The 2018 Intel Capital Global Summit will be held at the JW Marriott in Palm Desert, California from May 8 – 10, 2018. Harrold Rust, Enovix CEO, will present a short update on our Enovix 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion Battery between 3:15 pm and 4:45 pm, on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, in the Desert Ballroom, Salon Rooms. The update comes shortly after Harrold was featured in a KEYWORDS technology column for

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 phones to drones to electric cars—will soon experience

In the last post, A New, Modern Li-ion Battery Platform, I published the third 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 fourth excerpt that describes the unique construction of our 3D silicon lithium-ion battery. Photolithography and Wafer Production The Enovix battery manufacturing

In the last post, Physics and Chemistry, I published the second 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 third excerpt. A New, Modern Li-ion Battery Platform In 2007, three cofounders and I started Enovix Corporation, initially under the operating name microAzure. Two

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

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

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

This is the fourth (and final) in a series of posts from the IEEE Spectrum article, “How to Build a Safer, More Energy-Dense Lithium-ion Battery,” authored by Ashok Lahiri, Nirav Shah, and Cam Dales of Enovix. The article describes how we use photolithography and wafer processing techniques to fabricate our 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion battery. To fabricate the Enovix battery, we begin with a wafer of silicon that’s 1 millimeter thick. This doesn’t

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
