Microchip Technology has opened a new design centre in Bucharest, Romania. The new centre will be inaugurated on 17th April by Microchip's Chief Executive Officer, Steve Sanghi, and Microchip has initially recruited 15 staffers, with a total of 30 jobs planned by the end of 2008 and 100 over the next four years.
The new centre forms part of Microchip's worldwide network of design centres located in India, Switzerland, California and Arizona (USA).
It will play a pivotal role in enhancing Microchip's existing product portfolio, and in developing technologies that continue to set new benchmarks for price, performance and ease of integration.
'Bucharest was chosen as the location for Microchip's newest design centre because it takes us closer to our customers who are increasingly turning to Eastern Europe for design and manufacture'.
'It is only by working closely with our customers that we can understand the challenges they face and ensure that we are developing the right products for them', explained Rich Simoncic, Vice President of Microchip's Analog and Interface Products Division.
