Winchester, UK - Power management IC start-up, CamSemi has opened a dedicated business development and application design centre in the Bundang-GU district of Gyungg-Do, Seoul in South Korea.
The new office will be instrumental in growing the company's customer base and sales in Korea and houses meeting rooms and a development laboratory, as well as CamSemi's recently established local team of application engineers. The office is close to many major CamSemi customers and is being run by Seungjib Hong, who joins as Korea country manager.
