Advancing chip-on-cell-based next generation battery systems
Dukosi Ltd and Suzhou Hengmei Electron Technology, Inc. announced the Joint Development Laboratory at Hengmei’s facility in Suzhou, China.
The lab will accelerate the development and adoption of chip-on-cell-based solutions for more sustainable battery systems that will power the electric future.
“Our shared commitment to driving innovation throughout the battery system value chain will allow us to offer future-proof technology to our customers,” stated Eric Yang, CEO of Hengmei. “Dukosi’s cell monitoring solution revolutionises how battery-based systems are designed and paves the way towards on-cell sensing and processing. Whether electric vehicles, energy storage, or marine applications, the flexible and scalable solution is suitable for all our markets and will significantly reduce time-to-market due to its simple yet powerful architecture. Contributing to a sustainable battery supply chain is also a key objective at Hengmei. Dukosi’s chip-on-cell solution provides 24/7 monitoring and data logging that helps maximise the utilisation of batteries throughout its lifecycle, and lifetime traceability helps comply with regulatory requirements aimed at building a circular battery value chain.”
“China has been at the forefront of electrification of transport and mobility with a well-established battery production ecosystem and 75% of the world’s battery cell manufacturing capacity,” stated Joseph Notaro, Vice President Global Sales, and Marketing at Dukosi. “Hengmei is already a leader in cell connection systems (CCS) and an important and progressive partner who is positioning themselves for growth into global markets. We are proud of our partnership and look forward to closer collaboration and achieving mutual business growth and success.”
The Joint Laboratory was opened on 25 October 2023 in an official ceremony. Nat Edington, CEO of Dukosi, and Joseph Notaro, Vice President Global Sales, and Marketing at Dukosi, were presented with a plaque by Hengmei’s CEO Eric Yang, and the ceremony was attended by senior managers from across Hengmei businesses. Speaking at the event, Yang said: “At this great moment of the third energy revolution in human history, we are more confident than ever in taking the initiative to embrace changes, promote the development and application of new technologies and products with our partners in the global battery ecosystem, and make greater contributions to carbon neutrality.”
