Wearables, smart phones, electronic vehicles and Internet of Things devices all depend on one thing: batteries.
As your company and its products increasingly rely on battery power, it’s critical that you consider battery safety, reliability and performance. Batteries can be highly reactive and susceptible to thermal runaway events or even catastrophic failures. Faulty batteries can be costly, pose physical danger to users and risk your company’s reputation. Determining if your approach to integrating batteries into your product is safe and reliable requires a thorough understanding of the chemistry and failure modes in batteries, and an evaluation of which battery technology is ideal for your product.
Proper qualification of batteries in a new application requires attention to the design, manufacturing, testing, storage and transportation of your product. The Ansys team brings together battery design and manufacturing experts with teardown and electrical testing capabilities to ensure the reliability and safety of your product at all phases of its lifecycle.
