Melecs among the Top 10 most innovative patent applicants in Austria for 2014  

Melecs, Austria's largest independent electronics manufacturing service provider (EMS), is among the Top 10 for the INVENTUM Award, given to most innovative Austrian patents for 2014. Melecs was able to impress with the design of its automotive ECU (Electronic Control Unit) for this annual award presented by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Patent Office.

Melecs EWS, developer and manufacturer of electronic products and headquartered in Siegendorf, Austria, finished among the Top 10 for the INVENTUM Award. The Award is presented annually by the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Patent Office to the most innovative Austrian patents. Melecs was able to impress with the design of its automotive all-wheel drive ECU which replaces the aluminum housing with a special plastic material. A special layer stack was developed in order to cool the power modules. The circuit board is fitted with silicone springs in order to ensure consistent thermal transfer to the exterior. Devices using this design are lighter, significantly less complex and less expensive to manufacture. Savings of up to 30% have been accomplished. The three developers leading these efforts at Melecs, Gerald Vogt‚ Leopold Hellinger and Gerhard Neumann, personally accepted the INVENTUM Award.

From newcomer to market leader in the all-wheel drive ECU segment thanks to innovation

Melecs emerged in 2009 from a management buyout of a unit of Siemens Austria. Melecs was able to move from newcomer in the automotive sector to market leader for all-wheel drive ECU’s thanks to concentrated innovative energy and a massive expansion of its R&D department from 5 to 50 employees among other measures. The now award-winning performance of the all-wheel drive ECU at its first key customer resulted in numerous follow-up orders from Europe and the USA for premium automotive manufacturers such as Mercedes, Porsche, Jaguar-Landrover, BMW, Audi, Volvo, GM and many more.
