With its improved temperature endurance the 3.6 Volt high temperature AA size lithium battery ‘SL-560’ from Tadiran Batteries is outstanding: while a temperature range of 55 °C to +130 °C is specified, extensions are possible to 80 °C and to +150 °C.
Thus, the battery is well-qualified for use under extreme conditions; it is applied in circuit breakers, autoclaves, high temperature data loggers, lacquer drying kilns, burn-in equipment and oil well drilling equipment.
The SL-560 battery is suitable for memory back-ups with a current draw up to approx. 2 mA. A special version with an improved start-up behaviour (less voltage delay) is available.
In addition to the SL-500 series, Tadiran Batteries manufactures a complete line of lithium thionyl chloride batteries, including a variety of primary cylindrical batteries, PulsesPlus batteries for high current pulse applications, coin-sized cells and custom battery packs. High power models of the TLM series are also available.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
