On track for commercialisation

It took Yazami five years to develop the smart chip, which is now marketed by his start-up, KVI Pte Ltd. Working together with Yamami on developing the smart chip platform at ERI@N is research scientist Sohaib El Outmani.

KVI is now being incubated by NTU's commercialisation arm, NTUitive. KVI is developing this chip into a series of products, which include battery packs for recharging mobile devices, charge gauge for electric vehicles and a smart chip for every battery.

The start-up company has an exclusive licence on Yazami's ETM technology, which is based on his research done in NTU Singapore, California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS).

His research incorporates two other unique factors: entropy, a measure of disorder or randomness of a system, and enthalpy, which is the sum of internal energy of a system.

It is expected that the technology will be made available for licensing by chipmakers and battery manufacturers before the end of 2016.
