Allegro MicroSystems of Manchester has established a new research and development center in the Czech Republic. This new center is currently staffed with two dozen engineers located in Prague. According to a statement, the engineers will accelerate Allegro's development of market leading, innovative ICs (integrated circuits) for both the automotive and industrial markets. The team will initially focus on developing sensor ICs for electrified vehicles, green energy, 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," says Michael Doogue, VP 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," Doogue says.
