5G design site opened in Austin, Texas, by Ericsson

By

People want to keep Austin "weird," but Ericsson will keep Austin unwired with its 5G design site opened there, with 80 designers to be employed by mid-2018.

With engineers at the "Ericsson Austin ASIC Design Centre" to work with core microelectronics of 5G radio base stations, and the site to be "close to the major Silicon-fab houses to foster industry collaboration and sharing expertise," weird and wired Austin is going to go ever more wireless. 

The new design centre will "focus on microelectronics and accelerating the path to 5G commercialisation", with the centre open with ongoing recruitments, with 80 planned to be hired by mid-2018.

"ASIC" stands for "Application Specific Integrated Circuit."

We're told that "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".

Sinisa Krajnovic, head of Development Unit Networks, Ericsson, and pictured below, said: “We are strengthening our radio design capability in one of the world’s 5G pioneer markets. 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 centre is being centrally located in Austin’s tech neighbourhood, near other processor manufacturers.

Working close to the major silicon-fab houses, Ericsson says its centre will "foster collaborations" which will "contribute to Ericsson bringing core silicon technology to develop its unique and dedicated ASICs".

Niklas Heuveldop, head of Ericsson North America, said: “Austin is one of the fastest-growing cities in the US with a bustling tech and start up scene. 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.”
