Würth Elektronik opens Electronic Design & Application Center in Munich, Germany

One and a half years after opening the Innovation Office in Aschheim close to Munich, Würth Elektronik eiSos is expanding the Munich location and moving into the Garching Business Campus. Würth Elektronik eiSos with the Wurth Electronics Midcom subsidiary officially opened its local Design & Application Center in Munich Garching on 09.09.2013.

The Design Center offers the engineers from various nations and specialist fields who work there space for ideas to develop new passive and active components and gives Sales direct access to customers and IC manufacturers located in the Munich area.

The move to the office which covers 1000m² has been designed with 50 work stations. The office is home to laboratory, offices for research and development engineers, Sales and multimedia facilities; it offers enough space for dynamic growth.

The focus areas are both Wireless Power Transfer and Energy Harvesting applications as well as developing the new MagI³C Power Modules. In addition the first customer-specific passive components will be developed by Wurth Electronics Midcom at the new location. The aim is to establish a development team for customer-specific transformers for customers from the EMEA area. Additional specialists - including from other countries - are being recruited for the location.

"The racing growth in employees and projects that we have been able to acquire here within a very short space of time, confirms Munich as the location," commented site managers Fabian Kuttenkeuler and Oliver Opitz.

Würth Elektronik sees the concentration of electronic engineers, IC manufacturers and customers in the immediate vicinity as a catalyst for innovative development and quick response times.
