Tech startup tyco is making a name for itself with a novel silicon valence electron, and it’s not the first company to do so
The Silicon Valley startup tycom is coming up with a new chip that could help power the world’s electric vehicles and electric vehicles will eventually become the standard.
Silicon Valley startup Tyco has been quietly developing an electric car that uses silicon to power its motors, but its announcement Tuesday was a big deal.
The startup said it had successfully tested the prototype, which has a battery that can recharge itself and run on power from an array of solar panels.
The chip, which is being dubbed the Tyco Silicon Valley, uses a new technology known as silicon oxide, which it says makes it possible to power a battery without the need for expensive, energy-hungry batteries.
The battery, which Tyco is calling the Tycoson, could be made of a combination of graphene and carbon nanotubes, which could give it a larger surface area than lithium-ion batteries, which are used for a variety of electronics.
“This chip is the world-leading solution for powering EVs and other electric vehicles that require ultra-high-power batteries, with the ability to store and discharge energy at up to 2,000 percent of their rated capacity,” the company said in a statement.
“We are excited to share this breakthrough with the automotive community and look forward to the creation of an even more powerful solution for EVs in the future.”
The Tyco chip is based on the research that was done by a team at Stanford University.
That team, led by a Stanford professor, found that the carbon nanowires on silicon chips were able to absorb light and transmit it to a battery.
The researchers then figured out how to make them more conductive.
The Tycosons battery packs a lithium ion battery with a cell of carbon nanorods.
The cells are made of silicon, carbon nanodots, and other materials that are both flexible and conductive, making them better suited to high-voltage power sources like solar panels and wind turbines.
“In other words, we have found a way to make the most efficient and efficient battery out there,” Tyco’s cofounder and CEO Chris Gaffney said in the company’s announcement.
“We believe this is a big step in the right direction for the industry and a key component in the battery of the future, and we’re excited to be building on the progress we’ve made to make it the standard.”
