SANTA CLARA, Calif. and SEOUL, Korea - Aug. 21, 2019 − Efinix®, an innovator in programmable product platforms and technologies, and Centron Technology, a design consulting and manufacturer of Electronics Engineering Systems, today announced a partnership to distribute Efinix's Trion® FPGA silicon platform in Korea.
"Demand for Trion FPGAs is rapidly growing, especially in Asia," said Itsu Wang, Efinix's VP of sales and business development responsible for Asia outside of China. "Korea and its innovation represent a significant opportunity and Centron Technology's market presence and experience will play a pivotal role in delivering our Trion FPGA silicon platform to customers driving the future of edge AI computing."
"The response and adoption to Efinix's FPGA technology is powerful and impressive," said Ken.D.Lee, CEO and general manager of Centron Technology. "We are already experiencing momentum in design, both engagements and customer wins. Couple that with our lengthy track record and expertise in Korea, we believe this partnership is a winning combination."
One of those wins is Gilgaon, a design service house based in Korea focused on FPGA design, PCB design, firmware and applications. Gilgaon is using Trion FPGAs to develop a display interface conversion with built-in Timing Controller which will be used in a luxury sedan developed by an European automaker.
"The performance of Trion FPGAs is tremendous," said Jungho Cha, CTO of Gilgaon. "Efinix's technology is not only a major breakthrough for the next wave of innovation, but the ease-of-use and robust capabilities made its adoption smooth and effortless."
In addition to FPGA distribution experience, Centron Technology's design consulting and manufacturing services are taking advantage of Trion FPGAs' low power, small form factor, and the Efinity® Integrated Development Environment to engage with customers across Korea.
