Swindon Silicon Systems and Dukosi to partner for batteries

1 min read

Dukosi and Swindon Silicon Systems have signed an agreement to bring Dukosi’s semiconductor chip-based battery management solution to market.

Dukosi has developed a battery management solution that acquires, processes and stores discrete data directly at the cell. The wireless system transmits real-time information on cell health and performance to support master level control of the battery pack.

This approach is said to optimise 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, Dukosi CTO.

“The adoption of batteries is becoming ubiquitous and demand for intelligent sensing technologies is growing considerably,” said Jerry Loraine, managing director at Swindon Silicon Systems. “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.”

The companies expect that the resulting product will be available in the second half of 2018.
