I&C Microsystems to Represent and Distribute Cymbet in Korea

January 12, 2014 by Jeff Shepard

Cymbet Corporation announced today that they are teaming with I&C Microsystems Co., Ltd. to represent and distribute Cymbet's entire family of EnerChip™ Smart Solid State Batteries and power management solutions in Korea. I&C headquarters is in Seoul, Korea. Cymbet EnerChip batteries are created using semiconductor processes and are sold in both standard plastic IC packages and as bare die batteries. EnerChips enable new innovative product capabilities that previously could not be realized with legacy energy storage devices such as coin cell batteries or supercapacitors.

“I&C Microsystems is an ideal partner for Cymbet as they have deep and long term relationships with electronics companies in their region,” said Blair Wilson Cymbet VP of Sales. “I&C’s customers will appreciate the synergies between Cymbet EnerChips and the other products on the I&C line card.”

The EnerChip rechargeable solid state batteries have a footprint as small as the CBC005 bare die that is 1.37mm x 0.85mm x 175 microns thick. Packaged EnerChip batteries with integrated power management range from 4 x 5 x 0.9mm to 9 x 9 x 0.9mm depending on battery capacity size.

“We are extraordinarily pleased to now represent Cymbet in our region,” said E. S. Choi President of I&C Microsystems. “Our customers will be able to accelerate their new product innovation by using Cymbet rechargeable solid state batteries and ultra-low power management solutions.”
