US firm to create 30 jobs in Cork
US semiconductor firm Hittite Microwave Corporation is to create 30 jobs in Cork as it establishes an international operations centre there and invests €4 million in research and development.
The company designs and manufactures high-frequency, analogue and mixed signal electronics components.
Eleven people will be employed at the new operations centre, which will manage the company’s non-US business.
A global supply chain and finance team will also be located in Cork. A further 19 jobs will be created as a result of RD activities, and it is expected the Cork facility will design components for use in telecommunications and sensor systems.
