Silicon Mobility, a technology powerhouse, launched its subsidiary in Shanghai. The subsidiary plans to local customers to ensure powers solutions for a cleaner, safer, and smarter mobility.

The subsidiary will be headed by its co-founder and vice president of operations for Silicon Mobility, Vincent Cruvellier. The co-founder is in-charge of the leadership in the supply chain and quality management in China.

Recently, the France-based company announced its latest high-efficiency inverter and electric motor control application, the OLEA APP INVERTER HE. The new inverter was optimized for its Field Programmable Control Unit (FPCU) to increase the range of hybrid and electric vehicles up to 20 percent while powered by the same battery capacity.

The companies headquarter is in Sophia-Antipolis, France and it has operations in Germany, Silicon Valley, CA., Japan, and China. the company provides electrification solution that includes semiconductors and applications for the control of the key elements of the electrified powertrain.

Bruno Paucard, President and CEO of Silicon Mobility, acknowledged that China is leading the car's electrification revolution with a strong take-off of the volume of electric vehicles with more than 1.5 million sold in the last two years.

He added that with a huge demand for a complimentary consultation on top of their standard efficient and safe control solutions for electrified powertrain, it makes sense for them to have a local presence. He also said that they can accelerate their customer's start of production and provide necessary support with their expert support team.

The company changes the electric vehicle industry by extending the range of electric vehicles by 30 percent, lowering the cost of electronics, and by shortening the battery charging time by 10 percent. The newly released automotive semiconductor, OLEA FPCU, was designed for faster critical information processing with 100 percent predictability and accuracy.

The company plans to dominate the globe in cleaner, safer and smarter mobility through the world's largest market for electric vehicles.

The company's design to develop and sell flexible, real-time, safe and open semiconductor solutions for the auto industry to increase energy efficiency and reduce pollutant emissions coincides with China's advocacy for clean, renewable energy.

In previous years, China provides subsidies for startups that plan to invest in building hybrids and electric vehicles. The Chinese government imposed quotas for the companies to manufacture and sell more renewable energy powered vehicles. The company's subsidiary in China is expected to contribute to the development of electric powered vehicles in the country.
