a Bay Area company that was founded in 2009 to develop
leading-edge technology for the management of multi-cell battery
systems.Our initial product is a cost
hardware/software system that manages large lithium battery packs.Compared to conventional battery management
systems, the Element solution provides:
lifetime extension: Substantial increase in the service
life of a battery pack.
Better monitoring, fault detection, and
individual control and isolation of each cell.
The Element team has extensive experience in a wide range of
Battery and pack manufacturing
Digital control and communications
expertise to develop
system-in-package (SIP) chips and a system software stack that allows
cost-effective, dynamic software control of each cell continuously on
charge and discharge.The Element system
leverages the inherent flexibility and control of a software system and
continuously improving cost structure of semiconductors.
is on large lithium battery
packs, the Element technology is equally applicable to all battery
electro-chemistries, and, in fact, allows mixing of different
electro-chemistries in the same pack.
is growing rapidly, with applications as diverse as hybrid and electric
vehicles, renewable energy storage, load shifting for smart grid
emergency and back up power, etc.The
estimated world market for battery management electronics is $5 billion
