Tartan tech as Agile Analog expands into Scotland
Cambridge analog IP specialist Agile Analog is establishing an engineering team in Edinburgh to advance its design capabilities and help reach more customers.
Agile Analog’s technologies enable the rapid generation of high-quality analog IP. The company supplies highly configurable process node-agnostic analog IP building blocks for multiple semiconductor foundries and process nodes.
Executive chairman, Pete Hutton, said Edinburgh boasted excellent engineering credentials in the field and provided a natural extension to its capabilities in the other tech hotspots of Cambridge and Taiwan.
He said: “Agile Analog is changing the status quo by addressing the long-standing inefficiencies in creating and delivering analog circuits across process technologies. Our Edinburgh office will increase capabilities in analog design, digital design, software and hardware to support increased customer activities and company growth.
“Scotland is a worldwide centre of excellence in semiconductor engineering and DeepTech developments. Our office will contribute to the growth of a highly skilled, productive, and committed engineering community in Edinburgh.”
Agile Analog has started to announce key senior managements hires for its Scotland operation, including Barry Paterson who will be the company’s new VP of Product Marketing.
Its presence in Scotland will enable Agile Analog to provide a state-of-the-art product to the market and a more immediate response to requests due to rapid growth in demand for its analog building-block IP.
