Swissbit AG announces the official opening of its new state-of-the-art electronics production facility in Berlin, Germany. Swissbit has been manufacturing in Germany since 2002. Now, the company has further strengthened its long-term commitment to Berlin as a manufacturing base and has tripled its production capacity for highly integrated electronics. New technology trends, such as growing digitalization and increased networking of devices in the Internet of Things, are driving the demand for memory and embedded IoT solutions.
Taking just over a year to construct, the factory has been in operation since October 2019 with complex precision manufacturing of the latest memory and security modules for industrial use. The plant boasts almost 2,600m2 of dedicated production floorspace. Swissbit is ideally positioned for growth markets, supplying the latest generation flash memory solutions and innovative security products for embedded IoT applications, including memory modules with integrated chips for authentication and data encryption. Digitalization will increase the demand for industrial memory products for industrial, Netcom, automotive (for example autonomous driving) and medical applications. Furthermore, increased networking of devices in the Internet of Things is seeing a dramatic rise in the requirements for the protection of data and devices and thus the demand for smart security products for embedded IoT solutions. Counterfeit protection for cash registers, which will be mandatory in Germany from 2020, is one of the application areas of the new Swissbit solution.
