//php echo do_shortcode(‘[responsivevoice_button voice=”US English Male” buttontext=”Listen to Post”]’) ?>
Amber Solutions has changed its name to Amber Semiconductor (AmberSemi), effective immediately. The move to AmberSemi reflects the company’s intention to more clearly showcase its key technology function, which includes the production of its revolutionary patented technology for direct AC digital control of energy in silicon chips. This achievement paves the way for major semiconductor and electrical product companies to overhaul the global power grid and upgrade electrical products.
Smart systems, smart security systems, and other automation solutions are ripe for residential and commercial buildings, but outdated electrical infrastructure can often get in the way. Amber Semiconductor has developed a number of solid state electrical solutions for smart plugs, circuit breakers and other applications. Integrated software management provides a sophisticated control base for third-party security and automation vendors, as well as electricians/electrical contractors to employ at building electrical outlets.
Solid State Mission
AmberSemi’s core mission is to transform the architecture of electrical products from outdated technologies dating back to the 1950s – but standard today – into smaller, safer and smarter silicon chips, representing a second electrical revolution based on the silicon, arc-free power management and modern technology. artificial intelligent sensing (AI). In an interview with Thar Casey, CEO of AmberSemi, he explained that the power electronics and semiconductor sectors are evolving and are very attractive markets.
“Early on, we knew we were a technology solutions company and that our breakthroughs would come to the silicon chip market. But what remained to be decided were the exact business models and paths to market we were going to follow – like licensing pure technology or building complete physical products around our chips, for example. . Today, we are clearly a fabless semiconductor company with breakthrough technologies that will be in our own chips and will disrupt the semiconductor market, as well as the electrical product markets. Therefore, it was imperative for us to convey this message to the world with our name change,” Casey said.
McKinsey recently published an article estimating that the semiconductor business will continue to grow at a breakneck pace over the next decade, doubling in size to a trillion-dollar industry by 2030. of AmberSemi offer direct synergies, with 75% of growth areas highlighted in research, including consumer electronics, industrial electronics, wireless communications and information technology, placing AmberSemi in a strong position for long-term success.
The legal change of the company’s name to Amber Semiconductor, according to Casey, is in line with the company’s business (primarily partnership) ambitions for 2022 and beyond. The partnerships will provide the company’s core technologies, such as power digitization for revolutionary power supply (AC Direct DC Enabler), power control and protection (AC Direct Indestructible Switch Controller), and Continuous real-time detection of grid electricity status or change. (AC Direct Sensing), all of which will be implemented using solid-state silicon chips. AmberSemi’s name change is a critical strategic step in the company’s efforts to define its core market positioning and expand its presence in the semiconductor and electrical products industry.
“We conducted a series of technical assessments with several companies to validate our solutions,” Casey said. “These are large companies—also in the semiconductor market—that make products like dimmers, outlets, switches, circuit breakers, and basically the full line of electrical products for buildings. Thus, the name change clarifies our identity in a key and important way: we are a fabless semiconductor company that will provide breakthrough energy technologies to both semiconductor suppliers and electrical product companies. »
Semiconductors and energy efficiency
Advances in digital energy management and silicon chips have enabled many companies to position themselves in their own market. AmberSemi believes it marks a milestone in its industrial identity.
“Our name change reflects our true nature as a fabless semiconductor technology provider with breakthrough semiconductor technologies and represents the direction we are taking as a company,” Casey said. Electrical terminals in all buildings around the world are critical; they are based on archaic technologies and need to be upgraded by replacing these obsolete components with modern silicon technology.
“Over the next few quarters, we will bring to market our technologies, in silicon chips, which will be the most efficient method to upgrade these old technology-based products with modern solid-state and smart architecture,” did he declare. “We hold the cards for the globalization of smart digital energy management in silicon chips, which has the potential to revolutionize smart buildings and the very nature of electricity in our world today.”
Electricity has been mainly supplied by huge power plants for nearly a century via fossil fuels, nuclear power or hydroelectric power, accounting for 40% of global CO2 emissions. These power plants continuously deliver massive amounts of electricity to consumers and rely heavily on these older technology architectures, while maintaining centralized control and constant flow. Energy consumption is increasing rapidly around the world, creating a strong demand for alternative energy sources such as solar, wind and even types of electrical storage – or more efficient management of the energy already supplied. daily.
Environmental awareness has increased, bringing governments and individuals closer to renewable energy, such as solar to power buildings, resulting in the installation of more photovoltaic systems, which are inherently variable in efficiency. Due to the dramatic increase in renewable energy, power grids must incorporate digital communication technologies that can give customers and utilities the flexibility required. The need to save money is also a major driver of interest in alternative energy sources.
Consumers can control varied consumption peaks while reselling energy under low load conditions thanks to the interaction between various energy sources. At the micro and macro levels, the interaction between these various energy sources and the home is essential in regulating energy demand and use. A customer will use other types of energy to power their home at a micro–level. At the macro level under a smart grid scenario, a customer will use other types of energy to power the system.
Today’s power grids need to be flexible enough to absorb peaks in renewable energy generation (for example, in the mid-summer months) while preventing the entire power system from collapsing during peak periods. of low production.
The alternative is to make better use of the capacity of the existing network by making it more efficient and smarter. New ways to manage, control and protect the power grid, such as digital control of electricity in silicon chips from AmberSemi, are introduced as a result of this new approach, ensuring better integration capability large amounts of electricity, improving overall system security and reliability and implementing load control procedures and active customer involvement.
AmberSemi has formed strategic alliances with industry partners such as Infineon Technologies. The goal is to continue forging partnerships with semiconductor companies, and Infineon has openly stated its support for AmberSemi’s efforts.
The advancement of the siliconization phase will allow AmberSemi to seize an important market opportunity and accelerate the replacement of mechanical-based electrical components. AmberSemi’s technology has generated substantial interest from the financial community, in addition to capturing the attention of the world’s leading electrical and semiconductor companies. Amber has raised two major Series A and Series B fundraising rounds since 2020, showing strong interest from the Silicon Valley investment community and strong support for the technology’s potential through its fundraising group. investors.
