Miniaturizing Batteries For Next Generation Implantable Medical Devices (Healthcare Sensor Innovations USA 2020)

Dr Denis Pasero, Product Commercialisation Manager
Ilika Technologies Ltd
United Kingdom

Presentation Summary

The next generation of medical sensing devices will be placed directly on nerves, in the heart or lungs, or on contact lenses! There is now a requirement for miniaturizing the electronic components in these ever-shrinking devices, whilst at the same time increasing their functionality and connectivity. This puts pressure on the batteries powering the device with a need for high energy density in mm3-scale volumes. Ilika has designed a range miniature and ultra-thin solid state batteries for these applications.
