As part of an initiative to broaden its product portfolio and leverage the unique attributes of the EnerChip™ solid state rechargeable micro-battery, Cymbet Corporation is introducing an integrated circuit combining an ultra-low power Real-Time Clock (RTC) with power management functions that support power switching and battery management.
The Power Management with RTC (PMRTC) product family supports charging voltage options for a variety of backup power sources – EnerChips™, rechargeable coin cells, and supercapacitors. The PMRTC claims best-in-class operating current, on-chip temperature sensor, and I2C and SPI interface bus options.
PMRTC products will serve applications in low power sensors, consumer products, portable medical devices, and industrial systems. Sampling will begin in the 2nd quarter of 2018, with a derivative product family containing an integrated EnerChip™ to follow in late 2018.
Cymbet Corporation also announced that it has begun shipping its EnerChip™ batteries from the high volume production foundry at X-Fab, Texas. This comes as a result of significant investment in developing a production manufacturing process for its solid state micro-batteries. EnerChips™ are produced on silicon wafers using patented and proprietary methods and processes in a wafer fab environment.
EnerChips™ are available in wafer and bare die form, in addition to surface mount packages.
In related industry news: Jeff Sather, VP Technology and Solutions at Cymbet, will be speaking at the pre-conference symposium at Sensors Expo & Conference in San Jose, CA, on Tuesday, June 26. His presentation will focus on energy storage devices for miniature sensing applications which Cymbet is uniquely suited to address.
Cymbet will have a booth in the Expo Hall, where attendees are invited to stop by to discuss how they can use Cymbet’s products in their designs.
