The Applications Of Solid-State Thin Film Battery In Miniature Electronic Devices (Energy Storage Innovations USA 2016)

Dr Simon Nieh, CEO
Front Edge Technology
United States

Presentation Summary

A new generation of Internet of Things, wearables, and implantable medical devices have been developed. Solid-state thin film battery (TFB) is uniquely suitable for these new miniature devices. In this presentation, I will use a few examples to illustrate how TFBs enable the design of next-generation products.
