It has developed solid-state battery technology to meet the demands of the Internet of Things (IoT). The Company has materials development programs addressing a range of applications, including the solid-state battery, aerospace alloys and electronic materials. It has developed a type of lithium-ion battery, which, instead of using the usual liquid or polymer electrolyte, uses a ceramic ion conductor.
It offers Stereax M250 rechargeable, thin film battery. It has applications in autonomous sensor devices, smart homes (heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), security, light), automotive (infotainment, sensors), logistics (asset tracking), medical devices (biometric monitoring) and wearables.
