Antig's core technology is it's innovative H2PowerChip design which is built around printed circuit board (PCB) technology. This design allows for the creation of a micro fuel cell that has a high power density (output) to size ratio. By leveraging existing IT manufacturing materials and techniques Antig has also been able to reduce fuel cell cost barriers while ensuring improved system performance and reliability. All critical elements required to support the widespread adoption of fuel cell technologies.

The Antig H2PowerChip is the core component that goes into a fuel cell. As the main building block of a stack, it's size and weight determine overall performance. Each cell on an H2PowerChipis responsible for generating the power required to run a device or charge a battery. These cells are packed together with a single step hot press lamination process. (To learn more about the reaction that occurs inside a cell, please view How Fuel Cells Work.)

After H2PowerChips™ have been created, they are layered together (stacked) to generate a specific amount of power. The size and number of chip modules that go into a stack are ultimately determined by the type of device that the stack is designed for. For example, higher power fuel cell systems require larger stacks to support the power demand. However, with a larger stack comes the need for greater power management as well as additional thermal and fluid control. This adds to the overall complexity and size of the system. Conversely, a low power fuel cell system can be quite compact, as it needs a smaller stack and has less management requirements.
