[Dies] AME Lunch Lecture

Thu, 2019-11-28 12:40 to 13:20

Applied Micro Electronics B.V. (AME) is a developer and producer of electronics, mechanics and software. As an original design manufacturer (ODM), situated in Eindhoven, we strive to deliver cost-effective, high-quality products in close cooperation with our customers for both the consumer and industrial markets. We take full responsibility for the development of our customers’ products. This responsibility starts at the project definition phase and does not end at the production phase, as we offer extensive product service and life-cycle support.

Alternative Fuel Controller for Direct Injection

The lunch lecture will offer a generic view on the process stream maintained within AME. This includes the fields of operation, our departments, and some nowadays applications of that busies our engineers. After the generic talk, one of our colleagues (Quirijn van der Mark) will discuss his experience as a part-time employee, combining both his study and the work at AME. In particular, Quirijn is going to discuss his involvement in one our latest projects, the design and verification of an after-market alternative fuel solution for vehicles, embedding the Alternative Fuel Controller for Direct Injection. This involves emulating the gasoline direct injection to trick the ECU of the vehicle to believe that it is still driving on gasoline. Not only is Quirijn involved in the verification of our solution, he was part of the initial development team!

[Dies] Prodrive Excursion

Wed, 2019-11-27 08:15 to 13:00

In close cooperation with our clients, we develop and deliver a wide range of highly competitive products, systems and solutions, employing techniques that are extremely efficient and often unique. We do everything in-house, we cover virtually every conceivable market and we use the very latest process techniques, many of which we have developed ourselves. As a result of this innovative approach, we are among the fastest-growing technology companies in Europe.

Quite literally everything centers on the customer, our passion for technology, and on constantly improving our business processes. This ‘DNA’ has been crucial to our company since we began operating in 1993 and it’s the foundation of our success as well as that of our clients. Working for – and usually in close partnership with – you, we develop and produce electronic and mechatronic products and systems with an exceptional price-performance ratio. 

We can do this because we have smart ways of optimising, integrating and robotising, and because we produce everything we need in-house. These are just some of the reasons why we’ve been able to build a competitive edge over all other providers of technical solutions, anywhere in the world. When we began in 1993, we were helping clients to develop the electronics for their products and systems.

But we were soon handling the entire manufacturing process for them. It works better that way. We bring all of the design and production in-house, so that we can perfect, automate and check it down to those all-important details. Another factor is that we are continually expanding our own boundaries. As a result, we produce solutions for customers that are often smarter, better and more efficient – solutions that give them a competitive edge. 

More information about the topic for the excursion will follow.

We will provide the racetrack, the bruches and the electric machine, the rest is up for you to configure. Put your car knowledge to the test and design the fastest, most efficient and/or most beautiful car!

The activity will be organised in the form of a scrap heap challenge, but you are allowed to bring your own materials as well.
