Power Integrations Inc. (San Jose, CA), a leader in energy-saving semiconductors used in power conversion, announced the official opening of its new Southern European office and design lab in Bresso, Italy. The new office will be staffed by Power Integrations' sales and engineering employees.
"Power Integrations differentiates itself through leading-edge process and product technology aimed at energy conservation and the ability to fully support customers' switching power supply designs," said Ben Sutherland, managing director of Power Integrations Europe. "The business growth in recent years in Southern Europe necessitated an additional sales and engineering facility. By introducing our EcoSmart solutions to a broader base of customers, we expect to accelerate the conversion of energy-wasting, linear, 50Hz transformers and discrete component-based power supplies to our more energy-efficient, integrated solutions."
