Enfucell Printed Battery Powering Golf Sensor, Temperature Sensors and More

Posted by – May 11, 2015

Enfucell is a customized battery supplier to the printed electronics industry. The company has developed SoftBattery®, a thin, flexible and eco-friendly printed power source and at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe event in Berlin it showcased a range of products based on this battery. It includes a powered wireless golf sensor patch which was developed in a joint project with Qualcomm. The patch is attached to a golf club head for measuring acceleration and angular velocity. The acquired data is transferred via low energy Bluetooth (BLE) to an application on a mobile device. Enfucell battery powers the BLE data transmission without additional capacitor demonstrating the highest peak power capability in the industry. Battery is also fully integrated to the system.

The disposable patch is helping golf players to improve their swing. This is the first time that a player can actually get feedback from the club head. A fully integrated printed battery enables thin and light construction which does not interfere with the normal stroke. Thanks to the BLE communication, data can be analyzed on site on the driving range during a training session. The data is collected to and processed on an Android tablet.

A similar patch can be tailored for other racquet sports, shooting, bowling, etc. Enfucell is looking for partners for commercializing the product. The new product platform completes Enfucell application range with previously introduced temperature logger (collaboration with NXP) and iontophoresis patch (collaboration with The Ionto Team, Spain). Also these products have fully integrated Enfucell battery technology. All of these are shown in the video. To learn more see http://www.PrintedElectronicsWorld.com

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet

Posted by – March 6, 2015

Runs Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64bit ARM Cortex-A57/53 with the Adreno 430 GPU, with LTE support on a 10.1” 2K display, 3GB RAM, it's thinner and lighter than Sony has ever done a tablet, packs a 6000 mAh battery for up to 17 hours of Video playback. It also has a nice bluetooth Keyboard Dock option that fits well with it and folds into a laptop mode. I just wish Sony would sell it closer to sub-$300 with LTE and the Keyboard Dock than at probably $600+.
