PSemi Expands APAC Footprint via New Taiwan Branch Office

The Taipei office expands manufacturing and strengthens global customer support.

FREMONT, CA: The United States' share of global semiconductor production capacity decreased from 37percent in 1990 to 12percent last year, while Europe witnessed a 35percentage drop to 9percent during the same period. According to experts, China's mainland increased its contribution from virtually nothing to 15 percent, and a figure anticipated climbing to 24percent in the next decade.

The inauguration of a branch office in Taipei City, Taiwan, by pSemi® Corporation, a Murata business specialized in semiconductor integration. The Taiwan office joins other pSemi APAC operations in India, Korea, China, and Japan, building on the strength of our existing global supply chain connections.

"pSemi's RF business has grown tremendously driven by the rapid adoption of 5G and our ability to connect the dots between circuit, system and device," says Sumit Tomar, CEO at pSemi. "Our new Taipei branch office scales up our manufacturing footprint, expands support for our strategic APAC customers and business partners, and furthers collaboration with our parent company, Murata." 

Murata established a foothold in Taiwan over 40 years ago, taking into account the country's semiconductor manufacturing environment, geographic closeness to other Asian nations, and talent pool. pSemi's Taiwan office, which shares space with Murata, is situated at Zhongxiao E. Road, Taipei, 10050. It is close to Murata Electronics' Taichung facility, allowing pSemi to utilize Murata's manufacturing footprint and ease collaborative IC and module development.
