The choice of Cork as the location for R&D activities is due to a combination of the availability of world-class engineers to contribute to the execution of the company's global R&D strategy and the proximity to the semiconductor and integrated circuit design capabilities in Tyndall Institute, University College Cork and Cork Institute of Technology.
