With shrinking margins in the board and module market, companies are merging to acquire proficiency in areas like software and networking. That’s precisely the driver behind the Kontron and S&T Deutschland Holding AG merger announced last month.
This week, the Embedded Insiders chat with Kevin Rhoads, General Manager at Kontron Americas to find out more about what S&T and Kontron stand to gain from each other. They learn S&T’s software and middleware solutions complement Kontron’s hardware offerings, especially as it relates to connecting edge-based hardware to the cloud, and speculate that having Hannes Neiderhauser, current CEO of S&T and former CEO of Kontron, on board will mean a smooth integration process for the two companies.
