Experience

  • Gearbox Motor Generator

    A new and powerful product for hybrid engine architecture. Combined with the gearbox, this generator saves 5-8% of more fuel on medium-displacement utility vehicles and 10-20% on light commercial vehicles.

  • Electric Supercharger

    Unlike turbochargers driven by exhaust gas, the electric supercharger (operating with an electric motor) responds instantaneously. This strengthens engine torque at low revolutions, eliminates turbo lag, and improves the vehicle’s acceleration. This innovation also enables the downsizing of combustion engines, an important factor in reducing fuel consumption.

  • AxxceLTE eNodeB

    The AxxceLTE eNodeB product family provides LTE wireless access over a wide range of frequency bands in a compact outdoor design. The family supports all-in-one and distributed architectures and can be customized to provide optimal performance in the carrier, wireless ISP, industrial, public safety, and private markets, with additional advanced, self-optimizing network features.

  • Intel XMM 7160 Slim Modem

    The Intel XMM 7160 slim modem platform combines Intel X-GOLD 716 digital and analog baseband, featuring an integrated power management unit with the Intel SMARTi 4G transceiver for 2G/3G/LTE and the Intel Release 9 Protocol Stack.

  • Smart Meters

    Co-developed smart meters based on different microcontrollers, which support a wide variety of features for residential meters:
    - RFID/smart cards and STS prepaid methods
    - Advanced payment features
    - GSM and RF connectivity
    - DLM standard

  • CDMA Fixed Wireless Phone

    A fixed wireless phone based on CDMA technology that can work with a cellular network and provide good quality voice and stable SMS services. The phones support caller ID, call forwarding, call waiting, call hold, and SMS and phonebooks with large capacity.
