Infineon and Amber collaborate on solid-state electricity control in silicon

Infineon referred to the Amber technology as a breakthrough, one that could overhaul the massive global electricity infrastructure by enabling replacement of mechanical-based electronic components seen in traditional everyday light switches and other devices with digital, solid-state controls. Amber technology provides digital control of electricity with a fully silicon-based design for greater reliability and control. Bulky magnetic and mechanical components can be replaced with smaller solid-state devices to free up space and lower cost, the two companies said.

Amber, Infineon Team for Digital Control of Electricity

“The goal is to exploit solid-state technology and move beyond electromechanical systems–the bulky electrolytic capacitors, magnetics, transformers and other passive elements standard today,” Casey said. “Our alliance aims to offer a transformation of every electrical endpoint in all residential and commercial buildings to a modern silicon architecture with embedded intelligence.”

The Revolution of Electrical Infrastructure is Starting

The combined intelligence to manage energy dynamically with the digital solid-state structure provides new opportunities to eliminate nuisance AFCI and GFCI trips, support flicker-less LED lights, and provide embedded surge protection in every electrical endpoint powered by Amber’s technologies.

Disrupting Electricity? This Startup Is Digitizing Our Very Analog Electrical System

By John Koetsier, Senior Contributor, Forbes Magazine July 27,2020 Electricity is a paradox. On the one hand, it powers our most modern clean cars and miracles of computing like your phone and laptop. On the other hand, it’s one of the least updated and most ready-for-disruption parts of our homes, offices, and factories. A startup …
