NGK is Exhibiting at CEATEC 2020 ONLINE
October 14, 2020
NGK will exhibit an innovative power source for IoT devices, the EnerCera battery, which will contribute to the New Normal Society
NGK INSULATORS, LTD. (hereinafter "NGK") based in Nagoya, Japan, announced that it will be exhibiting virtually at CEATEC 2020 ONLINE, which will be held from October 20 (Tue) through October 23 (Fri).
CEATEC is the largest international exhibition in Japan for the technology and electronics sectors. Due to the impact of COVID-19, this year’s exhibition will be 100% virtual for the first time. The theme this year is “CEATEC – Toward Society 5.0 with the New Normal”.
Under the corporate theme “A power solution for realizing the New Normal Society”, NGK will be exhibiting an innovative power source for IoT devices, the EnerCera battery. NGK will be presenting at both the General Exhibit Area and the New Normal Theme Exhibit Area of the virtual site.
The EnerCera battery is a compact, thin, high energy density, high power lithium-ion rechargeable battery with high heat resistance characteristics.
A variety of EnerCera battery sizes will be on display at NGK’s virtual exhibition booth. NGK will also be introducing a maintenance free IoT device concept, using the rechargeable EnerCera battery with Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) and energy harvesting technology. Furthermore, NGK will introduce IC card circuit board compatible with the short-range wireless NFC charging standard which was developed together with Fujikura Ltd. and Torex Semiconductor Ltd. These circuit boards with the EnerCera batteries will significantly improve the performance of next generation smart cards.
