ITEN is the leading industrial company developing and manufacturing solid-state lithium-ion micro-batteries in the form of SMD components. Such micro-batteries are rechargeable in a few minutes and are not only able to store high energy density but also to deliver power and high peak currents (a few 100 mA) over a wide operating temperature range. ITEN’s micro-batteries are the ideal solutions to back-up and power up applications in electronics, SSDs, mobile and GPS devices, SSDs, medical devices, smart cards and security tokens, home and building automation, smart cities, wearables and e-textile, IoT and more generally wireless sensor networks.
