Founded in 2003, Open-Silicon, Inc. transforms ideas into system-optimized ASIC solutions with flexible engagement models within right time-to-market parameters. Right from its inception, Open-Silicon has grown in India-based sites with a majority of its engineering teams in India. India's engineering culture is ingrained in Open-Silicon's genes and Indian design centers form the company's beating heart.

The company empowers its employees to learn and enhance their competencies in all aspects of engineering including architecture, design, implementation, R&D, systems, hardware, software, IP design,and associated management. This is because the company's Indian design centers own design and implementation aspects of its ASIC/SOCs in addition to the R&D facets dedicated to innovations towards achieving lower power, higher performance, lower cost, and faster time-to-market.

Excellent Benefits Ensuring Utmost Satisfaction & Motivation

Being a mid-sized company with close to 300 employees, Open-Silicon's engineers relish the fact that their 'scope-of-influence' reaches beyond that of larger corporations. It's extremely rewarding for them to directly observe how their actions benefit customers and the company's business successes. The global company has a world-wide presence with offices in the U.S., India, Taiwan, Japan, and Israel; Open-Silicon considers India as a pivotal hub supporting customers in APAC and EMEA markets.

"Our excellent benefit and retention programs are often reviewed and rectified. During appraisal cycles, managers identify each employee's training needs and meticulously discuss his/her career development opportunities," states Sanjini Menon, HR Head, Open-silicon.
