ON Semiconductor has added an automotive SEC in China to its worldwide network of Solutions Engineering Centres (SEC). The new SEC located in the company's existing campus will focus on the development of advanced energy efficient solutions for a variety of automotive applications including body, HVAC, powertrain, safety, infotainment and LED lighting

The China SEC will provide development platforms and local product support to better service customers who design and manufacture electronic automotive sub-systems in the Asia-Pacific region. The facility will be staffed and equipped with all of the resources necessary for regional automotive electronics manufacturers to tap into the vast power management experience ON Semiconductor has available.

"We expect automotive electronics industry growth in China to easily exceed 20 per cent annually for the next five years," said Andy Williams, ON Semiconductor senior VP and general manager of the On Semi worldwide automotive and power group. "Establishing an automotive-focused SEC in Shanghai further demonstrates ON Semiconductor's commitment to business in China and to strengthening relationships with key automotive customers throughout Asia Pacific."

The automotive SEC in Shanghai will look for opportunities to source additional ON Semiconductor components in modules where it already supplies core components. During the next 12 to 18 months, the company plans to rapidly expand the technical engineering staff at its Shanghai SEC.

According to David Chow, ON Semiconductor VP of sales for Asia Pacific, "China is the world's largest car market, which has stimulated rapid development of its automotive electronics industry. As indigenous manufacturers have a strong demand for world-leading expertise and localised products and service, our SEC in China is well positioned to ride on this wave to expand our automotive solutions coverage in Asia Pacific. The Shanghai-based SEC will work with our regional and global automotive application and system experts to offer our automotive customers in Asia Pacific efficient power solutions that drive new products and revenues."
