Akros Silicon Announces New Shanghai Office

Second office in China supports rapid sales growth in the region

San Jose, California - May 5, 2015 - Akros Silicon Inc., a premier supplier of leading-edge intelligent energy management ICs, announces the opening of a new office in Shanghai, China, to meet increasing product deman. The office is located at Building #2, BaiCun Park, Wang Yuan Road, FengXian District, Shanghai, and is Akros’ second office in China, the first being in Shenzhen.

Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology is experiencing a renaissance with power level capability increasing beyond 30 watts to upwards of 90 watts. This increase is essential for meeting the power requirements of outdoor, pan-tilt-zoom IP cameras and opens opportunities for PoE-based smart lighting for office and commercial environments.

“Akros Silicon has seen tremendous growth in sales in China with our PoE and integrated digital isolator products,” said Elie Antoun, President & CEO of Akros Silicon. “The establishment of a new office Shanghai will allow us to provide local technical and logistical support to our growing customer base in Central and Northern China.”
