BASIS IME window controller shocks at Auto Shanghai 2021
Under the wave of intelligence and electrification the car space will enable more mobile living and working scenarios. More technological and futuristic cars will move from science fiction blockbusters to real life.
With new three-dimensional and minimalist designs for car interiors and more human and intelligent human-vehicle interaction will call for epoch-making intelligent car interior technology.
Silver Basis, a leading manufacturer of automotive molding, has designed, developed and manufactured a subversive window controller with its self-developed IME in-mould electronic technology. This technology has a series of advantages such as hidden 3D touch switch, blind operation, sensitive touch control and anti-mistake operation and more.
This technology has made its world premiere with Faurecia at the Shanghai Auto Industry Exhibition in April this year and became a star product sought after by major OEMs. The future is here, the revolution of intelligent cockpits has begun!
World-leading IME process
BASIS's newly developed window controller uses its unique IME technology to achieve touch and backlight on any curved shape, solving a major technical problem in the industry. SMT surface mount technology is well integrated into the IME process to achieve cost-controlled, high-quality, batch able and fully automated intelligent manufacturing.
Fashion forward diamond cut design
The stylish diamond-shaped cut-out design on the window controller with a staggered height allows users to operate blindly on different diamond surfaces. The surface of the product adopts an acrylic injection moulding process and gives a crystal-like appearance which significantly improves the value of the interior compared to the traditional physical buttons and will further lead the design trend of the intelligent cockpit.
Flexible Follow-the-Shape Circuit Printing Technology
Through repeated verification we have successfully achieved the printing of stretchable conductive circuits on film. The electronic components are soldered to the flexible film circuit by means of SMT, and the high pressure forming process realizes the circuit arrangement with the shape. This saves a great deal of back space while meeting the demands of differentiated styling. This makes the product more compact and lighter and achieving the effect of a lightweight interior product.
Highly integrated manufacturing delivery system
The window controller cover encapsulates conductive circuits and electronic components inside the injection molded adhesive and inter-connects with the control board on the vehicle through FPC connectors which allows us to achieve touch control, independent backlighting, pressure feedback, vibration feedback and other functions.
Relying on BASIS’s strong tooling manufacturing technology one-stop whole industry process chain and global manufacturing base, it provides sufficient guarantee for technology, production capacity and service for the continuous and stable delivery for the integrated touch panels.
After the stunning debut of the IME window controller this product has quickly received widespread attention from the industry and is currently receiving development demands from a number of OEMs.
SILVER BASIS will continue to uphold the corporate values of win-win with customers and continuous innovation and is committed to creating more value for customers by providing one-stop services and solutions for structural designs, electronic hardware, software design, tooling design, manufacturing, product manufacturing, etc. Through the continuous research and development of the IME process, we will continue to lead the market and help the new energy vehicle industry with innovation!
