Gallium Semiconductor opens Nijmegen R&D Center
Singapore-based Gallium Semiconductor has opened its European R&D center in a ceremony at Kerkenbos 1224 in Nijmegen, Netherlands. The ceremony was hosted by CEO Kin Tan and VP of operations Henk Thoonen, who also serves as the Nijmegen site director. Many of Gallium Semi’s customers, partners and vendors from the Europe region were in attendance to dedicate the R&D center.
“The center is designed to support the growth of our R&D team, which will focus on the development of innovative products and technologies to power next-generation mobile communications,” says Thoonen.
“The city of Nijmegen continues to invest in the knowledge economy and is an attractive location for high-tech companies and its employees,” comments Kin Tan.
Gallium Semi’s European engineers design and develop RF semiconductor solutions to support 5G-and-beyond networks. Nijmegen is at the heart of Europe’s RF power technology and enables Gallium Semi to expand its team with world-class talent, the firm reckons.
“Gallium Semi is a great addition to the vibrant semiconductor industry in the Netherlands,” commented Ben van den Broek, project manager international for the East Netherlands Development Agency, at the grand opening. “Their choice of Nijmegen as its European R&D center further elevates our region’s global attractiveness for its talented pool of professionals and proximity to customers,” he added.
