OC Companies Well Represented at CES

OC companies ranging from chipmaker and software firm Syntiant Corp. to gamer supplier Razer presented their latest innovations at the giant Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this month in Las Vegas.

Here are a few brief highlights from a sample of local firms:


The artificial intelligence-focused company added real-time monitoring of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to its popular detection system for the sound of breaking window glass. Syntiant has also developed and trained specialized edge AI models that enhance vehicle safety and security, from red light and green light detection to tailgating detection.

“We have more than 30 customers in production today. We expect to double that number by the end of this year,” co-founder and CEO Kurt Busch told the Business Journal earlier this month.

Busch said the company’s acceleration of its “edge”-focused large language models—which give AI an even greater role people’s daily lives—widen the market for the Irvine-based company.

“Syntiant has a significant market presence with more than 50 million devices deployed using our technology,” according to Busch.


Chipmaker Skyworks Solutions Inc. (Nasdaq: SWKS), headquartered in Irvine, demonstrated its latest products supporting automotive and smart city utility applications at CES.

On the automotive front, Skyworks, valued around $16.2 billion, showcased a new system enabling direct communication between vehicles and their surroundings for the cellular vehicle-to-everything standard.


Video game products maker Razer, headquartered in Irvine and Singapore, showed off its “Sensa HD Haptics,” the new Blade gaming laptops as well as the Iskur V2 gamer chair among other products at CES.


Fountain Valley-based gaming products company HyperX launched several new products. They include Cloud Mini headsets, available in both wired and wireless and tailored for younger gaming enthusiasts. HyperX also introduced its first “hot-swappable” keyboard with a variety of personalization options.

Telit Cinterion

Irvine-based Internet of Things firm Telit Cinterion presented a new partnership ensuring that mobile assets—shipping containers, agricultural equipment, trucks, and other high-value assets—are continually trackable and monitored anywhere on earth, from cities and rural highways to deserts and oceans.


Supernal, Hyundai Motor Group’s Advanced Air Mobility company that has its engineering base in Irvine, unveiled the S-A2, its electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicle product concept.

The pilot-plus-four-passenger vehicle “marks the latest milestone in Supernal’s roadmap to commercialize safe, efficient and affordable everyday passenger air travel,” the company said.

S-A2 is a “V-tail aircraft designed to cruise 120 miles-per-hour at a 1,500-foot altitude to meet typical city operation needs of 25- to 40-mile trips, initially,” it said.
