SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - eSilicon Corporation, the largest independent semiconductor value chain producer (VCP), today announced that eSilicon has expanded its TSMC Value Chain Aggregator (VCA) program membership to include Korea. eSilicon is already a VCA member of TSMC's North American, China, European and Israel customer regions.

eSilicon's track record of delivering high-performance, high-complexity, first-time-right ASICs has made it a trusted supplier to both system OEMs and fabless semiconductor companies around the world. eSilicon's approach to customer service is to develop high-quality regional engineering and operations centers close to each customer base. To grow its customer base in Asia, eSilicon began investing there in 2008 with the establishment of its Shanghai operations followed by two engineering centers in Vietnam and now plans to open an engineering center in Korea.

With a 200-person strong Asia-based engineering and operations team, best-in-class design and manufacturing methodology, custom IP offering and license rights to Avago Technologies' high-performance SerDes IP bundle, eSilicon is uniquely qualified to service the semiconductor needs of Korea-based system OEMs in the networking, telecom, consumer and other related markets.
