LITTLETON, Colo., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ --The FlexTech Alliance announced recipients of the 2010 FLEXI Awards at the 9th annual Flexible Electronics & Displays Conference and Exhibition held February 2-4, 2010, in Phoenix, Ariz. The FLEXI Awards recognize significant accomplishments in R&D, innovative product development, and leadership in education within the flexible, printed electronics and displays industries.
Infinite Power Solutions' THINERGY™ Micro-Energy Cell (MEC®) products - revolutionary solid-state, rechargeable, energy storage devices that outperform all other thin-film batteries - won the FLEXI Award in the most innovative product development category. These paper-thin micro-energy cells are flexible and provide unrivaled rechargeability, cycle life and power performance serving a variety of vertical markets. Able to operate in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C, IPS' ultra-thin MECs offer extremely low self-discharge rates, low cell resistance and unprecedented power, making it the world's thinnest and most powerful battery for its size.
MECs are ideally suited for use with all forms of ambient micro-energy harvesting techniques for continuous recharging - such as solar, thermal, RF, magnetic and vibration energy - delivering a safe, clean and maintenance-free power source for today's electronic devices that lasts the life of the system.
"The review committee received multiple nominations in each category, a testament to the innovation and strength that's building in the flexible, printed electronics industry," noted Michael Ciesinski, FlexTech's CEO, in presenting the 2010 awards.
