Blue Spark Technologies Unveils Innovative Printed Battery Designs

New Blue Spark UT Series (ultra-thin) paves the way for innovative

RFID card and label solutions; Blue Spark HD Series (high-drain)

provides a power boost to handle drug delivery patches and novelty

greeting cards

CLEVELAND–(EMWNews)–Blue Spark Technologies, the leading supplier of thin, flexible printed

battery solutions, now offers two additional battery designs that expand

potential markets and product development possibilities for the companys

eco-friendly, carbon-zinc printed battery technology. The new battery

designs are variations on the companys ST

(standard) Series of thin battery solutions and were developed in

response to customer needs for customized low voltage power sources to

power new and existing products.

According to Matt Ream, Blue Spark Technologies

vice president of marketing, The new products

are a natural progression of Blue Sparks

printed electronics manufacturing and engineering capabilities. Design

engineers and system integrators frequently turn to us to customize our

standard green

printed batteries to meet their unique product design specifications.

This customization, combined with our rapid prototyping and expert

technical support, typically helps them realize lower production costs

and faster time-to-market.

Blue Sparks two new battery designs can be

integrated into the design, manufacturing and packaging of a vast array

of products easily, affordably and with

reliable results. The new products include:

  • Blue Spark UT (ultra-thin) Series. The industrys

    thinnest printed battery currently in production, UT batteries are

    approximately 30 percent thinner and thus extremely flexible, even

    under high duty levels. The lower laminate profile (as thin as 500

    microns ~ 0.020 in) makes the UT Series well-suited to a wide variety

    of thin form factors, including transit tickets, loyalty cards, smart

    cards and RFID smart labels. Blue Spark

    has been working with a variety of printed display and electronic ink

    manufacturers to create some truly innovative new products and

    applications ranging from gaming to financial transactions.

Blue Spark UT batteries are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Typical standard form factors are 1.5V and can deliver approximately 12

mAh of energy. Overall voltage, storage capacity and thickness can be

adjusted according to individual customers

power requirements.

  • Blue Spark HD (high-drain) Series. Designed to provide an extra

    boost of power in applications requiring higher peak current delivery,

    the HD Series offers about 5x greater peak drain current than Blue

    Sparks ST (Standard) Series. They are

    well-suited for use in applications involving transmission of power to

    an LED, display, sensor, speaker or other electronic device. They are

    also ideal for power-hungry RFID applications, such as active or

    real-time location systems (RTLS). In addition, their customizable,

    symmetric design allows for non-rectilinear shapes, such as might be

    used in transdermal drug delivery patches, wound care, and such

    novelty items as greeting cards with miniature speakers. Typically,

    peak current delivery can be in the area of 6 mA and beyond, depending

    on individual applications circuit


Blue Spark HD batteries are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.

The new cells feature 1.5V battery chemistry and overall energy storage

capacity similar to the Blue Spark ST (Standard) Series. Blue Sparks

engineering staff works closely with designers develop the right battery

for each application.

All Blue Spark carbon-zinc printed batteries offer a significantly

thinner profile than standard button or coin batteries. Plus they are green

and disposable, fully meeting the European Unions

RoHS (Restrictions on Hazardous Substances) directive. For OEMs,

converters and IT system designers interested in integrating thin

batteries into their products and applications, Blue Spark Technologies

offers deep domain expertise, extensive technical support, rapid

prototyping and testing services.
