Ericsson Unveils 5G Design Center in Austin, Texas PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 11 October 2017 12:15


Ericsson is opening a design center in Austin, Texas, to focus on microelectronics and accelerating the path to 5G commercialization. The Austin ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) Design Center is open now and recruitments are ongoing.

Such microelectronics are at the core of all Ericsson Radio Systems and can be seen as processors that are specially made for the computation needs of mobile infrastructure. They are 100x faster, more cost-efficient, and less power hungry than a general processor in a personal computer.

“We are strengthening our radio design capability in one of the world’s 5G pioneer markets,” said Sinisa Krajnovic, Head of Development Unit Networks, Ericsson. “We’ll be up and running with our first group of designers in Austin by the end of 2017. Along with our ASIC design teams in Sweden and China, we’ll be making faster, better and greener 5G products to bring into the Ericsson portfolio by 2019.”

The Design center will be centrally located in Austin’s tech neighborhood, near other processor manufacturers. Working close to the major Silicon-fab houses and fostering collaborations will contribute to Ericsson bringing core silicon technology to develop its unique and dedicated ASICs.

“Austin is one of the fastest-growing cities in the US with a bustling tech and start up scene,” said Niklas Heuveldop, Head of Ericsson North America. “We want to capture the great talent on-hand there, enabling us to increase digital ASIC capabilities even further and be close to some of our key global customers.”
