Three complementary technologies are ideal for self-powered smart devices
- TAeTTOOz® printed battery from Evonik to be combined with solar cells from Epishine and electrochromic display from Ynvisible
- Applications include self-powered signage, functional packaging or device solutions.
- All technologies can be printed
The Evonik specialty chemicals group, Ynvisible Interactive Inc. of Canada and Epishine AB announce the creation of a new joint demonstrator featuring TAeTTOOz® printed battery from Evonik, Epishine's solar cells, and Ynvisible's electrochromic display.
All technologies can be printed, and when they are assembled, they can create self-powered signage, functional packaging or device solutions. The joint demonstrator will be featured at LOPEC, TechBlick and on the partner's individual communications channels.
"Our new demonstrator is a clear evolution on our journey with Ynvisible, started in May 2020. We are demonstrating the potential use-cases and advantages of this combined solution – energy independence, scale-able manufacturing and design freedom," says Dr. Michael Korell, Head of New Growth Area Energy Storage, Evonik.
"Epishine's light energy harvesting cells have unique efficiency at indoor light conditions and enable small connected electronics, like electronic shelf labels, without the burden of costly battery maintenance. This collaboration is also an important opportunity to highlight the unique material properties of our thin and flexible printed solar cell," says Jesper Nilsson, Head of Solutions, Epishine.
"Most active electronic devices need a visual interface and a power supply. Our joint demonstrator makes rechargeability, modularity and a dynamic user experience reality," says Michael Robinson, CEO of Ynvisible. "We're proud to showcase how our partners' technologies can come together to deliver holistic and value-added solutions – truly a Display PLUS."
Ynvisible, Evonik, and Epishine will host a joint interactive webinar on Apr 8, 2021 04:00 PM CET to delve deeper into the details of the Self-Powered Smart Signage Solution and provide a broader idea on what the three technologies will enable.
