Motorola pops Cork for Irish design jobs
Richard Wilson Motorola is creating 120 chip design engineering jobs in Ireland over the next three years with the setting up of a semiconductor design centre at Mahon, Cork. Recruiting of designers starts this month for the centre which will open in the summer. Representing an investment of IR?5.3m by the US chip firm, the centre will be based at Motorola’s existing software development centre and will develop IC products for wireless communications applications. The company said it will be looking for designers with RF, mixed-signal and precision analogue circuit design experience. “Ireland, with its rich talent pool, strong university base and attractive living conditions make it an ideal match for Motorola,” said Ralph Quinsey, general manager in the firm’s wireless subscriber systems group. Motorola’s semiconductor products business already has design centres in the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Israel. The Cork design centre mirrors similar investments in the UK in recent months from US chip design firms such as Cadence Design Systems, Altera and Cypress Semiconductor.
