Lilliputian Systems, Inc., a Wilmington, Mass.-based developer of a Personal Power™ solution for consumer electronics devices, has received an equity investment of undisclosed amount from Intel Capital.
In conjunction with the agreement, Intel will manufacture and supply production wafers, which are critical in the production of all of Lilliputian Systems’ product lines, especially its first product – the USB Mobile Power System.
Wafer manufacturing will be conducted at Intel’s 200mm facility in Hudson, MA, and activities to support this manufacturing will commence immediately.
Lilliputian Systems delivers a small form-factor battery charging solution that provides extended run-time for consumer electronics devices. The company’s patented Silicon Power Cell™ technology is based on highly efficient solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) wafer fabrication methods, and is fueled by recyclable high-energy butane cartridges.
