New Office in Seoul, Korea

Tensilica hired Myeong-heum Yeon as managing and sales director of our Korean office. Mr. Yeon has a strong background at major companies including Texas Instruments, Samsung and LG Electronics. Tensilica has major customers in Korea, including LG Electronics, which has designed Tensilica’s Xtensa processor into the LG-LT1000 and LG-KT1000 DMB phones.

“Primarily due to the design flexibility, performance and low power that Tensilica technology offers, Korean consumer and communications manufacturers have been very receptive to our Xtensa configurable processor family,” stated Antonio J. Viana, Tensilica’s senior vice president of sales. “Now that Myeong-heum has joined our company, we have set up a formal Korean presence to further support this important region. Myeong-heum will soon be adding further staff.”
