Enovix Signs MOU with One of the World’s Largest Consumer Electronics Companies
FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enovix Corporation (“Enovix”) (Nasdaq: ENVX), the leader in the design and manufacture of next generation 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion batteries, today announced it has signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with one of the largest consumer electronics companies in the world. The agreement provides a framework for a long-term business relationship between the two companies and enables continued evaluation and prototyping of Enovix batteries targeted for consumer electronics.
“We believe the next-gen tech race relies on battery innovation and this collaboration could lead to first-of-its-kind wearable and mobile electronic solutions,” said Cam Dales, GM and Chief Commercial Officer at Enovix. “Over the last two decades, the Li-ion battery has not advanced at the same pace as the consumer electronics industry. We believe mobile devices are at a tipping point, and those that incorporate batteries like ours with the energy density needed to power the technologies of the future will win out.”
The MOU builds on an initial technology qualification program and purchase of cells from Fab-1 by the company for a consumer smartwatch program, and subsequently sets up the basic understandings and agreements in support of the negotiation of one or more definitive agreements. Contingent on continued success in both technical and business negotiations, the companies intend to collaborate in the incorporation and development of Enovix 3D cells into multiple consumer applications, the evaluation of proprietary battery materials for use in Enovix cells and the expansion of Enovix’s manufacturing footprint to meet expected volume requirements.
“This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with a global market leader,” added Dales. “While we have several milestones to achieve until we reach a product launch, this MOU demonstrates a meaningful step forward on both sides,” added Dales.
Enovix is the leader in advanced silicon-anode lithium-ion battery development and production. The company's proprietary 3D cell architecture increases energy density and maintains high cycle life. Enovix is building an advanced silicon-anode lithium-ion battery production facility in the U.S. for volume production. The company's initial goal is to provide designers of category-leading mobile devices with a high-energy battery so they can create more innovative and effective portable products. Enovix is also developing its 3D cell technology and production process for the electric vehicle and energy storage markets to help enable widespread utilization of renewable energy.
