SOPHIA ANTIPOLIS, France–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Silicon Mobility, the technology player powering control solutions for a
cleaner, safer and smarter mobility, announced today the success of the
GMG-EHL project executed with the support of Valeo on automotive
powertrain electrification. The results of the project have demonstrated
that the Silicon Mobility’s OLEA® solution improves the energy
efficiency, lowers CO2 emissions, strengthens the functional
safety and reduces the cost of electronics system control of mild-hybrid
electric vehicles.

To address the necessary need of reduction of the negative impact of
carbon emitted by road transportation, Silicon Mobility, with the
support of Valeo, responds in 2015 to a project issued by ADEME (French
Environment and Energy Management Agency). The project relies on the
technology program “2l/100km vehicle” from PFA (French Automotive Supply
Chain Association) by building the GMG-EHL project (integrated control
for Gear Motor driven Generator – electronic for Mild-Hybrid vehicles).

After three years of development, Silicon Mobility today welcomes the
achieved results. GMG-EHL enabled the design and industrialization of
OLEA® FPCU (Field Programmable Control Unit), a semiconductor based
solution delivering unique real-time and functional safety capabilities.
OLEA® FPCU comes with OLEA® COMPOSER, its development and calibration
framework. Validated on a Valeo’s mild-hybrid system testbench, OLEA®
solution demonstrated the energy yield improvement of the electric
motor/Inverter, opening the path to 5% further reduction of CO2
emission. The development activities have also demonstrated a possible
reduction of 50% of the bill of material of the control electronics as
well as the software development efforts.

“Silicon Mobility has perfectly addressed the needs of hybridization
systems by developing an efficient control solution,” said Guillaume
Devauchelle, vice-president of Group Innovation and Scientific
Developement at Valeo.

“The collaboration with Valeo, the worldwide leader of hybridization
systems, has been a tremendous acceleration of the industrialization of
OLEA® and the demonstration of its energy and economic benefits,” said
Bruno Paucard, CEO of Silicon Mobility. “We are more than ever committed
to pursuit our relationship to actively contribute to Valeo’s products
success.”

Summary of the project results are available on the ADEME website.
