Gallium Semi opens European GaN R&D centre
Gallium Semiconductor has opened its European R&D centre at Kerkenbos 1224 in Nijmegen.
The ceremony was hosted by Kin Tan, CEO of Gallium Semi, based in Singapore, and Vice President of Operations Henk Thoonen. Thoonen also serves as the Nijmegen site director.
The Nijmegen office is home to Gallium Semi’s European engineers designing and developing RF semiconductor solutions to support 5G and beyond networks. Nijmegen is at the heart of Europe’s RF power technology and Gallium Semi plans to expand its team with world class talent from the area. The company develops gallium nitride (GaN) on silicon RF devices for 5G mobile communications, aerospace and defence and industrial, scientific and medical applications.
“Nijmegen was an obvious choice for Gallium Semi’s new European R&D centre,” said Tan. “The city of Nijmegen continues to invest in the knowledge economy and is an attractive location for high tech companies and its employees.”
“We are very proud of our new activities here,” said Henk Thoonen, Gallium Semi’s VP of Operations. “The centre is designed to support the growth of our R&D team who will focus on the development of innovative products and technologies to power next generation mobile communications.”
