ON Semiconductor has commenced operations at its solutions engineering center (SEC) in Seoul, South Korea. Established to further support key local strategies, the SEC is housed within the company's new downtown offices.

The expanded facility is expected to offer advanced power management solutions for the cellphone, portable devices, computer, power supply and automotive market. The SEC will focus on providing in-depth development platforms and local product support to better serve those customers who design and manufacture cellular handsets and handheld electronic devices throughout South Korea.

"We see major opportunities in South Korea, especially in the portable/wireless space, "said Bill Bradford, ON Semiconductor SVP of sales, marketing. "Handset production in South Korea is estimated to be about 30 percent of the global production in 2005, with a compound annual growth rate of 46 percent anticipated. Most of this growth is to be contributed by our key customers who are market makers that drive the portable market segment."

"We regard the SEC as a direct investment in both our customers' and our own success," said Peter Green, ON Semiconductor SVP and general manager of Integrated Power Group. "The SEC's application engineers and system experts will work closely with our customers to jointly develop cost-effective and space-saving portable power solutions that drive new products and revenues for our mutual advantage."
