Bosch is expanding its team of experts in the “System on chip” (SoC). SoC is a unique semiconductor increasingly used in control units for the automotive industry. With the acquisition of Semiconductor Ideas to the Market (ItoM), headquartered in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, the technology group aims to strengthen its development expertise for high-frequency processing SoC.
ItoM will continue to operate as a separate legal entity for the time being. In the near future, it will be merged with the Automotive Electronics branch of Robert Bosch GmbH. Bosch welcomes all employees from ItoM development sites in Eindhoven and Enschede in the Netherlands.
