LITTLETON, Colo., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Infinite Power Solutions (IPS), an industry leader in solid-state, thin-film energy storage and energy-harvesting power management products, has today announced a global distribution agreement with their first Japanese distributor, Tokyo Electron Device Limited (TED), a market leading technology trading company that provides customers with electronic components and solutions. Under the agreement, TED will distribute IPS' award-winning THINERGY® Micro-Energy Cell (MEC) and INFINERGY® Micro Power Module (MPM) product families in Japan, with limited distribution rights for Korea and Taiwan. INFINERGY MPMs are miniaturized "plug & play" power modules with integrated power management and solid-state energy storage that simplify the design and adoption of self-powered, microelectronic systems using ambient energy.
The INFINERGY product family integrates IPS' industry-leading THINERGY solid-state MEC devices, which provide unrivaled cycle life and near loss-less energy storage. The MPMs are designed to efficiently store variable AC and DC charge energy from common energy harvesting devices. Because these MPMs provide maintenance-free, autonomous power for decades, they outlive and outperform conventional rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors.
In addition to exploring typical target applications for wireless sensor nodes, TED will work with IPS to penetrate companies whose main focus is the consumer electronics market (Sony, Toshiba, Panasonic, to name a few).
"We are so pleased to announce our distribution plans with Tokyo Electron Device," said David Squires, IPS vice president of strategic marketing. "We recognize that the Japanese market is unique, with a very different supply chain model; we believe our interests will be best served while working with Japanese distributors. The IPS product family is a good fit for the energy conscious and innovative Japanese market, so it's exciting to be opening new markets and meeting with new customers in Japan."
The full line of THINERGY MECs and INFINERGY MPM products will be available for distribution into the Japanese market, as well as the THINERGY Applications Development Platform (ADP) kit. Data sheets for the full line of IPS products are available on the company website.
