ISELED Alliance welcomes three new members
The ISELED Alliance has announced that Analog Devices Inc., Renesas Electronics and Simoldes have joined the industry alliance.
The open industry alliance is comprised of 46 companies from all over the world.
Founded in 2016, the ISELED Alliance is an open industry alliance with the aim of building a comprehensive ecosystem based on ISELED technology – in other words, a complete system solution for innovative automotive lighting. Members include leading ‘lighting’ Tier 1s, LED and semiconductor manufacturers, specialised lighting designers and many others.
Analog Devices, a global specialist in design, manufacturing, and marketing of high-performance analogue, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing (DSP) integrated circuits (ICs), has developed a technology called ADI E²B which enables efficient Ethernet connectivity to edge sensors and actuators.
One of the first products in this family supports efficient bridging from 10BASE-T1S to ISELED/ILaS without the need for a microcontroller on the edge node. This technology makes it easier to integrate ISELED/ILaS into future automotive Ethernet-based architectures. “Analog Devices is proud to join the ISELED Alliance as we bring together the 10BASE-T1S E²B and ILaS/ISELED technologies to help enable new innovative lighting systems,” says Vlad Bulavsky, General Manager of Automotive Connectivity at Analog Devices.
As one of the global suppliers of microcontrollers, analogue, power and SoC products, Renesas Electronics offers comprehensive solutions for a wide range of automotive, industrial, infrastructure and IoT applications. The company is an active member of various consortia in the industrial and automotive sectors. In cooperation with the ISELED Alliance, Renesas will be contributing its system expertise and developing future-oriented system solutions with ISELED technology based on its broad portfolio of microcontrollers.
“ISELED Light and Sensor network is an innovative concept to simplify integration of lights, sensors and actuators,” said Satoshi Yoshida, Senior Director, Automotive Digital Products Marketing Division at Renesas. “I am confident that the combination of easy-to-integrate LED lightning solutions and Renesas’ robust automotive product portfolio will allow us to deliver optimised automotive lighting solutions for our customers.”
Founded in 1959, Simoldes employs over 6,000 people. The group of companies produces quality tools for injecting thermoplastics. Simoldes started supplying plastic parts in 1981 and is now a major player supplying all relevant OEMs. With 19 plants, three engineering centres and five ACS (Advanced Customer Services), the Simoldes Group is present in twelve countries, providing innovative solutions for a sustainable future in the automotive and non-automotive sectors.
"The ISELED Alliance is delighted to welcome Analog Devices, Renesas and Simoldes as new members," says Robert Kraus, CEO of Inova Semiconductors and Chairman of the ISELED Alliance. "The tremendous success and global acceptance of ISELED is largely due to the successful work of the Alliance members. Meanwhile four ISELED conferences since 2018, organised for the worldwide ISELED community with up to 400 participants, have also contributed to this."
