eSilicon Adds China Region to Its TSMC VCA Partnership

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 30, 2011 -- eSilicon Corporation, the largest independent semiconductor value chain producer (VCP), today announced that it has expanded its TSMC Value Chain Aggregator (VCA) partnership program membership to include China. eSilicon is already a VCA member of TSMC's North American, European and Israel customer regions.

eSIlicon's track record of delivering high-performance, high-complexity, first-time-right ASICs has made it a trusted supplier to both system OEMs and fabless semiconductor companies around the world. eSilicon's approach to customer service is to develop high-quality regional engineering and operations centers close to each customer base. To grow its customer base in Asia, eSilicon began investing there in 2008 with the establishment of its Shanghai operations. In 2010, eSilicon opened two engineering centers of excellence in Vietnam.

With a 200-person strong Asia-based engineering and operations team, best-in-class design and manufacturing methodology, and license rights to Avago Technologies' high-performance SerDes IP bundle, eSilicon is uniquely qualified to service the semiconductor needs of China-based system OEMs in the networking, telecom and similar markets.

"We are honored to be selected as a TSMC VCA member for the China customer region," said Hugh Durdan, chief operating officer at eSilicon. "This expansion of our VCA partnership enhances our ability to offer TSMC-based solutions to our China-based customers."

"eSilicon has been one of our key VCA members in the North American, European and Israel customer regions," said Percy Chang, deputy director, worldwide sales and marketing, TSMC. "We welcome the opportunity to work with them to expand service and solutions to Chinese customers."

The purpose of the TSMC VCA partnership program is to enable customers to fully benefit from TSMC's technology by leveraging VCA partner expertise to support customers' semiconductor needs. VCA partners are experts in extracting the full capabilities of TSMC's technology and delivering those benefits to customers in the form of finished semiconductor products.
