LONDON Analog IC developer Austriamicrosystems has opened its fourth international design center. The design center in Pavia, a region with a history of analog expertise, will focus entirely on expanding Austriamicrosystems' range of standard linear products.
The company's devices are used in industrial, medical, communications, and automotive applications, and the design center will focus on interface ICs, converters, regulators, amplifiers, and supervisory ICs.
The design center will also cooperate with the University of Pavia where Professor of Microelectronics Franco Maloberti heads up the Pavia Integrated Micro Systems Group. Maloberti believes the design center will create new and exciting opportunities for researchers and students
The Pavia team will complement Austriamicrosysems' existing design center in Pisa and form a base for further enlargement of this location.
