Barco Silex Opens Design Center in Ghent

Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium -- 17 September 2012 -- Barco Silex, Barco's center of competence for FPGA, ASIC and IP design services, announces the opening of a design office in Ghent.

"We are very pleased to announce the opening of this design center in the North region of Belgium" said Geert Decorte, Director of Sales and Marketing of Barco Silex. "Our high level of ASIC and FPGA design services together with the extensive IP development services have required this office to better serve the local Flemish and Holland market."

"Close communication with the market and the users is extremely important for the technology and the services that we provide" said Thierry Watteyne, CEO of Barco Silex. "A closer geographical presence is greatly contributing to that goal".

As cost efficiency is of huge importance for as well our clients as for the engineering people, Barco Silex decided to open a design office in Ghent located in the Flemish part of Belgium. This is closing the gap to our target markets. Ghent is very well centralized for the Flemish region and more easily reachable for our clients in the Netherlands.

The starting engineering team has many years of experience in the graphical printing segment and has extended competences in the fields of image processing, electronic boards, FPGA and embedded software development.

The team will further develop our embedded systems design strategy and deploy competences required by the market and our customers. Additional engineering people will be hired to better support the engineering resource of our customers.
