Company

We’ve built a modern 3D silicon lithium-ion battery platform to improve mobile product performance and a new battery business model to create and sustain enterprise value.

PLATFORM

We’ve created a new battery platform with an orthogonal approach to liberate greater innovation in materials, design, production, and packaging.

PERFORMANCE

Our battery increases energy density from 1.5X to 3X for mobile products now, with an additional 16% annual increase for years to come.

PEOPLE & PARTNERS

Our people and partners have a history of increasing enterprise value through innovative products, high-volume production, and global commercialization.

PRODUCTION & IP

We have production facilities in California and the Philippines, and a growing portfolio of patents for 3D silicon lithium-ion battery design and production.

Platform

Our modern battery platform uses an orthogonal approach that enables much greater innovation in design, materials, production, and packaging—now and in the future.

Design

Our patented 3D cell architecture improves spatial efficiency to increase energy density from 1.5X to 3X, depending on cell thickness.

Materials

Our patented, micro-structured porous 100% silicon anode significantly increases energy density versus a conventional graphite anode.

PLATFORM-Image

Production

Photolithography and a low-cost solar-grade silicon wafer process enables affordable, high-volume battery production.

Safety

Our patented 3D cell architecture eliminates the risk of thermal runaway to prevent explosions and fires and improve battery safety.

PRODUCTION

We own and control a pilot-production facility in Fremont, California and a high-volume production plant in Manila, Philippines.

LEADERSHIP TEAM

The members of our leadership team have track records of increasing enterprise value through innovative products, high-volume production, and global commercialization.

HISTORY

We have progressed from inception to production, with a fast-growing portfolio of patents covering multiple aspects of 3D silicon lithium-ion battery design and production.

2007

Enovix co-founded by colleagues with expertise and experience in 3D architecture, materials science, and advanced battery technology.

2008

DCM Ventures, RockPort Capital, Sofinnova Ventures, and Trinity Ventures fund initial proof of concept research on a 3D silicon lithium-ion battery through 2011.

2012

Strategic funding secured and technology partnerships established with Cypress Semiconductor, Intel, and Qualcomm. Development of a low-cost, high-volume production process begins, using the SunPower model for solar panels.

2014

Enovix moves into its 70,000 square-foot headquarters in Fremont, CA, with a wafer fabrication facility, and begins pilot production of 3D silicon lithium-ion batteries for mobile products, with an initial emphasis on wearable devices.

2016

Enovix begins scale-up to high-volume production. Over 55 patent applications submitted and 24 patents awarded since 2012, covering multiple aspects of silicon anode and 3D lithium-ion battery design and production.

STRATEGIC PARTNERS

Our strategic partnerships with domain leaders provide critical capabilities in technology, product design and production, and business operations.

Cypress-Semiconductor-Logo

Cypress Semiconductor (NASDAQ: CY) is a strategic technology partner of Enovix. Its engineers work onsite with us to apply a low cost photovoltaic wafer manufacturing process for high-volume, affordable battery production. SunPower, a former subsidiary of Cypress, initially pioneered the process for the production of solar cells. We are able to leverage substantial investments previously made in supply chains, equipment technology, and process knowledge for our own battery production.

Intel-Logo

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC) is the world’s leading producer of advanced semiconductors and the largest global developer of sophisticated platforms for microelectronic production. Its engineers have worked closely with us to employ a modern hi-tech process for fabricating its 3D silicon lithium-ion battery. These are critical skills that would be extremely difficult for a startup to acquire in a timely manner without a partnership of this magnitude.

Qualcomm-LogoQualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM) is a leader in the design and production of chipsets for global wireless telecommunications and the leading patent holder in advanced 3G mobile technologies, including HSPA. It is also an early pioneer in mobile wearables with its Toq smart watch, released in December 2013 as a concept watch to showcase several of its mobile technologies, which have been incorporated into over a dozen smart watches. Qualcomm provides us with a conduit into the mobile market and intelligence on global standards for mobile chipsets and devices.

EMBEDDED STRATEGIC EXPERTISE

Cypress, Intel, and Qualcomm are domain leaders in advanced solar cells, semiconductors, and mobile technologies, respectively. We are the only startup with engineers from domain experts working together on a full-time basis to bring a new, advanced battery to market.

A MODERN BATTERY PLATFORM

With our partners, we have built a modern photolithography and wafer production platform. This same approach has transformed computers from vacuum tubes to ICs, lighting from incandescent bulbs to LEDs, and television and video displays from CRTs to LCDs.

A BETTER BUSINESS MODEL

Through our partnership with Cypress, we are following a similar business model to that used by SunPower in the solar panel market. It incorporates ownership of intellectual property and direct control of production to create and sustain long-term enterprise value.
