A strategic agreement has been signed between Dukosi and Swindon Silicon Systems to bring Dukosi’s disruptive semiconductor chip based battery management solution to market. By engaging with Swindon on a development programme, Dukosi leverages comprehensive testing and certification capabilities. The companies expect that the resulting product will be available in the second half of 2018 supporting multiple end-markets, including the stringent requirements of the global automotive industry.
Dukosi has developed an approach to battery management that acquires, processes and stores discrete data directly at the cell. Using wireless technology, the system transmits real-time information on cell health and performance to support master level control of the battery pack. Dukosi’s approach optimises system architecture design and management of batteries in electric vehicles, industrial and grid energy storage applications.
“We are thrilled to have entered this relationship with a global automotive and industrial partner supplier like Swindon Silicon Systems, who will provide world class operations, intellectual property, expertise and certification support to our product development program,” said Joel Sylvester, CTO, Dukosi. “We set extremely challenging criteria in our search for a partner – seeking a company who could deliver a product that will respond to the rigorous standards demanded by our customers. Swindon excelled in its response to every challenge.”
“The adoption of batteries is becoming ubiquitous and demand for intelligent sensing technologies is growing considerably,” said Jerry Loraine, Managing Director, Swindon Silicon Systems. “Dukosi’s technology is a great example of how innovation can make an impact in this market and we are excited to be partnering on the development of such an innovative and exciting product. The Dukosi team has developed a solution to tackle battery management challenges in a novel way and are looking forward to applying our expertise in mixed signal ASICs and sensing to help them create a technically compelling, certified and cost-effective product.”
