EE Times Europe interviewed Frankwell Jyh-Ming Lin, CEO of Andes Technology Corp. (Hsinchu, Taiwan), a licensor of a range of 32bit processor cores as intellectual property (IP), and asked how the company is planning to address the European market.
Founded in 2005 to develop and license its own architecture of low-power processor cores and associated development tools, Andes is still privately held but has received significant minority investment from fabless chip company MediaTek Inc. (Hsinchu,Taiwan). MediaTek is also a licensee.
Although Andes may not be well known in Europe it has achieved design wins in numerous wireless connectivity chips and touchscreen controllers and Andes IP has shipped in more than a billion chips to date. Having started in southeast Asia before ramping commercial activities in the United States, Lin now reckons the suitability of the company's AndeStar architecture for low-power nodes in the Internet of Things (IoT) makes it a good fit for European developers.
