Future to Sell Cymbet Solid-State Batteries

26 March 2014

Distributor Future Electronics will carry Cymbet Corporation's solid-state batteries in North and South America under a new distribution agreement, the companies announced.

Future, based in Montréal, will carry Cymbet's entire family of EnerChip smart solid-state batteries and power management solutions in the Americas.

EnerChip rechargeable batteries are made using semiconductor processes and are sold in standard plastic IC packages and as bare die batteries. The batteries have a footprint as small as the CBC005 bare die that is 1.37mm x 0.85mm x 175 microns thick. Packaged EnerChip batteries with integrated power management range from 4 x 5 x 0.9mm to 9 x 9 x 0.9mm depending on battery capacity size.

EnerChips enable new innovative products that previously could not be realized using coin cell batteries or super capacitors, according to Cymbet.

Future is an "ideal partner for Cymbet" as the distributor has long-term relationships with electronics companies around the world, said Blair Wilson, Cymbet vice president of sales.

"Future has a unique focus on green technology and energy harvesting with its Future Energy Solutions team. Cymbet's solid-state batteries, power management devices and energy harvesting solutions are an excellent fit," said Wilson

Richard Ankcorn, director of Future Energy Solutions, said its customers will be able to "accelerate new product innovation by using Cymbet's batteries and ultra-low power management solutions."

Cymbet has also signed a distribution agreement with Hakuto Co., based in Tokyo. Hakuto will distribute Cymbet's solid-state batteries in Japan. Cymbet is headquartered in Elk River, Minn.
