Always being one step ahead and proactively driving development is our premise.
We love our area of expertise, and we love challenges. At PLC2, we tackle things head-on, strive to understand complex contexts, and find efficient solutions to problems. We not only want to harness our many years of experience and detailed knowledge in the field of programmable logic for ourselves, but also make it accessible to all those in our professional environment who are as enthusiastic about these technologies as we are.
As a pioneer in the field of programmable logic, we have been able to gather extensive knowledge and valuable experience over many years. Founded nearly 30 years ago as a family business and still owner-managed today, PLC2 is firmly established in the market as the world leader in high-speed embedded engineering with FPGAs. As a premium partner of AMD, we demonstrate in-depth expertise and have direct access to the latest technologies and knowledge in the field of FPGA.

Where We Come From
For almost 30 years on the market, renowned and appreciated in the scene, completely unknown outside the scene: this is PLC2 – Programmable Logic Competence Center. PLC2 stands for training, design services and products relating to FPGAs and embedded systems.
As the exclusive training partner of AMD, it all began in 1995 when Eugen Krassin became the first worldwide ATP (Authorized Training Provider) of Xilinx in the training area. He provided high quality training with technical depth to train engineers from other companies. What started small has grown a lot over the years. Meanwhile, more than 800 companies belong to the customer base and around 3,000 engineers from all markets are trained annually. Due to the exclusive training program, PLC2 is currently one of the world’s largest and best training centers of AMD.
But PLC2 has also evolved in other areas over the course of history: the generation change has taken place and the next generation has taken over the management in 2015. Since 2022, PLC2 has officially become AMD Premier Design Partner and with ETAS, a subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH, a heavyweight in the automotive sector has joined the company.
The third pillar of the company is the product development in our own development department. Our products are mainly used in the automotive, robotics and data center markets. To ensure the global distribution of these products in the automotive sector, PLC2 entered into a partnership with ETAS, a 100% Bosch subsidiary, in March 2022. ETAS is now the exclusive distributor of PLC2 products for the automotive market.
