Engineering the next generation of energy

Developing a larger share of renewable energy like solar is crucial to increase grid reliability and provide power to consumers at a low cost. We help solve the biggest energy challenges and address demands on power resources through efficient power conversion, precise current and voltage sensing, intelligent communication and reliable battery management. 

By making AC-to-DC inverters/rectifiers and DC-DC inverters smaller, more efficient and easier to implement with technology like GaN, we help you make it possible for more homes, buildings and cities to be powered by solar and storage excess energy in energy storage systems.

Enable V2G and V2H with bidirectional charging

As new charging and battery-storage solutions emerge, the concept of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional charging, where EVs provide battery power to reinforce electricity needs, is becoming more mainstream. Our wide-bandgap power, sensing and connectivity technologies enable you to make V2G and V2H energy storage a reality, contributing to more sustainable, efficient and affordable energy management.

The introduction of smart electricity meters was one initial step to make the grid smarter. EV chargers, solar inverters and energy storage systems can also benefit from becoming more integrated into the network, providing powerful insights for convenience, energy savings and grid stability.

With this higher degree of electrification and local generation and storage, high voltage DC and AC in homes will require sensors to keep equipment and people safe. We offer sensing technology for voltage and current sensing as well as temperature and humidity to help enable fast and reliable detection for your designs.

The next step in smart grid systems is a completely modernized grid with real-time intelligence. With connected applications and fast computing capabilities, decisions on load balancing, demand response and value-added services can make the grid more intelligent, efficient and reliable.

Our embedded processing products are designed for edge computing with real-time capabilities and low-power operation. Additionally, a toolbox of security enablers, products and documentation help address emerging security threats.
