Dukosi is a fabless semiconductor company. It enables the design of lighter, less complex, safer, high-voltage batteries, with more granular data reporting and local on-cell processing. It does this by providing a wireless communications IC on each cell, eliminating all the wires, pins, connectors, and printed circuit boards of modular battery systems. Communication from hundreds of cells to a central BMS master is achieved through a near field communication approach removing the need for line-of-sight transmission, enabling a flexible, true cell-to-pack architecture.
