Amber Solutions announced its patented AC Director DC Enabler is now available as a demo kit for technical evaluations by consumer, commercial and industrial electrical products manufacturers and semiconductor companies. This breakthrough Amber AC direct power system enables DC extraction directly from AC Mains without the use of transformers, rectifiers, or filtering.
“Our success in integrating Amber’s patented technologies into next-generation products will change how the world manages electricity and powers daily life,” Casey said today. “We are making our patented AC Direct DC Enabler available for testing by major global manufacturers and product designers who are eager to innovate and launch powerful new electrical devices and products based on our revolutionary architecture. Our efforts across a range of technology demo kits bring the vision of a new standard for silicon-based digital control of electricity a major step closer to market availability.”
The new AC Direct DC Enabler evaluation platform allows manufacturers to experience and understand the unique capabilities and value Amber’s Enabler can offer in a final commercial ready silicon chip format. The magic of the Amber AC Direct DC Enabler is that it allows manufacturers to add modern intelligence and enhanced functionality to new and existing products using much smaller silicon chips to manage and deliver DC power.
Using a single silicon chip, this patented AC Direct power delivery system provides increased reliability and a dramatically smaller size than today’s standard bulky AC /DC power converters, which will eventually disappear and become a relic of our analog past. With embedded intelligence for digital management of electricity, Amber’s AC Direct DC Enabler™ provides a dynamic and configurable DC delivery range and broad AC input range, offering true global compatibility in a single SKU. Additionally, the silicon architecture simplifies integration into products and lowers manufacturing touch costs by eliminating up to 50 percent of the components in standard analog power converters.
“We discovered a way the physics of electricity can be managed digitally through silicon chips, which changes everything for how all electrical products and even silicon chip solutions are designed,” Casey added. “Digitizing the AC sinewave is a profound breakthrough for building products because we can now use software and algorithms in a silicon chip to control every aspect of electricity. By enabling an exponential increase in features and value that doesn’t require changes to form factors like single gang boxes or retrofit circuit breakers, Amber’s innovative evolution of modern silicon technologies will spark a revolution in how the world manages and uses electrical power, the world’s most important 21st-century commodity.”
