Silicon Labs (NASDAQ: SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, today celebrates the ten-year anniversary of Silicon Laboratories International Pte. Ltd. in Singapore. Serving as the company’s international headquarters for the Asia-Pacific and Europe regions, the Silicon Labs International operation performs a wide range of manufacturing and business-critical functions including global supply chain management, integrated circuit research and development, international finance, product testing, order fulfillment, and international sales and support.
Silicon Labs International opened in Singapore in 2004, eight years after Silicon Labs was founded and four years after the company went public. In 2008, Silicon Labs International moved to its current location at 6 Serangoon North Avenue 5 in Singapore to provide ample space for expanding its operations and employee base. Over the years, Silicon Labs International has grown to more than 150 employees, making it the largest Silicon Labs site outside of the company’s corporate headquarters in Austin, Texas (USA). The facility features nearly 40,000 square feet of office space and engineering labs including a test floor and a logistics hub.
Silicon Labs International is strategic to Silicon Labs’ competitiveness and success in the global semiconductor industry and the rapidly growing Internet of Things (IoT) market. A centerpiece of the Singapore operation is an advanced mixed-signal IC design center where the company’s circuit design and applications engineering teams are developing the next generation of energy-friendly 8-bit and ARM®-based 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs) for a wide array of IoT applications including smart home, security, wearable, smart energy and industrial designs.
The Silicon Labs International operations team manages all phases of the company’s global manufacturing and order fulfillment capabilities, ranging from fab to final test. As a fabless semiconductor supplier, Silicon Labs outsources manufacturing to a number of wafer foundries primarily in Asia and works closely with leading assembly and test suppliers in the region.
Silicon Labs International’s streamlined supply-chain management processes are critical to reducing product lead times and accelerating time-to-market for customers around the world. Augmenting the capabilities of Silicon Labs’ outsourced test suppliers, the operation’s Singapore Test Center uses state-of-the-art equipment to test Silicon Labs’ Broad-based products ranging from mixed-signal MCUs to quartz- and CMEMS®-based oscillators.
Silicon Labs’ Singapore operation also houses international finance, sales and customer support, human resources and information technology (IT) teams.
“Singapore is proud to be Silicon Labs International’s home over the last 10 years,” said Terence Gan, director for electronics, Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). “Silicon Labs International has been one of the fastest growing, most important members of Singapore’s semiconductor industry. We are committed to continuing our symbiotic relationship and creating many good job opportunities in business and engineering.”
“Silicon Labs International’s 10-year anniversary is a proud milestone in our company’s history and an exciting success story highlighting Silicon Labs’ expansion and steady growth in Singapore,” said Jennifer Teong, vice president of manufacturing and general manager of Silicon Labs International. “Silicon Labs is growing and thriving in the vibrant Singapore economy, and we look forward to many more anniversaries to come.”

With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, will discuss some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and relate how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material will be delivered i...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
