The cooperation will market Plessey’s unique, award-winning EPIC sensors (Electronic Potential Integrated Circuit) in synergy with Supreme Components system solutions for applications in the fields of e-health, automotive, sports, fitness and smart lighting. Also, by expanding SCI’s portfolio with Plessey’s technologically advanced RF solutions and Power Management products (LDOs) for applications in DVB and set-top box products, SCI will be able to offer more complete solutions that will fulfill sophisticated customer requirements.
EPIC technology enables the sensor to capture minimal changes of the electric field using a high-precision, non-contact voltmeter within the millivolt region to detect bio-electrical signals (ECG, EMG, EOG, EEG) and changes in electric fields. Plessey is already pioneering the use of EPIC technology, which is used in its recently launched, heart beat monitors, imPulse and inCite.
“We are glad to be associated with a legend in the semiconductor industry, which is well known in the market place for its innovative products in emerging technologies,” said Vick Aggarwala, President of Supreme Components, Inc. “SCI, being a leading market creator in the Asian region, is very excited about this great opportunity.”
David Owen, Plessey’s Global Sales Director, added, “We believe the SE Asia market will be an important one for the design of advanced health care applications that are ideally suited for the Plessey EPIC technology and we are very pleased to be working with Supreme Components who have a unique position in this region.”
