, flexible and provide unrivaled rechargeability, cycle life and power performance. Able to operate in temperatures ranging from -40ºC to +85ºC, THINERGY MECs offer extremely low self discharge rates, low cell resistance and high power—making THINERGY MECs the industry leading micro-energy storage offering. Its extremely thin form factor allows for easy integration onto or embedded into PCBs, IC packaging, multi-chip modules (MCMs), Systems in Package (SIP) or even the structural material associated with the application itself. Moreover, IPS MECs are ideally suited for use with all forms of ambient energy harvesting techniques for recharging—such as solar, thermal, RF, magnetic and vibration energy—delivering a safe, reusable and clean power source for today’s electronic devices and systems."

Applications

Infinite Power Solutions is supplying a postage stamp sized energy storage device to makers of thin-film and Organic PhotoVoltaic cell arrays, with efficient acceptance and storage of PV generated currents even down to room lighting levels.

Perfectly suited for harvesting of RF, Heat, Light, or Kinetic Energy, in any combination, the cell essentially lasts forever.

The cell is packaged to be compatible with any attachment or lamination process, and permanently embedded into any autonomous managed energy platform.

"IPS’ innovative THINERGY (tm) MECs deliver a superior energy storage solution to a number of markets producing microelectronic devices through its revolutionary thinness, superior pulse power, and temperature and cycle life—along with its economically smart and safe technology. These MECs are flexible solid-state lithium batteries with unrivaled rechargeability and power performance. Able to operate in temperatures ranging from -40ºC to +85ºC, THINERGY MECs offer extremely low leakage, low cell resistance and high power—making THINERGY a unique micro-energy storage offering. Its extremely thin form factor allows for easy integration onto PCBs, IC packaging, multi-chip modules (MCMs), or even the structural material associated with the application itself. Moreover, IPS’ MECs allow the use of ambient energy harvesting techniques for recharging through solar, thermal, magnetic and vibration energy—delivering a safe, reusable and clean power source for today’s electronic devices."
"The company’s MECs are superior in their charge acceptance and ability to efficiently store energy harvested from ambient environments such as radio frequency, magnetic, solar, heat, and vibration. System designers utilizing our new THINERGY Applications Development Platform (ADP) will be able to evaluate both the performance of our revolutionary micro-energy cells (MECs) along with a variety of third-party ambient energy harvesting systems. The ADP also allows the user to connect various energy harvesting circuits to efficiently “trickle charge” or fully recharge our micro- energy cells in just a few minutes enabling rapid prototyping and emulation of their entire microelectronic system/application."

Patents

  • Infinite Power raises $13M to ramp thin-film batteries - IPS licensed thin-film battery patents from Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2001, supplementing that expertise with proprietary production processes, tooling and device modifications. One of the co-inventors of the thin-film battery, Bernd Neudecker, is IPS's chief technology officer. (CleanTech; Dec. 3, 2008)

"Many people have tried a lot of things and, when they get into it, they are always surprised how difficult it is to make a flat battery," Bernd Neudecker said. "It reads so easy in all the patents, but keep in mind that most of the good stuff isn't written in patents; they are trade secrets." (Greentech Media; Oct, 22, 2007)

Coverage

In the News

  • A Battery for Perpetual Motion - The company's thin-film batteries are largely devised to store and provide power for things like temperature sensors, small cameras and other devices that won't be connected to the grid or wires. They will harvest their own power from nearby solar panels, vibrations or complex sheets of materials that can convert differences in ambient temperature into electricity.
