New efficiency standard regulations for external power supplies by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) became effective in February of 2016. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who design external power supplies into their products must continue to monitor the latest regulations in order to ensure that they are in compliance in the regulations of each region where their product is sold. With the assistance of the key branch of the Transformation Services Corps for Industrial Upgrading at the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Sync Power Corporation is striving to occupy a leading position in Analog Power Management ICs and Discrete Power Devices.
Leading the energy conservation revolution, Sync Power was established as a power management IC design house. However, a lack of funds and HW/SW resources tend to be major problems for startups. “Millions of dollars are being spent on IC design software and facilities, and startups may run out of money easily,” points out the president of Sync Power.
Provided with the assistance of the key branch of the Transformation Service Corps and the resources of Nankang IC Design Incubation Center (NKIC) , Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and technical service, data center operations and IT management services for Sync Power have consolidated product development. Sync Power holds a number of patents and special technologies in other Power Management ICs, including green mode PWM, and DC/DC PWM controllers.
According to Sync Power, IT/EDA services provided by NKIC help them reduce capital costs, achieve higher IT RAS levels and allocate more resources to their core business. At present, Sync Power has a 10 percent share in Analog Power Management ICs market, as well as IPO in August of 2015.
After 10 years of arduous efforts, Sync Power has achieved significant results and continues to move forward. In Future, the key branch of the Transformation Service Corps will take aim at strengthening the environment for entrepreneurs in Taiwan, with the goal of continuing and promote shifts in the electronic industry in order to upgrade Taiwan’s competitiveness on the global stage.
