ITEN is certified Ecovadis 2018 which awards eco-design approaches and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The Silver badge and certificate recognizes the good CSR performance and brings the credibility of a robust globally- recognized methodology.
For example, all our micro-batteries are rechargeable; they have been designed to meet
lifespan from 10 to 20 years and to withstand more than 1000 cycles of charge/discharge
at 100% depth of discharge which is much more than other lithium-ion batteries ->it
maximizes the life expectancy of the micro-battery and minimizes waste.
All our manufacturing processes consume less energy and maximize the material use: no use of any lengthy and high-power consuming vacuum deposition techniques for the thin film deposition, and almost no loss of material (almost 100% of the material used in the process is actually included in the product).
In addition, ITEN products target key applications like smart cities, smart building and home automation where the goal is to cut power consumption, maximize energetic efficiency and minimize the carbon footprint.
Last but not least: All our micro-batteries are lead-free and are also ROHS compliant. Since our micro-batteries are delivered in the form of a surface mount component (SMD) and since they do use neither toxic materials nor flammable materials, they are thus easily recycled like any other SMD component of the electronics industry.
ITEN technology and products are developed to serve various demanding applications and to
meet their specific use case requirements.
This is why the starting point of all our developments is a deep review of the customer specifications and a good understanding of how the products will be effectively used in the application. This defines a mission profile (covering shipment, integration and use cases) including key performance characteristics (like micro-battery capacity, continuous and pulse currents, number of charge/discharge cycles) and key reliability parameters (like electrical, thermal, mechanical and other environmental stresses).
As an ISO 9001-certified company, the quality of the products is ensured
On request, some additional reliability screening tests can be performed on each device to guarantee some specific mission profiles. All products from ITEN are compliant with the following norms applicable for micro-battery use or transportation:
Full IEC 62133 and/or UL1642 Certifications of specific products by international third-party laboratories can be proposed by ITEN on request.
