The center houses facilities for the design, development, and testing of analog ICs, as well as development of optical devices.
According to the company, the development center consolidates analog operations currently dispersed throughout its Kitakyushu Operations site, as well as part of analog technology development groups located in its facilities in Yokohama and Kawasaki.
