Discera, Inc., the premier provider of CMOS semiconductor-based oscillator technology, announced the official opening of its China Applications Center in the Shenzhen International Chamber of Commerce Tower on Fuhua 3rd Road, Futian District.
As the heart of the company’s permanent investment plan in China, the new office features engineers, equipment, and researchers to support sophisticated chip and module integration, high definition and 3D video technology, and radio frequency and smart grid design.
By centralizing multiple locations into a single facility less than 1.5 km from the Jiuce Science & Technology Park and 0.5 km from the Shenzhen Golf Club, Discera has achieved a balance between the needs of research & development, customers, and business partners throughout the region.
Chief Technology Officer Dr. Wan-Thai Hsu and Vice President of Worldwide Sales Dr. Kent Chon hosted the opening of the Discera, Inc. China Applications Center. “By sharing our expertise in semiconductor timing, power reduction, and MEMS technology and sponsoring local research and development, Discera is helping Chinese businesses compete and win in the global marketplace,” said Dr. Hsu. “Discera leads with service and wins with reliability. Our newest facility will dramatically reduce both development and production lead times for customers accustomed to older technologies,” said Dr. Chon.
Discera builds micro-electrical mechanical systems (MEMS) that use standard silicon processes to provide the heartbeat necessary for nearly all electronics devices. The company’s technology delivers a smaller, more reliable, and lower power alternative to traditional quartz technology.
Chinese companies work with these technologies under both the Discera name and under license to some of the world’s largest component manufacturers and ODM’s which offer the technology as standalone components, integrated chipsets, and specialty modules. The new China Applications Center serves Direct, Distribution, ODM, and OEM customers as well as local universities, joint venture, and other business partners. Discera has received Global ISO 9001 and Green Partner certification.
