REGULAR BATTERY POWER

CAN'T COMPETE

With virtually unlimited power, housed in extremely light hardware, the DKS isotopic battery solution offers an unprecedented

technical offering. 

 

It's been specifically designed to power unique technological projects related to small satellites, asset tracking, and in-field communications.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Betavoltaic devices have been around since the Betacel pacemaker

Such devices have improved vastly since then through the usage of new materials such as SiC semiconductor devices. SiC has been one of the most interesting improvements due to it’s radiation hardness compared to most common betavoltaic sources and wide bandgap.

A modern SiC betavoltaic measures an open circuit voltage of 2.09 V, a fill factor of 0.86, short circuit current of 75.47 nA/cm2 (135 nW/cm2) and an efficiency of 18.6% efficiency using an inferior electron emitting material.

These devices can be managed by power electronics to find the maximum power point and boost the voltage to 3.3V or higher.

At the center of the solution

One of the intuitive ways to use the latest betavoltaics is to pair the betavoltaic to a chemical battery.

The betavoltaic can power the load during periods of low power intake, e.g. sleep mode, that would reduce the chemical battery’s lifetime significantly.

P N

Electrical power is produced through an arrangement of P-N junctions, sandwiched by beta emitters.

B-rays create electron-hole pairs in the surrounding semiconductors.
