Ilika plc (LON:IKA) CEO Graeme Purdy talks to DirectorsTalk to discuss an increase in energy density of its Stereax solid state batteries. Graeme explains what is meant by a perpetual power pack, its benefits over current technologies, how they were able to increase the density, wireless edge nodes and commercial deployment.
Ilika plc is a pioneer in solid state battery technology and materials innovation. Ilika’s range of solid state Stereax® batteries includes miniaturised batteries for powering wireless sensors deployed in applications ranging from hostile industrial environments to medical implants. Ilika has also recently extended its roadmap to develop larger format cells suitable for providing automotive power.
Its Stereax® products were developed using Ilika’s unique high throughput materials development platform, which it deploys in collaborations with global OEM’s. The platform enables functional materials to be made, characterised and tested up to 100 times faster than traditional techniques, creating robust datasets to enhance intellectual property value, optimise product performance and reduce time to market.
