Lambda Uk Invests  In Collaborative University Research Project
Leading power supply manufacturer Lambda UK is investing an initial $100,000 in a collaborative research project with The University of Sheffield. The initial 12-month project is with the Electrical Machines and Drives (EMD) Group at the University. The project is another example of Lambda’s investment in UK engineering, coming alongside its sponsorship of graduates and undergraduates.
Lambda’s technical director Robin Jeffery said ‘’ We hope that this is just the start of a long standing relationship that will demonstrate the capabilities of UK industry and academic research cooperation‘’

Despite specific details of the project being understandably kept secret it can be revealed that the aim of the project is to evaluate methods for substantially improving the power density of ac dc power supplies which can be successfully commercialised in the next 3 -5 years

The collaboration between Lambda UK and The University of Sheffield’s EMD Group has come about after an exhaustive search. Robin Jeffery scoured the country looking for educational establishments with the right facilities, attitude and experience to help advance Lambda’s new product developments. The EMD Group impressed due to a number of factors including their experience of working in a broad range of relevant disciplines including advanced power semiconductor research, efficiency improvement in electrical and electronic systems and mechanical design with world renowned leaders in aerospace and automotive industries .

This announcement from Lambda UK follows closely on the heels of one earlier this year from its Japanese head office Densei-Lambda that it was beefing up its research and development framework for switching power supplies both in Japan and across the World. Commenting on the subject Takeo Suzuki, President of Densei-Lambda said “The company intends to advance the development of leading edge technologies by business-academia collaboration, thereby raising its development capability at the fundamental research level. Recently Densei Lambda has opened a new Advanced R&D Centre is Kyushu with close ties to the local university”. The company intends to increase its R&D staff by at least 25% in the next three years.
