tigo flyerImproves production, management and safety of a photovoltaic installation at a low cost
Peak efficiency ratings of up to 99.5%

The Optimizers Market, as well as the Micro Inverter market, has experienced a significant growth in recent years, and forecasts for future years are promising.

Tigo and its principal competitor SolarEdge dominate the market of solar power optimizers whose main function is to improve the energy harvest from photovoltaic panels. Tigo Energy offers an innovative solution, the Dual Maximizer, using a patented impedance-matching technology.

Working with a complementary Management Unit, the Dual Maximizer can be connected to one or two PV modules and is expected to reach a record peak efficiency of 99.5%. An integrated Zigbee Module is used for wireless communication with the Management Unit.

Based on a complete teardown analysis, the reverse costing report of the TIGO MM-2ES 50 Dual Maximizer published by System Plus Consulting provides the bill-of-material of the product and an estimation of the production cost of the maximizer.

Across the Enterprise, from marketing to purchasing and R&D, product manufacturing cost is a major factor which has to be measured and then optimized. Since 1993, System Plus Consulting’s mission has been to develop and sell the right tools and services to meet these costing requirements.

System Plus Consulting utilizes an engineering approach to cost. Cost models and technology expertise are combined to provide customers with an accurate and objective estimation of manufacturing costs and selling prices.

Headquartered in Nantes, France, System Plus Consulting is specialized in technology and cost analysis of electronic components and systems. During our 20 years in business, we have built and refined detailed cost models as the primary tools for hundreds of analyses. The highly qualified System Plus cost engineers combine broad and deep skills in semiconductor and electronics technologies with years of experience in cost modeling.

We offer:
− Custom reverse costing analyses: technology analysis followed by cost evaluation
− Standard reverse costing reports: regular publications on innovative products (available from our catalogue)
− Costing tools: software tools combining models and data to perform cost analysis

System Plus Consulting analyzes any type of electronic devices and systems, with a special focus on semiconductor technologies. Major fields of technology and cost expertise are:
− Integrated Circuits
− Power Devices and Modules
− MEMS & Sensors
− Photonics: LED, Image Sensors
− Packaging including wafer level
− Electronic Boards and Systems

Our analyses are used by Purchasing Departments to measure their suppliers’ cost structure, R&D Departments to confirm technological choices depending on their impact on costs, and Benchmarking/Marketing Departments to monitor the products on the market.

System Plus Consulting is committed to provide a high level of service:
− Delivery of reports and custom analyses with a minimum lead time.
− Results presentation and online Q&A sessions when support is needed.
