Dukosi & Hengmei Co-Found Development Lab to Focus on Chip-on-Cell BMS Technology
05 November 2023
A joint development laboratory has just been established by Edinburgh-headquartered Dukosi Ltd and Chinese-based Suzhou Hengmei Electron Technology, Inc. (Hengmei).
Situated in Suzhou, just west of Shanghai, this facility will specifically concentrate on the development of chip-on-cell nearfield monitoring technology for use in battery management system (BMS) implementations. Through this, greater visibility will be provided to extend battery pack longevity and enable more effective second life usage of constituent cells.
The laboratory's opening ceremony was attending by Nat Edington, CEO of Dukosi, and Hengmei’s CEO Eric Yang.
“Our shared commitment to driving innovation throughout the battery system value chain will allow us to offer future-proof technology to our customers,” said Yang. “Dukosi’s cell monitoring solution revolutionises how battery-based systems are designed and paves the way towards on-cell sensing and processing. Whether electric vehicles, energy storage, or marine applications, the flexible and scalable solution is suitable for all our markets and will significantly reduce time-to-market due to its simple yet powerful architecture. Contributing to a sustainable battery supply chain is also a key objective at Hengmei. Dukosi’s chip-on-cell solution provides 24/7 monitoring and data logging that helps maximise the utilisation of batteries throughout its lifecycle, and lifetime traceability helps comply with regulatory requirements aimed at building a circular battery value chain.”
“China has been at the forefront of electrification of transport and mobility with a well-established battery production ecosystem and 75% of the world’s battery cell manufacturing capacity,” stated Joseph Notaro, Dukosi’s VP of Global Sales & Marketing. “Hengmei is already a leader in cell connection systems and an important and progressive partner who is positioning themselves for growth into global markets. We are proud of our partnership and look forward to closer collaboration and achieving mutual business growth and success.”
