Micronas Accelerates Product Development For All Major Automotive Electronics Customers Worldwide
Micronas, a TDK group company that develops and manufactures semiconductor-based sensor and IC system solutions for automotive and industrial electronics, is using OpenText Connectivity Solutions to cut time to market, protect proprietary information and centralize data operations for more rapid execution of research and development.
Micronas designs and manufactures semiconductor-based sensors for all major automotive electronics customers worldwide. The company has its operational headquarters in Freiburg, Germany, with part of its Research & Development (R&D) team located in Munich, and currently employs approximately 900 people.
The process of designing integrated circuits has exacting computing demands and requires powerful software, including graphically-intensive interactive layout tools. This makes it necessary for Micronas to provide its engineers with the necessary processing power and the fastest possible data access, making it a challenge to serve a distributed R&D team. To help address these challenges, Micronas selected OpenText Exceed™ TurboX to centralize data handling for its engineers. Exceed™ TurboX provides server-side application execution and front-end rendering, delivered over a network connection, removing the dependency on costly local data centers to ensure the necessary power and speed for the engineering process.
Deploying OpenText Connectivity Solutions has improved performance, simplified administration and improved collaboration, and has enabled Micronas designers and layout specialists to work remotely. This removes the requirement for complex server environments in small offices and allows Micronas to widen its talent pool.
