This is the second of a multipart series that recaps a technical presentation by Murali Ramasubramanian, Enovix co-founder and vice president of research and development, at the International Battery Seminar & Exhibit. The first part of the series illustrated that our Enovix 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion Cells with a typical core energy density of 960 Wh/l have achieved median cycle life of about 600 to 20% fade (80% capacity). Before describing



A few weeks ago, Murali Ramasubramanian, Enovix co-founder and vice president of research and development, delivered the first public technical presentation of our 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion Battery at the 2019 International Battery Seminar & Exhibit. Since then, we’ve had requests for copies of the presentation. While I can’t send everyone a copy, I can provide you with an overview of the presentation. In the news release announcing the presentation, Murali



PRESS RELEASE March 20, 2019 – Enovix will deliver the first public technical presentation of its 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion Battery at the 2019 International Battery Seminar & Exhibit in Fort Lauderdale, Florida next week. Murali Ramasubramanian, PhD, Enovix co-founder and vice president of research and development, will deliver the presentation on Thursday, March 28, 2019, from 2:25 to 2:55 pm EDT, at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center during the Innovation



PRESS RELEASE February 13, 2019 – Survey after survey has revealed that the number one consumer wish for their smartphone and other mobile devices is better battery life. Enovix is on track to fulfill that wish by early 2020 with a smartphone-size battery that incorporates a high-capacity silicon anode to deliver over 900 Wh/l energy density with over 500 cycle life. The company is currently sampling its prototype 3D cells



Christopher Mims writes the weekly KEYWORDS technology column for The Wall Street Journal. Last week he interviewed our CEO, Harrold Rust, for his latest column, The Battery Boost We’ve Been Waiting for Is Only a Few Years Out (you may need a WSJ subscription to access the full article). The column opens with the following. The batteries that power our modern world—from phone batteries to rv batteries to electric car



In the last post, The Technology Path to Modern Mobile Devices, I published the first excerpt from an article “A New and Innovative 3D Architecture for Lithium Batteries.” Ashok Lahiri, Enovix co-founder and CTO, authored the article that appears in the latest issue of Applied Wireless Technology. Following is the second excerpt. Physics and Chemistry Mobile device technology and conventional Li-ion battery technology are rooted in two different fields of



As an innovator in advanced lithium-ion battery technology, Enovix follows the work of others in the field closely. Researchers have long tried to develop safe, high-energy batteries using lithium (Li) metal as the active anode material. A July 12, 2017 article by David L. Chandler in MIT News, “Study suggests route to improving rechargeable lithium batteries,” reports on a study that indicates smooth surfaces may prevent harmful deposits from working



Just over a year ago, I wrote a blog post titled THE APPLE WATCH: A Roadblock to Its Future. It referenced an article from Bloomberg Technology that began, “Apple Inc. has hit roadblocks in making major changes that would connect its Watch to cellular networks and make it less dependent on the iPhone.” The article concluded that, “The source of the delay is that current cellular chips consume too much



Power Electronics is a Penton publication. Its expert editors report on the engineering, design and integration of power electronic system applications, such as battery-powered systems, consumer, commercial and industrial power electronic systems; and power systems for electric and automotive transportation. In an August 2, 2017 article, Sam Davis, editor-in-chief, writes that, “Large-scale adoption of wearable devices will depend on availability of two important technologies: improved batteries and higher density transistor



This is the second in a series of posts from the article, “How to Build a Safer, More Energy-Dense Lithium-ion Battery” authored by Ashok Lahiri, Nirav Shah, and Cam Dales of Enovix. Following is an excerpt from the article regarding how our 3D cell architecture enables us to incorporate a 100% silicon anode. Our flat-cell architecture can take full advantage of a number of advances in electrode chemistry. To understand
