Ascent Solar & CarTech Drive Battery Charging Forward

The two companies have collaborated to use Ascent's thin-film CIGS solar modules for automotive battery charging


Ascent Solar has announced the initial sale of SOLab Basic and SOLab Premium products, as branded by Ascent's joint development partner, CTC CarTech Company.

SOLab is an autonomous solar charger meant for automotive battery cycling & trickle charging.

Integrating Ascent's thin-film CIGS solar modules into SOLab Basic and SoLab Premium products is claimed to be the first of its kind of application for automotive battery charging solutions.

Sebastian Hotz, CarTech's Head of Sales Product Division, says, "With Ascent we found the best partner for delivering innovative products into the field of autonomous solar chargers for automotive professionals."

Hotz continues, "The production of thin film solar is highly innovative for our product and ideal to manufacture. Not only the functionality but also the product design from Ascent makes the product very unique."

Victor Lee, Ascent Solar's President & CEO, adds, "We are extremely pleased with these innovative products and are proud to be able to work closely with CarTech to bring them to market. These products are a good illustration of the multitude of applications that Ascent's unique technology can be utilised in."



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
