Laguna Beach-based Sentinel IC Technologies launched its first expansion outside the U.S. with the opening of a European Technology Center in Delemont, Switzerland, just outside of Basel.

The leading provider of the power semiconductor design process will keep its Orange County headquarters. For Sentinel, the new location will better serve the European customer base while taking advantage of international business opportunities.

The European Semiconductor Industry Association reported that semiconductor sales were up 34 percent in July compared to the same month last year. It’s the highest level since 2007. And sales have increased on a three-month rolling average.

"We've successfully established a strong portfolio of innovative design solutions and tools and look forward to extending the deployment to the European foundry, integrated device manufacturer and fabless semiconductor market,” said James Victory, Sentinel’s president and CEO. “Our advanced analog design enablement technology portfolio aligns closely with Europe’s analog-centric core technology solutions."
