Dolphin Design, a leader in Edge Computing and AI platforms for Internet of things (IoT)is developing in Asia and open a processing center in Singapore
Singapore, JanFebruary 5e2022 – Dolphin Design, a company specializing in advanced chip design, will open its new branch dedicated to edge computing and AI in Singapore in Pasir Ris, where French semiconductor company Soitec operates a factory. Dolphin Design’s vision is to enable the largest possible AIoT / EDGE IoT semiconductor community to deliver products with ultimate energy efficiency and performance given its mantra “Consume less energy while increasing performance“. Soitec owns 80% of the capital of Dolphin Design.
While the hub for power and audio management activities will remain in France, Dolphin Design is keen to move part of its processing activities to Singapore. The branch will become a center of excellence in R&D and industrialization for its processing activity and a key pillar of its commercial development in Asia and around the world. It will also become a regional application lab and customer support center for its portfolio of IP processing platforms. Dolphin Design also plans to build demo boards and software in Singapore, especially for its growth in AI algorithms, leveraging its strong platform for entrepreneurial and industrial developments in the semiconductor industry. .
The development plan of Dolphin Design in Singapore foresees the recruitment of 10 local talents in the coming months and up to 50 in total by 2023. Highly qualified engineers with training in AI or Edge Computing, from recent graduates to those who have more than 15 years of experience in this field will be sought. Qualified staff will have the opportunity to perfect their expertise with training courses at the head office of Dolphin Design in France. In addition, staff would also benefit from being co-located with Soitec, as it would allow them to gain exposure and cross-learning capabilities in the fabrication of technical substrates.
Chang Chin Nam, Senior Vice President and Head of Semiconductors from singapore Eeconomic Ddevelopment Bboard (EDB)noted, “We appreciate partnerships with semiconductor companies such as Dolphin Design to meet global demand for semiconductor solutions, in growth areas such as Edge Computing and AI. the sthe semiconductor industry is a key pillar of Singapore’s economy, and Dolphin DesignThe decision to locate its new Edge Computing and AI branch in Singapore demonstrates our attractiveness as a global hub for chip design. EDB is delighted to support Dolphin Design‘s establishment in SingaporewhatI’m going to createe Well job Opportunities for Singaporeans.”
