Posted: 10 Jun 2005 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share


International Rectifier (IR) has revealed plans to participate in a consortium to drive innovation in energy efficiency in China. In addition to IR, consortium members will include three universities in China: Harbin Institute of Technology, Zhejiang University and Tsinghua University.

The mission of the consortium is to provide a forum for the continuing cooperation between academia and industry and to develop enabling technologies for high efficiency, low cost appliances in China.

"Driving the adoption of energy-saving motion control technology has long been a mission of IR," said David Tam, VP of the consumer and industrial business sector at IR.

In a joint statement, Professors Xu Dian Guo and Li Tie Cai of Harbin Institute of Technology, Professor Li Yong Dong of Tsinghua University and Professor Xu De Hong of Zhejiang University noted that the combination of global technology leaders and universities will enable the brightest engineering minds in China to create appliance design guidelines that will assist both industry and government in tackling worldwide energy shortages.

IR pioneered the development of iMOTION, an integrated design platform for appliance motion control.
