Panasonic expanding Singapore IC design efforts

April 11, 2006 – Panasonic Semiconductor Asia plans to invest about $6.2 million to expand its Singapore-based development center to over 300 workers within the next five years, from current headcount of 80.

Panasonic Semiconductor Development Center of Asia (PSDA), will focus on developing mixed-signal LSI and power-management LSI technologies, for end use in consumer electronics devices such as mobile phones, digital TVs, and digital cameras.

Established in 1988, PSDC is the company’s only regional IC design center outside Japan and the US. Earlier this year Panasonic began groundbreaking on a $92 million semiconductor assembly and test facility here.
