Yokohama, Japan, 2 November – Zuken Inc. is proud to announce that Panasonic Corporation has ordered the Zuken CR-8000 series of solutions for leading-edge electronic designs and DS-CR design data management systems for its Imaging Business Unit sites under the Entertainment and Communication Business Division in Japan and China (Xiamen). The contract is equivalent to roughly 150 million yen.

Standardizing our electronic components and more widely sharing designs is an extremely important challenge at Panasonic because we develop such a wide range of products.

Tatsuo Ogawa Executive Officer and Group Chief Technology Officer of Panasonic

Panasonic has been working with Zuken, Inc. to configure a data management system for electronic components that enables sharing and use throughout the entire company. The Imaging Business Unit’s complete migration to Zuken solutions from a third-party design environment for printed circuit boards will accelerate the circulation of component information and product development data across product and business segments at Panasonic. This migration is expected to usher in broader sharing of CAD libraries, electronic components, and technology.

Tatsuo Ogawa, Executive Officer and Group Chief Technology Officer of Panasonic, described why the Imaging Business Unit decided to migrate to Zuken solutions by saying, “The evolution of electronic components is remarkable. We must quickly replace old parts with new components. Standardizing our electronic components and more widely sharing designs is an extremely important challenge at Panasonic because we develop such a wide range of products.”

Jinya Katsube, President and COO of Zuken, Inc., added, “Panasonic uses Zuken solutions across all of its product lines. We will strive to become a partner who will contribute more largely to Panasonic’s product development beyond the boundaries of its product lines.”
