About Enovix

Enovix is building a next-generation lithium-ion battery to increase energy density and improve safety. Our patented 3D cell architecture enables a high-capacity silicon anode to increase energy density by 30% to 80%, depending on cell size. And our patented 3D cell architecture includes features that reduce the danger of explosion and fire from thermal runaway. We’re backed by strategic relationships with Intel, Qualcomm, and Cypress and over $150 million in venture, strategic, and private funding. We’ve been awarded over 50 patents and have over 50 more pending that will create sustainable enterprise value and provide a competitive barrier for years to come.

About Enovix

Enovix has built a next-generation lithium-ion battery that significantly increases energy density and maintains high cycle life. Our patented 3D cell architecture enables a high-capacity silicon anode to increase energy density by 40% to over 100%, depending on cell size. And it keeps the anode stack under high pressure to prevent silicon particle pulverization for full depth-of-charge cycle life over 600. We’re backed by strategic relationships with Intel, Qualcomm, and Cypress and over $150 million in venture, strategic, and private funding. We’ve been awarded over 70 patents and have over 40 more pending that will create sustainable enterprise value and provide a competitive barrier for years.
