ISELED Alliance wins prestigious “Electrons d’Or” award
French trade magazine ElectroniqueS and expert jury choose ISELED Alliance in the automotive segment
Paris, Munich 08 July 2019 – On 27 June 2019, the 2019 Electrons d’Or Awards were presented at a special celebration in the Centre d’Affaires Paris Trocadero. The awards ceremony marked the conclusion of a half-day round-table event on the theme of smart homes and buildings, organized by the leading French trade magazine ElectroniqueS in partnership with the industry association ACSIEL (Alliance Electronique). The coveted awards comprise a total of 14 categories, and have now been presented for the 22nd time.
Alongside various product categories including microcontrollers, analogue/mixed signal, passive components and connectors, embedded, and instrumentation, awards were also presented for innovations and solutions in the automotive, medical technology, aerospace/defence, and smart homes/buildings sectors. Plus there were two awards for start-up of the year and business of the year.
The trade magazine ElectroniqueS compiled a shortlist with more than 80 proposals in total – several in each category. Then the winners were chosen by an expert jury representing industry and research together with the editorial team.
The jury gave the 2019 Electrons d’Or award to the ISELED Alliance for applications in the automotive sector. In the final selection, the innovative concept based on the “digital LED” won out against high-profile competition from leading semiconductor manufacturers. The award was received by Stefan Hoffmann (Inova Semiconductors, on the right in the photo, source: Maÿlis Devaux/Electroniques/Acsiel) and Antonio Poianella (Magna Lighting, on the left) for the ISELED Alliance. The experts’ decision is further testimony to the high innovation potential of ISELED technology that goes far beyond the originally intended application of automotive interior lighting.
