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, 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

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

This is the third 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 and illustrates how thermal runaway can occur in a conventional Li-ion battery. The polymer separator is an inactive material and has to be physically longer and wider than the electrodes to make sure

This is the second in a series of posts from the article, “How to Build a Safer, More Energy-Dense Lithium-ion Battery” authored by Ashok Lahiri, Nirav Shah, and Cam Dales of Enovix. Following is an excerpt from the article regarding how our 3D cell architecture enables us to incorporate a 100% silicon anode. Our flat-cell architecture can take full advantage of a number of advances in electrode chemistry. To understand

IEEE Spectrum recently published an article, “How to Build a Safer, More Energy-Dense Lithium-ion Battery,” authored by Ashok Lahiri, Nirav Shah, and Cam Dales of Enovix. It describes how our patented 3D cell architecture and silicon wafer production produces a lithium-ion battery with increased energy density and improved safety. I’ll be serializing key parts of the article over the next few posts. Following is the first excerpt from the IEEE

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory has named Venkat Srinivasan the next director of the Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS). ACCESS is a collaborative of scientists and engineers from across Argonne that helps public and private-sector customers create energy storage solutions through multidisciplinary research. Venkat holds a special place at Enovix. He was a technical advisor to the Enovix co-founders at the inception of the

The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) traces its heritage to 1871. Today its mission is to, “inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community, supporting technology innovation to meet the needs of society.” E&T (Engineering and Technology) is the IET’s award-winning monthly magazine and associated website for professional engineers. E&T recently published an article by Holly Cave titled, “Charging ahead: the bid for better EV batteries.” The article’s premise
