The 2021 edition of Syntronic China’s Innovation Competition is now entering its final round. After careful deliberation, the jury has selected five projects that will be competing for the winning title in the up-coming finals.
Syntronic China’s Innovation Competition is an in-house forum aiming to generating new ideas, promote creative thinking and strengthen the bonds between colleagues. The first edition of the competition was held last year. Since it was a sound success, a second edition was launched in June 2021 on the theme “Exploring New Opportunities in the New Era”.
The interest in this year’s competition was high, with contributions being sent in from our offices in Beijing, Chengdu, Tianjin, Nanjing, and Shanghai. The projects were related to a myriad of progressive fields, such as artificial intelligence, automotive electronics, medical equipment, and system testing.
Since the quality of the contributions were high, it was a challenge for the jury to shortlist 20 projects in the competition’s first round. After a second screening, the jury decided that the following five projects will be competing in the finals:
Finalist no. 1: Stream Analyzer Mini
The first project to make it to the finals is an advanced portable stream analyser based on field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology. It has the capacity to analyse the basic structure of stream characteristics and provide essential data.
Finalist no. 2: GEMINI DOHERTY PA
The RF engineers involved in this project developed a novel multi-band radio frequency topology circuit, which can maximize the working efficiency of the radio frequency power amplifier.
Finalist no. 3: Hybrid Tire Pressure Monitoring System
The project consists of a hybrid tire pressure monitoring system. The system makes it possible to calculate the tire pressure and send detailed status reports to the driver.
Finalist no. 4: Syntronic Log Analyze Tool
The engineers active in this project used artificial intelligence technology to develop a tool aimed at improving the overall design quality and assist designers in their in-depth product research.
Finalist no. 5: Smart Counter for Asthma Inhaler
Syntronic’s R&D engineers designed a smart counter for asthma inhalers. The smart counter can record and store usage data through a single-chip microcomputer and sensors, send reminders to the user and send treatment data to the nursing staff and the attending doctor via Bluetooth.
Regardless of which project that eventually brings home the winning title, all five projects serve as examples of our teams’ ability to innovate and of our joint capability to create tomorrow’s technology together.
