TAIPEI, Taiwan--()--Conexant Systems, Inc., an audio and imaging innovation leader, has expanded its Asia Pacific AudioSmartTM business by moving into a new facility located in Neihu Technology Park – considered the core of Taipei's Technology Corridor. With this new location, Conexant will provide greater localized support and cutting-edge facilities to serve customers in Taiwan. The Taipei facility joins Conexant offices in China, Korea, Japan, and Singapore.

In addition to accommodating a larger staff, the new 1,500 square meter (approximately 16,000 square feet) facility includes anechoic and EMI acoustic tuning chambers, an ETSI test room and state-of-the-art head acoustic equipment. This allows Conexant to provide the same advanced acoustic design, tuning and verification services for Taiwanese customers as is offered from the company’s headquarters in California – without requiring systems to be physically shipped around the globe or having to navigate time differences between regions. The new Taipei office also includes the ability to perform the iterative testing necessary for Microsoft Skype for Business, Cortana and Intel Automated Speech Recognition certifications. Finally, a new demo room enables Conexant to showcase its full line of AudioSmart products to customers and partners in the region.

Saleel Awsare, Conexant vice president and general manager, attributes the new office location in Taipei to the company’s continued growth in the region. He states, “There is a large demand for our AudioSmart solutions in Taiwan and throughout Asia Pacific, so we have expanded our presence to better serve those markets. By opening a regional location that offers full tuning and testing capabilities, we can respond to our customers’ needs that much quicker and provide them with the solutions they need to create a rich audio experience for their end products.”

To commemorate the opening of the new Taipei office, Conexant will host a grand opening celebration on Friday, July 24 from 3-5 p.m. local time. The celebration will include live bands, food and drink and special giveaways.
