Broadbit battery update: Revolutionary sodium-based green battery technology

Posted by Charbax – July 25, 2018

BroadBit has developed a novel low-cost, high-performance, robust, eco-friendly, scalable sodium chloride (table salt) battery technology. BroadBit is commercializing the technology for applications in electric vehicles, portable electronics and grid stabilization. In addition to sodium chloride, the other key ingredients of the battery are cheap and abundant silicon oxide (sand), carbon (coal) and sulfur (waste product of petrolium refining). BroadBit believes that, with its innovations, it can grow the rechargeable battery market from today's 60B$ to greater than 1T$ in the coming decade.

Compared to Li-ion, BroadBit offers:
- 50% higher energy stored per unit cost
- 25% higher energy per unit weight
- Better environmental friendliness, scalability and sustainability
- Simpler manufacturing than Lithium-ion (fewer steps, no need for inert environment)
- Higher Safety (no flammable electrolyte and reduced risk of shorting)
- Improved robustness:
- can withstand rapid temperature cycling between -20 and +60 C,
- can be repeatedly fully discharged and restarted without damage,
- can be safely overcharged without explosion or damage and
- are non-flamable

CAP-XX develops industry’s first 3 Volt thin prismatic supercapacitors

Posted by Charbax – July 25, 2018

CAP-XX provides peak power support to 3V coin cell batteries and eliminates need for 2.7V LDO regulator for less expensive, smaller, more energy-efficient designs with extended battery life

CAP-XX is a leader in supercapacitors that deliver peak power to support or replace batteries, announced at the IDTechEx Show! Berlin 2018 that it has developed the industry’s first 3V thin, prismatic supercapacitors. The company will deploy its 3V technology first in thin prismatic form to meet demand for small, inexpensive, energy-efficient power solutions for thin wearables, key FOBs and other IoT devices. CAP-XX will then integrate the 3V technology into its larger prismatic supercapacitors, automotive modules and other products for high-energy, high-power applications.

First Graphene flame resistant coating

Posted by Charbax – July 24, 2018

IDTechEx Research Director Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Interviews Dr Andy Goodwin, Advanced Materials Advisor, and Warwick Grigor, Non-Executive Chairman of First Graphene on their fire retardant additive at the IDTechEx Show! Europe 2018.

First Graphene is an advanced materials company seeking to position itself in the lowest cost decile of global graphene suppliers. It has developed an environmentally sound and safe method of converting its supplies of ultra-high grade Sri Lankan graphite into the lowest cost highest quality graphene, in bulk quantities. In so doing it is addressing the three greatest impediments to the commercialisation of graphene, being reliable quality at realistic prices in sufficient volumes to facilitate the development of applications in modern materials, energy storage devices, coatings and polymers. It aims to use these competitive advantages to access new technologies and processes and in turn gain maximum leverage to the entire graphene supply chain, from sourcing the raw material to end use, with development of associated intellectual property for licencing and sales.

BotFactory 3D Printing PCB Boards at Home

Posted by Charbax – July 24, 2018

BotFactory brings the future of electronic circuit fabrication to your desktop with our line of PCB Printers

Just like a 3D Printer, their small circuit printers allows users to prototype in minutes instead of weeks, all at the click of a button. After pulling the Squink or SV2 PCB Printer from the box, users are guided through a seamless process that will take users from a bare substrate to a fully assembled and functional circuit board in a matter of minutes.

Each PCB Printer includes an inkjet printhead that can dispense very fine droplets of conductive ink and insulating ink, allowing users to create multilayered rigid and flexible circuits on FR-4, Kapton or any substrate of your choice.

In addition, each printer has two heads for dispensing glues and solder pastes, and another to pick-and-place components, allowing users to assemble PCBs right at the users desktop.
