About the company and Technologies:

Founded in 2016, Amber Solutions is an exciting, young Bay Area company developing disruptive solid-state power technologies. Its breakthrough, patented technologies are anchored on three core pillars in silicon chip architecture:

  • AC Direct Power Delivery: DC extraction directly from AC Mains without the use of transformers, rectifiers, or filtering.
  • AC Direct Sensing: Realtime and continuous sensing of the state of AC Mains for full ongoing awareness of normal and potential abnormal electricity states
  • Indestructible AC Switching: Digital detection and protection of solid-state architecture against the range of destructive electrical conditions, including short circuit, overvoltage, inductive load kickback, overcurrent, and overloads. All while this technology delivers switching thousands of times faster than today’s standard electro-mechanical solutions only with solid-sate, silicon-based solutions.

These breakthroughs deliver a dramatic improvement in safety, size, reliability and functionality for every end-point in building electrical infrastructure and products.

The company boasts over 20 patents and over 40 filings in the solid-state electrification space. It has secured prestigious industry awards like the CES Innovations 2021 Honoree, a 2021 Edison Award nominee, a BIG Innovations Award winner 2021 and Time Magazines Best Inventions of 2021 Special Mention and others. The company is well funded and boasts customer engagements with a who’s who list of over 30 global semiconductor and electrical products companies.

Join Amber’s passionate team as we build upon a unique intellectual property base, and power a TRUE Second Electrical Revolution.
