CSR opens development centre in Ingolstadt, Germany
CSR plc announced the opening of the CSR Automotive Systems Development and Applications Centre in Ingolstadt, Southern Germany. CSR acquired the facility, which was built by TEMIC Telefunken Hochfrequenztechnik GmbH, a provider of RF system solutions for infotainment and consumer products, as part of its merger with Zoran Corporation last year. Close to major German automotive OEMs and Tier One suppliers, the Ingolstadt facility is also only a short distance from CSR customers in automotive centres throughout Europe.
“The Ingolstadt Automotive Centre has been specifically designed, built and staffed with very experienced engineers targeting the automotive market,” said Charlie Lesko, Senior Vice President for CSR’s Automotive Business Group. “The facility and staff will enable us to offer local support as well as unique services to our automotive customers in Europe.”
The RF hardware and software engineering team based at the new facility will allow CSR to continue to expand support and access for German and European customers to the entire CSR automotive product portfolio including location, connectivity and infotainment SoC solutions.
The facility will be the in-vehicle test and validation centre for all CSR automotive technologies, ensuring the company’s automotive customers get the best possible performance from our connectivity, location and SoC technologies.
“I am delighted to join CSR’s Automotive Business Group and for our facility to be at the centre of our new growth strategy in this exciting space,” said Andreas Hennig, site manager for CSR’s new facility. “The Ingolstadt team is fully committed to deploying our extensive skills and automotive experience to further build on CSR’s success in the automotive sector.”
