onsemi, a leader in intelligent power and sensing technologies, has opened a new design centre for state-of-the-art semiconductor chips in Bucharest, Romania. The technologies developed at the 3000m2 of new office space and hi-tech laboratories are intended for high temperature and high endurance use, isolated drivers for automotive applications and high precision parts for intelligent sensing.
The facility encompasses the entire new-product development cycle, covering a wide range of activities such as integrated circuits design, layout, test development, applications, technology development, project management and product marketing. Acquired by onsemi in 2008, the team in Romania has continued to grow, surpassing 100 employees, while adopting new technologies for best-in-class semiconductor development.
“Having the entire development cycle in one place enables closer collaboration that speeds up the process from innovative idea and development to delivery to the customer,” said Brian Pickard, vice president, Power Solutions Group at onsemi. “The new design center also offers more career opportunities for our exceptional team in Romania while attracting new talent that are eager to drive technology breakthroughs for a sustainable future.”
