Power Integrations, the leader in high-voltage integrated circuits for energy-efficient power conversion, announced the opening of a new location in Penang, Malaysia. The facility will serve as a production-support and R&D center as well as an operations hub from which the company will manage its Asian supply chain. The Penang office further expands Power Integrations’ global footprint, which includes R&D centers in Silicon Valley (where it is also headquartered), Canada, Switzerland, and the UK, as well as design-support centers in the Philippines and Germany, and 19 field labs worldwide. The company officially opened the facility earlier this month with a ceremony officiated by the Rt. Hon. Mr. Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang.
