Early Warning Sensor For Li-Ion Battery Overheating In Electric Vehicles In The Making
November 11, 2023. SmartNanotubes Technologies, a Silicon Saxony startup that has developed the world’s first electronic nose chip “Smell iX16” for mass market applications, and Linxens, the global leader in SmartCard Technology , RFID tags and reel-to-reel flexible electronics united their efforts to develop a disruptive early warning sensor for Li-ion batteries in electric vehicles.
