Back the the future with the Kontron/S&T merger

July 28, 2017 Rich Nass, Embedded Computing Brand Director, and Brandon Lewis, Technology Editor

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.
