STMicroelectronics to create 90 jobs after VideoLogic deal
Richard Wilson STMicroelectronics (ST) is expanding its Bristol-based digital video IC design centre by recruiting 90 engineers over the next two years. The company’s recently announced design agreement with VideoLogic is the reason behind the recruitment programme, which will expand the size of the semiconductor R&D site at Aztec West near Bristol by 45 per cent. “The main intention is to increase the team’s skills in graphics design,” said Phil Morris, head of human resources at ST’s Aztec West site. “We are looking for engineers at all levels of experience through the entire product flow for 3D graphics accelerators.” Aztec West, which is becoming ST’s largest VLSI semiconductor R&D site, is looking for 30 designers this year to take on system-on-a-chip design for digital video as well as 3D graphics products. Next year a further 50 or 60 engineers will be added to the Bristol design group. This will take headcount past 300. The growth of the site is also a reflection of ST’s recent acquisition of camera-on-a-chip firm Vision. “Through the acquisition of Vision Group and partnerships with other companies such as Hitachi and VideoLogic, ST covers all areas of the digital consumer market,” said Phil Morris, head of human resources at the Aztec West site.
