and accessories - are manufactured by Nursan. It is

a flexible company that can cope with any changes

in orders from their customers in order to satisfy them

completely," state company representatives.

SE Bordnetze

SE Bordnetze - Bulgaria is a parts supplier for the

international automotive industry. The company has

two locations in Bulgaria, in Mezdra and in Karnobat,

where it produces wire harnesses for a variety of auto-

mobile platforms. Major customers of SE Bordnetze

are Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, and Skoda.

The company was originally founded in 2002 as a

logistics center of Volkswagen Elektrik Sistemleri

A.S. - Cerkezkoy, Turkey in Kazanlak. In 2004 it

expanded and moved to its own site in Karnobat

and shortly after became a sub supplier of VW TR.

Following the deal between Volkswagen AG and

Siemens AG within which Volkswagen Bordnetze

GmbH was sold to Sumitomo Corporation back, in

2006 the company became autonomous. Since

then it has been operating under the new name SE

Bordnetze - Bulgaria.

During 2008 the company expanded further and

founded its second plant in Bulgaria, located in the

town of Mezdra. Currently, SE Bordnetze has a

third location in the country, in Sliven, but it is owned

by its subcontractor Ates.

"Using the term "Bordnetz" we are talking about

the complete cross-linking of electric and electronic

components in one car which are used for the trans-

mission of electrical power and signals. The wire har-

ness itself could be visual seen as the "electric veins"

of a vehicle. Without these features, safety systems

like ABS, ESP, Airbag or user-friendly features like

seat heating, electric window lift or climate control

unit wouldn't work," states the company website.

Tremol SMD

Tremol SMD was established in the city of Veliko

Tarnovo, Bulgaria, in April 2006. The Bulgarian con-

tract electronicmanufacturer is a part of Tremol Group

Bulgaria and currently employs more than 240 peo-

ple. The total number of highly educated employees in

the group is more than 400, all of which have the po-

tential for R&D activities, electronic design, software

and firmware design, moulds and plastic parts design,

plastic injection, mechanical parts design, etc.

The company produces electronic modules in its

7000 sq. mproduction site, with a 1000 sq. madminis-

tration and engineering site and an additional PTH

manual assembly division in the town of Svishtov.

Tremol SMD operates three SMD lines with overall

IPC production speed of almost 400 000 components

per hour. Its production also comprises a flying probe

ICT, a lead-free and leaded process lines for wave

soldering, automatic optical inspection (AOI) ma-

chines, a conformal coating process unit and a 70 op-

erators division for manual and box-build assemblies.

IDT Automotive Solutions

IDT is a global provider of high-performance, en-

ergy-efficient analog and mixed-signal semiconduc-

tors and application-specific ICs. The company was

established in 1980 in San Jose, California.

At the end of 2015, IDT completed the acquisition of

ZMDI, which brought the company a highly regarded

automotive and industrial business, as well as high-per-

formanceprogrammablepowerdevicesandsignalcon-

ditioning solutions. IDT's design centre in Bulgaria, IDT

Bulgaria Ltd. - former ZMDEasternEurope, was estab-

lished in 2008 for the design, marketing and sales of

ASICs and ASSP, as well as all related activities.

Besides ASICdesign services for TR1 and TR2 cus-

tomers, theAutomotive and Industrial Division (AID) of

IDT offers a wide range of standard products. The

most extended range is their sensor signal condition-

ers (SSC) range - chipswhich provide lownoise trans-

formation and calibration of the analog parameters like

temperature, pressure, voltage to digital signal.

Besides this, the universal driver chip for exterior mir-

ror is the smallest footprint chip in the world with a 6A

driving capability. This unique chip ismanaging all func-

tions of the modern exterior mirror: folding, bending,

heating, electrochromatic, blind spot detection and LED

driving. With ARM M0 and the extended application

package it decreases the prototyping cycle of the cus-

tomer and minimizes the BOM. IDT's battery manage-

ment product allows control of the lead battery charge

and is part of start-stop systems of the new cars.

Recently, IDT has started offering wireless charg-

ers for cars of 15W and PMIC (power management

chip) for Infotainment systems. The ISO26262

compliance ensures reliability and a lifetime guar-

antee, as well as decreases the time to market.

IDT Bulgaria currently employs 70 in its two loca-

tions - Varna and Sofia - covering all steps in the

process frommarketing to delivery of characterized

prototypes. The capabilities of the application team

are extended with EMC characterization laboratory

and mechanical lab with 3D printer offering quick

and reliable prototyping of the final product.
