ROHM established software development center in Finland
Kyoto, Japan – ROHM Group Company Kionix, a leading MEMS manufacturer, has announced the opening of a new software development center in Oulu, Finland, to reinforce its design and software development resources and provide additional support for the sensing solution sector, which is expected to be a key area of growth.
The ROHM Group takes advantage of technology and development synergy by combining ROHM's broad sensor IC lineup with LAPIS Semiconductor's market-leading low-power MCUs and Kionix's MEMS technologies and sensor fusion software to provide complete, all-in-one sensor solutions tailored to customer needs.
"As the ROHM Group Companies (ROHM, Kionix and LAPIS Semiconductor) work together in broadening what is already a prominent sensor portfolio, we saw the formation of this R&D center not only as a synergetic initiative, but an opportunity to take advantage of the existing engineering talent in the area," said Nader Sadrzadeh, President & CEO of Kionix. "The contribution from this team will augment our existing R&D centers and further propel our company as a global leader in sensors and sensing solutions."
