Integrated Power Source

Reference#: P01274


A self-contained, small, lightweight, portable, renewable, modular integrated power source. The power source consists of solar cells that are laminated onto a solid-state polymer battery, which in turn is laminated onto a substrate containing circuits that manage the polymer battery charging. Charging of the battery can occur via solar energy or, alternatively, via RF coupling using external RF-charging equipment or a handheld generator. For added support, the integrated power source is then bonded to an applications housing or structure. This integrated power source can independently power the electronic application. It can also serve as casing or housing by taking the shape of the application enclosure.
