What does SEDEMAC do?

SEDEMAC's Smart Ignition solution for small, spark ignited engines utilizes an algorithm to estimate loads in real-time thereby providing significant flexibility in the choice of the appropriate spark timing. The company recently developed the sensorless Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) solution that has potential applicability on all small engines produced in the world due to its unique ability to use a standard crankshaft mounted alternator as a highly reliable starter.
