EnVerv, a fabless semiconductor company that develops communications system-on-chip solutions for the smart grid market, has announced the opening of its regional sales and support office in Taipei, Taiwan. According to the company, this office will serve a growing customer base in Taiwan and develop advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems for the domestic smart grid, as well as for the international export markets.

Edwin Chen, vice president and general manager of Asia Pacific at EnVerv, will be heading the new office.

"I am very excited to open a new front in the endeavor to expand our customer base in Taiwan and worldwide by extension," says Chen. "Not only is the domestic smart grid market in Taiwan about to take a giant leap forward, [but] Taiwan being one of the major export hubs in the world will also play a strategic role in providing other markets in the region and beyond with advanced smart grid and AMI systems."
