Avnet Adds ‘Green’ Batteries

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas, a business region of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), announced today that it will carry the complete line of rechargeable solid state batteries and evaluation kits from Cymbet Corporation. This distribution agreement encompasses Cymbet’s entire line of EnerChip™ solid state batteries (SSB) and development tools, including the new EnerChip EP Energy Processor Universal Energy Harvesting EVAL-10 Kit and the EnerChip CC Solar Energy Harvesting EVAL-09 Kit. Cymbet’s energy-efficient products are available from Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas and online at

Cymbet’s EnerChips are used in power back-up, embedded energy and energy harvesting applications. EnerChip SSBs are used in many industries including industrial control, medical, consumer electronics, appliances, handheld devices, transportation, renewable energy and wireless sensors. Because EnerChip SSBs are packaged in standard dual-flat no-leads (DFN) or quad-flat no-leads (QFN) packages, the batteries use surface mount technology assembly and are reflow solder tolerant. The EnerChip CC is a rechargeable solid state battery co-packaged with integrated power management functions that provides a cost-effective single chip drop-in solution.

“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Avnet Electronics Marketing for the distribution of the Cymbet EnerChip product family,” said Bill Priesmeyer, Cymbet CEO. “Our customers will benefit from Avnet’s market leading presence, technical support capabilities, and logistical excellence.”

“As our industry looks toward the future of electronic design, the need for solid-state batteries will become more and more prevalent,” said Alex Iuorio, senior vice president of supplier management for Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. “Not only is Cymbet’s line a key component in wireless sensor networks, but it is also a superior solution in many applications that use traditional coin cells today. This line adds another green technology option for engineers concerned with energy harvesting and eco-friendly end-of-life disposal.”
