Softeco Sismat, the digital subsidiary within the Goup, will be among the partners in the research project WInSiC4AP (Wide band gap Innovative SiC for Advanced Power) granted by European Union in the framework of the H2020 funds dedicated to the research program of the ECSEL Joint Undertaking, the European public-private partnership for the development of new generation microelectronics components and systems.

The project will receive a total EU grant of 6.4 million Euro, involving the collaboration of 24 organisations from 5 European countries, including major research centres and industries such as, among others, CNR, ST Microelectrinocs, Valeo and ENEL Distribuzione.

The goal of WInSiC4AP is to investigate, develop and validate new components for high efficiency, reliable and cost-effective power electronics applications, which can be applied to innovative solutions in several EU strategic sectors including automotive, railway transportation, energy and aero-space.  Softeco will be contributing to the development, demonstration and experimental validation of advanced software systems for the management and control of a new type of inverter and for energy optimisation and intelligent management.
