About the Customer
Samsung SDI is headquartered in South Korea, as a global market leader in the high technology and environmental battery industry. Samsung SDI has a 40-year history, spanning from vacuum tubes, to large plasma display panels (PDPs), to high-tech cathode ray tubes (CRTs) and digital displays.
Today, Samsung SDI is a top player as an energy and materials provider of rechargeable batteries for the IT, automotive, energy storage systems (ESS), and electronic material industries.
When Samsung SDI transitioned to the electronic materials business, several challenges surfaced that needed to be addressed. The company had to move from digital display control circuits to battery control circuits, requiring a different approach to new electronic designs and related printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing technologies.
A strong solution for PCB design review, and verification was needed for existing and new products. Also, after acquiring a key player in the automotive battery pack business, Samsung SDI needed a solution that could setup and deploy PCB design review and verification where the design rules and user environment were centrally managed.
