Wolfson opens development centre in Japan
Wolfson Microelectronics has opened a semiconductor development centre in Yokohama, Japan, staffed by a team of mixed-signal engineers.
Wolfson CEO Mike Hickey said: “The new Development Centre presents an excellent opportunity to affirm our presence in Japan and ensure our proximity to new and existing Japanese customers.
“Japan is at the forefront of a wide range of consumer electronics technologies, including printers, digital still cameras, mobile phones and gaming consoles. With our recently-recruited team of engineers, we will strengthen relationships with our customers in Japan, designing and developing solutions which will help them continue to create revolutionary consumer electronics products.”
The Development Centre is located within Wolfson’s Yokohama facility, and sits beside the existing sales organisation in Japan.
Hickey hosted a traditional sake-barrel opening ceremony at the British Embassy in Tokyo on the 5 November.
