Participate in the ZVEI Benchmark on IC Development for Automotive Applications

To improve the productivity in automotive semi-conductor IC development projects, several European semi-conductor suppliers under the head of the ZVEI decided to define and to run a regular benchmark since 2006. The objective is to see the own projects’ productivity in comparison to the productivity of anonymous projects from other semi-conductor suppliers in the automotive sector. This benchmark is done to get better insight in the strengths and weaknesses of own projects. Compliance to legal aspects is given. Further information is available in a white paper at the ZVEI website. The edacentrum as supporting partner in this effort, invites further semi-conductor suppliers in the automotive sector to participate. Contact: Andreas Vörg (voergatedacentrum [dot] de)
