Robert Bosch Corp. Forms New North American Subsidiary

    BROADVIEW, Ill., May 6 -- Robert Bosch Corp. today announced
it has established ETAS, Inc., a newly formed North American subsidiary
located in Ann Arbor, Mich.  ETAS, Inc. will supply Engineering Tools &
Application Services for automotive embedded control systems, such as engine
control modules and antilock brake system controllers, based on hardware and
software products developed by ETAS GmbH, located near Stuttgart, Germany.
    Manfred W. Schon, most recently marketing manager of DSP Technology, Inc.,
Ann Arbor, Mich., was appointed president of ETAS, Inc.  Prior to that, Schon

    ETAS products and services cover the complete development process for
automotive embedded control systems.  The company's Advanced Simulation and
Control Engineering (ASCET-SD) tool supports every step of the software
development process with a new approach to modeling, code generation and
simulation, thus making higher quality, shorter innovation cycles and cost
reduction a reality.
    Once the software functionality has been developed, the ETAS
hardware-in-the-loop test system, LabCar, can simulate the complete vehicle or
its components in real-time and test the connected embedded control system.
    To complete the chain of tools, ETAS supports the in-vehicle data
acquisition and calibration process with its Integrated Calibration and
Application Tool (INCA), a modular hardware and software package which can be
configured to address various customer requirements.

Bosch GmbH, and employs approximately 140 people.
