The company has been a major supplier to many companies with its proprietary power supply control and protection circuit technologies patented in many fields, including power supply/protection ICs, driver ICs, and wireless charging power supply ICs. It also offers a wide variety of converter ICs that bridge display ports with conventional analog A/V interfaces or digital A/V interfaces such as HDMI, as well as many other products with unique functions and performance that conform to the latest video standards. The establishment of an R&D base in Japan by the company with such advanced technologies will contribute to the sophistication of Japanese semiconductor industry.
At the end of 2019, the company acquired the smart connectivity division of MegaChips Corporation, a Japanese semiconductor manufacturer, and established Kinetic Technologies K.K. in March 2020. In August 2020, it established a Japanese subsidiary office in Chiba Prefecture and began full-scale business operation in Japan.
Upon establishing a Japanese subsidiary, JETRO's Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) provided information on subsidies/incentives and real estate properties, introduced service providers, arranged interviews, and provided consultation (labor) and support in opening bank accounts.
IBSCs are located in Japan's major business hubs and provide one-stop support and service to foreign firms seeking to set up or expand business in Japan. The centers, which provide free temporary office space, consultation with expert advisors and access to a wealth of business information, tailor support according to the specific needs and phase of development of each firm.
