HANOI, VIETNAM – Media OutReach – 20 April 2023– Global technology-solutions provider Arrow Electronics today hosted an EvTech and AIoT of the Future seminar in Hanoi, Vietnam, in collaboration with 10 global technology suppliers. The seminar exhibited a wide range of EV (Electric Vehicle) and AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things) technology products and solutions that will help advance the development of electric mobility and smart cities.
As one of the fastest-growing economies in ASEAN, Vietnam has set out on a journey to transform into a smarter IoT nation. Hanoi is among one of three major Vietnamese cities that have transformed into digital and interconnected urban areas. With the launch of Vietnam’s first IoT Innovation Hub in Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park in Hanoi in 20191, the city has continued to intensify its efforts in adoption of digital and tech solutions that are fundamental to accelerating sustainable urban development.
“Leveraging MediaTek’s AI IoT system-on-chip (SoC) platform, we are collaborating with global companies such as Arrow to provide AI technology solutions and technical support on the implemented IoT applications to improve how the people of Vietnam work and play,” said Miles Sun, general manager of Corporate Sales, Asia & Africa, MediaTek.”
Aiming to achieve net-zero emissions in the transport sector by 2050, Vietnam has recently introduced national policies including tax incentives and subsidies to promote electric vehicle development2. The local transportation industry is ramping up EV production capacity with an expected goal of reaching 3.5 million vehicles by 2040.
Power electronics is a critical part of electrified powertrain in EVs, supplying and controlling the current and voltage throughout the drive system, including motor control, energy management, and charging speed. Wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors such as SiC and GaN are poised to revolutionize power applications and EV innovations. The ability to design and manufacture WBG-enabled devices will allow automotive innovators and engineers to develop EV solutions, helping to deliver superior reliability, performance, and energy efficiency than the current technology.
