SYGSSC has a new client, Silicon Mobility from France. SYGSSC's service is paid by Silicon Mobility and SYGSSC assists them in the "Going China" Strategy.
The first step is to find potential clients for their novel electric car architecture and also to assist in securing investors. The Beijing auto show was an ideal place to host the CEO and CSO of Silicon Mobility. Two clients immediately assembled their R&D Directors and their teams during the auto show days and two cooperation projects could be established. Many invitations to the local R&D centers of well-known Chinese e-Car firms were received and in one month a team of Silicon Mobility will spend many days in China to see several Chinese auto companies and their R&D centers.
Additionally the first rounds of investor talks were started, VW China was kind enough to give their VIP restaurant space to SYGSSC's COO Dr. Wagner, where investor talks could be conducted. One secret of the success was a thorough market preparation by ultramodern social media tools. In only 2 days the SYGSSC team composed social media information, information cards with QR codes for downloading key ppts and prearranged even meetings in the R&D center of a famous Chinese e-car group in Beijing.
SYGSSC's worldwide connections to the car industry has again paid off and we are looking into a good further success of our new client.
[Radar is just one automotive semiconductor application, of course. Powertrain control is another. At the recent Embedded World show, Silicon Mobility demonstrated what the company calls a field programmable control unit (FPCU) for electric and hybrid vehicle powertrain control. Built with GF’s 55LPx CMOS technology, it offers real-time processing and control of sensors and actuators, coupled with a standard CPU, in a single semiconductor that conforms to the safety standard ISO 26262 ASIL-D. Watch a live demo of Silicon Mobility's electric automotive motor control, here.
The result is a more powerful, flexible and safe architecture for the control and performance of electric and hybrid powertrains. By executing complex powertrain control algorithms quickly in hardware instead of in software, substantial energy savings and increased battery life can be achieved. The company says the FPCU can extend the range of electric and hybrid vehicles by some 32%.]
