ClariPhy Opens Design Center in Argentina

Irvine-based ClariPhy Communications, a startup developing high speed communications ICs, announced today that it has opened an overseas design center in Argentina. The company said that it has opened a development center near the National University of Cordoba, to help it design and accelerate development of its 10Gbit/s mixed signal ICs. ClariPhy cited the country's relatively untapped pool of engineering talent at the National University, proximity in terms of time zone to Pacific Daylight Time, and other design centers in the area. The move is somewhat unusual for a technology company, for an industry that has been relying on outsourcing and establishing additional development centers in such areas as India, China, and Taiwan.
