Distribution of semiconductor solutions
Elmos Semiconductor SE and Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH have agreed on a cooperation for the distribution of semiconductor solutions. The partnership opens up new potentials for both partners and strengthens their respective, worldwide market position. The franchise applies to Europe including Russia and Turkey as well as Africa, and in the next step, from June 2021 on, also to North, Central and South America.
The dynamic automotive market relies on innovative solutions that enable the increasingly complex systems to function efficiently and reliably. With ASSPs (application-specific standard products) Elmos is already the worldwide no. 1 in growth segments of automotive electronics, for example in ultrasonic distance measurement, gesture control and ambient lighting in the vehicle interior.
Rutronik‘s very good sales network and comprehensive expertise in automotive electronics form a promising starting point for the acquisition of new projects. The use of ASSPs with a large number of functions on just one chip also offers promising market opportunities in applications.
