Semitrex Opens Two New Semiconductor Design Centers

Power Conversion Innovator Expands Global Presence, Furthers Mission to Halt Unnecessary Energy Waste

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 9, 2016) - Looking to better tackle the worldwide energy crisis, power semiconductor solutions company Semitrex today announced the establishment of two new design centers: a power design center in Irvine, California and a mixed-signal design center in Milan, Italy. These two new facilities enable Semitrex to expand its global presence and build its technical design team to meet the demand for its award-winning, energy-efficient power supply technologies. The announcement of the new design centers comes on the heels of Semitrex opening a Silicon Valley office and establishing an International Technical Advisory Board.

Dedicated to the digital design of Semitrex's TRONIUM® Power Supply System(s) on a Chip® (PSSoC®) products, the new mixed-signal/analog integrated circuit (IC) design centers are equipped with labs featuring state-of-the-art technologies. The centers will be the key drivers of the company's global product roadmap, spearheading the creation of next-generation power conversion products to meet the power demands of the future.

Strategically located in Irvine's 'Technology Corridor,' the new Southern California power design center allows the company to expand its presence in the region and tap into the area's skilled engineering resources. Semitrex's design team works with highly advanced power conversion technologies, which provide a total solution breakthrough that brings both energy and design efficiencies to all manner of end markets and equipment. The focus of the center will be the analog side of the digitally controlled switched-capacitor AC-DC/DC-DC converters, which boost efficiency in power supplies.

The opening of the new European mixed-signal design center in Milan underscores the company's commitment to solving the problem of energy waste worldwide -- and builds on its efforts to help solve Europe's $15 billion per year vampire load crisis. Mixed-signal analog chips, which include digital power control designs, will be the focus of the European design center.

According to Michael H. Freeman, J.D., Semitrex CEO/CTO, "With energy consumption at an all-time high and the emergence of new standards for energy efficiency, it's crucial that our customers have access to cutting-edge technologies and products to tackle these challenges. Our TRONIUM suite of innovative power management solutions eliminates energy waste today, while also targeting the higher efficiency power demands of the futures. The new design centers position us to shape our game-changing technologies into global solutions."

The first comprehensive power conversion breakthrough in decades, Semitrex's core technology improves the way that power conversions are made to significantly increase power efficiency and reduce grid stress. All told, more than three billion devices can benefit from the energy efficiencies Semitrex provides.

Earlier this month, the global Semitrex engineering team converged in Irvine when Freeman hosted a quarterly meeting at the new power design center. "Increased efficiency requirements for power supplies brought on by global government regulation is top of mind for our team," he added. "Bringing together this select group of industry experts underscores Semitrex's commitment to addressing this issue."
