New headquarters for Silicon Austria Labs

The top Austrian re­search centre Silicon Austria Labs (SAL) opened its new head­quar­ters in Graz. SAL also lures numerous international researchers to Austria, such as Bruno Clerckx. The Belgian national is a specialist for wireless communication and signal processing and works as a Professor for Electrical Engineering and Electronics at Imperial College London. In the course of his career, he served at universities in South Korea, USA, France and Great Britain. From 2006 to 2011, Clerckx held various research positions at the South Korean electronics multinational Samsung and has more than 70 patents.

250 people are to be employed at the facility by the year 2030. Silicon Austria Labs have three facilities in Austria, namely in Linz, Villach and its main premises in Graz. More than 600 people are employed at the Center for Microelectronics in Austria. The new building will include laboratories for power electronics and trustworthy, electronic-based systems (dependable EBS). The newly created validation lab has sensors to measures environmental influences such as temperature, mechanical shaking and humidity. In addition to its proprietary research, SAL will also offer industrial partners the opportunity to conduct their tests on electronic components there.
