ON Semiconductor expands R&D operations with design centre in Roznov
The centre, located on the company's Roznov campus, is focused on the development of energy efficient power solutions for use in televisions, notebook computers, battery chargers, white goods, and LED lighting and wireless applications.
Minimizing the impact on the environment was an important consideration during the design and construction of the new Roznov design centre building, which houses 1,000 square meters of high tech laboratories. The building was constructed with power efficient heating and cooling systems. Several innovative energy recuperation systems have also been incorporated, including the transfer of wasted heat for hot water preparation and to warm general office space with the building. High efficiency windows and effective internal insulation have also been installed to further decrease the building’s carbon footprint.
“ON Semiconductor’s new Roznov Design center and all our talented teams in Roznov and Brno play a key role within the company’s global network,” said Keith Jackson, president and CEO of ON Semiconductor. “The Roznov design team is charged with developing innovative technologies and products to improve energy usage within the myriad of electronics manufactured by our global customers. As such, the products being designed in the Czech Republic are helping to reduce energy consumption and improve overall CO2 emissions.”
ON Semiconductor’s operations in the Czech Republic date back to 1999 when the company spun off from Motorola and took on the facilities and employees in Roznov. In the years since then, the number of Roznov design center employees has expanded from 12 to more than 100 design engineers. The entire Roznov campus, which includes the design centre, a 6-inch wafer manufacturing fab, a silicon wafer production facility and business operations support teams now employs a total of approximately 1,300 people.
