In the electronics’ industry, the year starts with CES. The event premiers its share of questionable, even amusing, products: Just how many of us will have a Charmin Rollbot in our home next year? But it also features technologies that will have a profound effect on our mobile future. We are especially interested in technologies to which our own advancements in silicon-based battery technology will contribute. Here is the first

On Monday, September 23, I attended K-Global 2019 @ Silicon Valley, which showcases Korea’s information and communications technology (ICT) and software (SW) technologies. The theme of this year’s conference was “Future is on 5G,” which was a primary reason I attended. At Enovix, we’ve been investigating how the evolution from 4G to 5G will affect battery performance in mobile devices with cellular connections. For example, we know that the Sub-6

Ashok Lahiri, Enovix co-founder and CTO, authored an article, “A New and Innovative 3D Architecture for Lithium Batteries”, that appears in the latest issue of Applied Wireless Technology (you can read the complete article beginning on page 12 of the issue). Following is an excerpt from the article, and I’ll post a few more over the coming weeks. A modern compact, mobile device, such as the smartphone shown below, is only

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

I’ve written several posts over the past two months about the Galaxy Note 7 battery fires that led Samsung to remove it from the market. In my prior post, I reported, from a Wall Street Journal article, that “investors have shaved off roughly $20 billion in Samsung’s market value. The company has said the recall would cost it $5 billion or more, including lost sales.” The big question now is
