Nasdaq-listed silicon to software provider Synopsys has strengthened its Southeast Asian presence with the opening of new offices in Penang, Malaysia, and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
Synopsys Singapore managing director Geok-Cheng Tan said the two new offices will also help meet the needs of the company's customers with design centres in the region.
"As our customers continue to expand their operations in Southeast Asia, it became increasingly important that we have a local presence so we can collaborate more closely and help them deliver smart, secure products from silicon to software," said Tan.
She said, "We're committed to helping our customers solve their complex design and verification challenges, and reduce risk and speed time to market with our high-quality, silicon-proven IP. Now they can also maximise risk-visibility across the cyber supply chain with our software quality and security solutions."
"Silterra is pleased that Synopsys has decided to invest in setting up a site in Penang," said Arjun Kumar Kanthimahanti, vice president of technology development at semiconductor company Silterra in Malaysia. "This will definitely increase the quality of support here in Malaysia and help us build a closer customer relationship."
"eSilicon maintains a significant design operation at our Vietnam facilities in Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang. Synopsys software is an important part of our design flow," said Hao Nham, vice president of worldwide engineering at eSilicon.
"The IP and ASICs we are building in Vietnam are demanding and employ cutting-edge technology. I am delighted that Synopsys is investing in a facility in Ho Chi Minh City. A strong local support team enhances our ability to deliver on time and on spec," said Nham.
Synopsys' Penang office is located at Suntech @ Penang Cybercity. Synopsys' Ho Chi Minh City office is located at Me Linh Point Tower.
