Cymbet Corp. has introduced the application specific solid energy technology (ASSET) thin-film rechargeable batteries that is targeted for integration into IC packages of non-volatile SRAMs, real-time clocks, active RFID tags, and nanotechnology devices, and eliminate the need for bulky battery compartments.

The battery can be a stand-alone power source on a flexible or rigid substrate, or fabricated on the circuit or device that it is intended to power, such as on the lid of an integrated circuit, or on the surface of a PCB.

It has a nominal cell voltage of 3.8V, with capacities ranging from several 5Ah to several mAh, depending on the desired footprint and discharge current requirements. Total cell thickness can be as thin as 255m.

The battery is capable of >10,000 deep charge and discharge cycles, and operate over a temperature range of -400C to 1200C.
