Allegro MicroSystems, a major supplier of high performance power and sensor semiconductor ICs, has established a new research and development center in the Czech Republic.
The new center is located in Prague and it has around two dozen engineers. The staff is set to accelerate the development of market leading, innovative ICs for both the automotive and industrial markets. The company will initially focus on producing sensor ICs for green energy, electric vehicles and high efficiency industrial motor applications.
“We are very excited to formally open our new R&D center in Prague. We were fortunate to hire an excellent team of engineers. This high performing team is already accelerating Allegro’s leadership position in both the automotive and industrial markets,” said Michael Doogue, Vice President of Business Development and Advanced Sensor Technologies at Allegro MicroSystems.
“We plan to hire an additional 20 to 30 engineers at the center over the next few years. The Prague team is an important addition to Allegro’s global product development team, and I am certain that they will have a positive impact on Allegro’s product development velocity and our customer support levels for many years to come”, Michael added.
The major contribution to Allegro’s decision to open this new R&D center was the availability of highly skilled IC design, systems, and software engineers.
Allegro’s new location in Prague also offers a contemporary work environment, excellent amenities, a beautiful view of the city, walking and running trails and a full-service café.
