Home > Press > Cymbet Presents at the Semiconductor Research Council/National Science Foundation Forum on Nano-Morphic Systems

Abstract:
Cymbet Corporation today announced that Dr. Stephen W. Downey, director of technology at Cymbet, presented at the Semiconductor Research Council (SRC)/National Science Foundation (NSF) Forum on Nano-Morphic Systems: Processes, Devices and Architectures. The event was held at the Stanford University's Center for Integrated Systems on Nov. 8-9, 2007.

Cymbet Presents at the Semiconductor Research Council/National Science Foundation Forum on Nano-Morphic Systems

The focus of the forum was to understand the technological challenges that must be addressed to design and develop a micron-sized system that performs in-vivo, or cellular-level, sensing and possible interaction with living cells. It will be necessary to overcome numerous challenges in order to achieve such a system and the forum's goal was to highlight what may ultimately be possible given the present comprehension and projected future capabilities of science.

Dr. Downey's presentation focused on the miniaturization limits of thin-film, solid-state batteries. According to Dr. Downey, "The charge storage capability of ideal materials is roughly 10 to 15 nano-coulombs per cubic micron. While the power output of such a nano-battery will be highly dependent on the system architecture, power outputs of 1 to 10 micro-watts for about one second should be possible. This may be enough power to enable the sensing and data processing functions necessary in a nano-morphic system; however, it may pose a challenge to the wireless communication technology which would be required to communicate with the outside world."

Additional presentations and discussions on the topic of integrated power sources focused on energy scavenging as a means of recharging the power source, a technique enabled by the unique characteristics of thin-film batteries manufactured by Cymbet Corporation. These features include long device life, the ability to survive many thousands of charge/discharge cycles and low self-discharge rate.
