Global Unichip Corp. (GUC), the Flexible ASIC Leader™ expanded its global presences with the opening of a new Design Center on November 1st in Yokohama, Japan.
The new center will be staffed by a team of senior engineers who will provide real-time technical support and local services to the company's Japan based customers. The team will also provide engineering support for a number of GUC's worldwide projects.
"Japan has been an extremely important contributor to semiconductor innovation and it is imperative that GUC provides a strategic, responsive local support," said GUC President Jim Lai.
While working on a wide variety of design projects, much of the center's work will focus on communication, computing and consumer electronics challenges, primarily working to maximize the benefits of advanced manufacturing process technologies.
"Our participation in projects and revenue contribution from Japan have steadily grown over the last couple of years. Much of this is due to tight relationship GUC has with TSMC as their Value Chain Aggregator partner. Installing a dedicated design center in Japan is the next logical step to help Japan companies leverage that relationship to their benefit," explains Muneyoshi Nakayama, Representative Director of GUC Japan.
