CIGS Technology Power Generation Milestones at Production Scale with Thin Film

On Match 25th ASTI announced that its thin film CIGS technology reached record power generation of 14 watts at production scale.

Since the installation of new leadership in April 2023, ASTI engineering and production teams have focused on improving their processes and chemical formulation, resulting in continuous increases in power generated from its innovative thin-film PV. The first in a series of milestones was initially announced on September 5, 2023, with subsequent improvements shared at regular intervals.

Using the AST Titan™ module to illustrate improvement, CIGS technology has steadily increased its power generation capabilities over the past seven months. The ASTI Titan™ module is approximately one square foot in size with a thickness of 0.03mm and a weight of just over eight grams.

Below are the recent calculations for power generation* at ASTI Titan™ module dimensions:

•    September 15, 202311.6 watts
•    October 30, 202313.1 watts
•    November 16, 202313.3 watts
•    March 20, 202414.0 watts

Note: Power generation figures reflect STC conditions and AM0

ASTI anticipates reaching its next milestone of 16 watts output for the Titan™ module in the near term. The increases in power generation for its CIGS PV technology align with ASTI strategy and revenue goals for 3rd and 4th quarters 2024 and 2025, meeting the technological needs for ASTI customers in space to achieve end of life power.
