- The company has also filed patents based on inventions in core battery technology
- It is also preparing additional patent filings in new and adjacent areas to expand the company’s IP portfolio in solid-state lithium batteries (SSLB) design and manufacturing
ThinFilm Electronics ASA, which deals in flexible electronics and roll-based manufacturing has announced that the filing of multiple solid-state lithium battery patent filings. The company said that this will strengthen the company’s strategy to develop and produce a new and innovative class of ultrathin, ultrasafe solid-state lithium batteries (SSLB) for wearable devices, connected sensors.
Kevin Barber, CEO of Thinfilm said, “Thinfilm’s solid-state lithium battery strategy builds upon our company’s established manufacturing expertise to produce a new class of batteries for innovative applications. These filings illustrate Thinfilm’s commitment to innovation throughout the energy storage space, including core battery technology, cell manufacturing, and cell packaging and stacking. Our technical team is well-positioned to continue innovation to enable new classes of wearable devices and connected sensors.”
Ultrathin, stackable milliamp-hour battery cells
These patent filings represent key Thinfilm intellectual property related to the encapsulation, assembly, and stacking of SSLB products based on stainless steel substrates. The company said that its technological advances are needed in the production of ultrathin, stackable milliamp-hour battery cells with the highest volumetric energy density in their class. This enables Thinfilm to minimize battery size and extend battery life for thinner, more comfortable wearable devices and broadly distributed sensors.
The company has also filed patents based on inventions in core battery technology. These include solid-state battery materials and cell stack design. It is also preparing additional patent filings in new and adjacent areas to expand the company’s IP portfolio in SSLB design and manufacturing.
