High participation in the Syntronic China Innovation Competition

The first edition of the Syntronic China Innovation Competition attracted ample attention and a very high participation. The competition was successfully concluded in Beijing this fall.

The talented winners were Li Yi and Wang Min, with a project named Onboard Life Detection. The innovative solution makes it possible to detect life signs in a vehicle when it is parked and send a warning to the owner’s mobile device, who is then able to react in time.

It was the first time that Syntronic China organized a creative in-house competition of this calibre. The aim was to provide our China-based team members with a forum for generating new ideas, to promote creative thinking, and to strengthen the bonds between colleagues.

From summer to autumn, from the north to the south, Syntronic China’s new competition was welcomed with excitement on all our sites in the country. The participating teams had different strengths and areas of expertise such as, for instance, telecom, industrial, automotive, smartphone technology, IoT and semiconductor technology. In the context of the competition, the teams came forward with innovative ideas for how to improve tools, software, product models, systems, and solutions. The ideas demonstrated how deep and extensive Syntronic’s technical strength is.

After two months of intense competition, five teams successfully advanced to the finals. At the end of autumn, the finals were organized simultaneously in Syntronic Beijing, Tianjin, Chengdu, and Nanjing site at an online forum. Subsequently, an award ceremony was held in Beijing. “I hope that more employees can participate in the competition in the future. Take your innovative dreams and ideas, put them forward, and demonstrate how they will work, Zinser Zhao, General Manager of Syntronic Asia, said. “We hope that through the innovation competition and our newly established innovation laboratory, we can put ourselves on an even more active position on the market.” he concluded.

Syntronic milestone: 15 years in China

Bigger, better, and stronger were the keywords when we celebrated one of our most important achievements as a global company: the 15th anniversary of our presence in dynamic China. “I am very proud of what we have done in China. One of the key factors of our success is that we work as one Syntronic globally,” said Björn Jansson, Group CEO.

The first chapter of our story in China was written in 2005, when the Beijing office saw the light of day. Approximately thirty talented co-workers joined our team in the early days.

Higher hopes for Alzheimer’s treatment thanks to Syntronic software

The likelihood of finding a cure for the chronic neurodegenerative disease known as Alzheimer’s is increasing, thanks to a joint research project by Syntronic Gothenburg, the University of Gothenburg (GU), and the Karolinska Institute (KI). The team is about to release a brain network analysis software that will be used by medical professionals all over the world – and bring hope to the 35 million Alzheimer’s patients.

Today, over 50 million people suffer from severe memory loss that at best erases the image of what they did five minutes ago – and at worst makes their own children look like strangers. Roughly 70 % of them are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Every year, an additional ten million families receive the news that a parent or spouse is affected.

Mercifully, scientists are on the verge of alleviating the suffering. At the forefront of the battle, Syntronic, KI and GU push the frontiers forward through enabling new ways of gathering information about the workings of the human brain.

Scientific progress

Syntronic’s team consists of highly skilled researchers and engineers with extensive expertise within various focus areas. Their current mission, in partnership with the University of Gothenburg and Karolinska Institute, is to perfectionate a software that will make it possible to analyse the human brain network in greater detail. A crucial goal when it comes to Alzheimer’s and other neurological disease is to comprehend how they emerge and progress in the brain. That knowledge will hopefully enable the development of treatments and a cure.

Today, scientists have no answers to why Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases develop and cannot be eradicated. What they do know is that the human brain is structured as a complex network with various regions that interact with each other. That interaction can now be studied, courtesy of the software Syntronic, GU, and KI are developing, known as brain analysis using graph theory (BRAPH). According to the researchers responsible for the project, it will unveil new information about the brain’s structure, how brain signals evolve and how pathological molecules disperse throughout the brain way.

Essential knowledge on the brain’s organisation and structure will be derived by the software, from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI (fMRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and electroencephalogram (EEG) data. Once that information is acquired, scientists can analyse how the brain networks of patients with neurological conditions differ from those of healthy individuals.

In addition, the software will enable comparisons of the same patient’s brain at different points in time. Combined, the new information that medical professionals will access courtesy of the software will increase the likelihood that a cure will see the light of day significantly.

Syntronic China expands business in the semiconductor field

Syntronic has signed a cooperation agreement with a well-known semiconductor enterprise in China. The aim is to provide customized UV spectrophotometer development services, which will help customers measure and control the ozone concentration in silicon wafer production accurately.

The UV spectrophotometer designed by Syntronic uses ultraviolet light of a specific wavelength for detection, which enables it to calculate the ozone concentration value. It can display and output the concentration signal to the specified terminal directly. Its built-in control system enables remote operations and instrument parameter modifications.

The project is led by a team from Syntronic Tianjin Office, composed of senior technical experts including digital, analog, software, and mechanical engineers as well as project managers. It combines optics, chemistry, mechanics, digital control, communication, and embedded programming. As a result, it is possible to provide hardware and software development services, such as flow control, temperature compensation, photometric compensation, optical sampling detection, signal processing, analog and digital output, and remote communication. The product supports the simultaneous detection of gas-phase and liquid-phase samples, which results in industry-leading accuracy.

This is a new breakthrough and practice for Syntronic in the semiconductor field and it will enable improved key equipment localization and intelligent manufacturing in the industry. In the future, Syntronic will deepen its research and development efforts within various field even further, continuing its mission of providing customers with complete and reliable solutions.
