Solid-State Silicon Chips Digitalize AC Power Conversion
AmberSemi is working on technologies to digitalize the sense, control, and power conversion of the incoming AC power with solid-state silicon-based solutions.
Ambersemi is developing a chip to drive microcontrollers dimmers directly from an AC source
The AC Direct Lighting Control Engine is currently a configurable lighting control engine that Amber is developing as a silicon chip following technology evaluations by
AC Direct Sensing in Silicon Chip Architecture
By Maurizio Di Paolo Emilio, Power Electronics News, June 28, 2022 With the ability to modernize the current, out-of-date electrical infrastructure as we know it,
‘We Found A Way To Extract DC Directly From AC:’ Amber … With Infineon To Make Electricity Smart
This is a big deal.
Amber Solutions is a small startup that has raised less than $10 million. Infineon is a top-10 global semiconductor manufacturer with almost 50,000 employees and over $10 billion in annual revenue.
It’s also a big signal to the market.
Ousting 1900s-era Tech? Solid-state Circuit Breakers Extract DC from AC without Magnetics
Extracting DC from AC without any magnetics at all? A new solid-state circuit breaker put forth by Amber Solutions in partnership with Infineon Technologies stands to cause some pretty intense waves by displacing the nearly century-old technology upon which our electrical infrastructure is built.
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.
