Dukosi is a highly innovative semiconductor company that has been designing chips for wireless, power management and battery management applications since 2003. The company's battery sensing technology targets next generation lithium ion battery management systems for future hybrid electric vehicles, and sets new standards in performance, accuracy, and functionality, enabling automotive manufacturers to make lighter, more fuel-efficient cars with lower CO2 emissions, and more reliable battery packs.
The market for hybrid vehicle battery management systems will be around $2.5 billion in 2015. Of this total, the market for sensor devices is likely to be in the order of $800 million. The move by the automotive industry from nickel metal hydride batteries to lithium batteries will place much greater demands on the accuracy of battery monitoring sensors. Dukosi's technology is well-placed to meet these demands.
