Plessey Semiconductors announced the opening of their new office in the city centre of Shenzhen, China. Located in Futian, the heart of the Shenzhen Central Business District, the new office is the first milestone in an aggressive expansion plan for the company. The latest innovation in Plessey Semiconductors’ portfolio is the Electric Potential Integrated Circuit (EPIC) sensor technology, which won a Gold Award at the recent “Best of Sensors Expo” ceremony held at Sensors Expo 2011. Plessey’s new offices open with a full time staff of two — Eden Ho, Plessey Semiconductors’ Regional Sales Manager for China, and Mark Chen, Technical Sales & Applications Manager, and the company plans to increase the headcount rapidly. Plessey’s operations are also supported by two Chinese distributors – Chieftech and AMOD.
The EPIC sensor is a completely new area of sensor technology that measures changes in an electric field in a similar way to a magnetometer detecting changes in a magnetic field.
