Resumen:
Una empresa británica ha desarrollado y obtenido la patente de una batería de estado sólido que utiliza un conductor de iones de cerámica como alternativa a los electrolitos convencionales. Frente a las baterías de litio-ión, esta batería ofrece ventajas en numerosas áreas, como eficiencia energética, carga más rápida y mayor vida útil. La batería se ha diseñado específicamente para aplicaciones de IoT y satisface los cuatro principales requisitos que necesita una batería: miniaturización, capacidad en espacios reducidos, mayor rendimiento y alta capacidad. La empresa busca compañías en los sectores de captura de energía y sensores que dispongan de tecnología de IoT para su integración con las nuevas baterías. El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de comercialización con asistencia técnica o licencia.

Tittle:
UK company is looking to integrate its solid-state battery with Internet of Things applications
Summary:
A UK company has developed a patented solid-state battery technology that uses ceramic ion conductor instead of conventional electrolytes. It has distinct benefits over lithium-ion batteries in number of areas, incl. energy efficiency, faster charge and longer life-span. The company is looking for energy harvesting and sensor companies who have Internet of Things technology to integrate with their new batteries. Commercial agreement with technical assistance or license agreement can be offered.
Description:
The UK company has been a solid-state battery technology innovator since 2008. It has developed a type of lithium-ion battery, which, instead of using the usual liquid or polymer electrolyte, uses a ceramic ion conductor. This is particularly important because battery technology is a key challenge in the electronics space, with the Internet of Things (IoT) being a key driver of growth in the market and battery technology development.

IoT devices offer a different set of battery challenges compared to other electronic devices. They have similar pressures, such as cost and availability, but they also have some specific requirements, such as:
- Small size in both footprint and thickness
- Ability to be trickle charged
- Charged only when an energy harvester can get energy
- Longer life span to match those of sensors and Microcontroller Units (MCU)
- Support wider temperature ranges

These challenges need a different approach to battery technology. In response to that, the company has developed very small footprint, energy dense batteries, with distinct benefits over the conventional lithium-ion batteries. Instead of a liquid or polymer electrolyte, the company´s patented technology uses a ceramic ion conductor. Among the benefits this provides are faster charging and up to 10 years´ life span because of the battery´s very low leakage currents. It is non-flammable and can be integrated into integrated circuit components to reduce end device size. When paired with an energy harvester, the battery can provide a truly fit-for-life performance. It is particularly designed for IoT applications, tackling on the four main battery requirements: miniaturisation, capacity in a small footprint, increased performance and high capacity.

The company is looking to offer commercial agreement with technical assistance or license agreement to partners who have Internet of Things technology to integrate with their new batteries, such as developers of sensor technologies, energy harvesting technologies, wireless chips and other equipment manufacturers in the industrial, electric vehicles and medical sector.
Advantages and Innovations:
The company´s solid state battery technology has several benefits over currently available lithium-ion batteries:

- Up to 10 years´ life span
- Faster to charge
- 40 % improvement in energy density per footprint
- Low leakage currents
- Increased temperature range to 100°C (30°C higher than the existing products)
- Non-flammable
- Can be integrated into integrated circuit (IC) components to reduce end device size
