Energy Micro opens new design center in Poland
July 09, 2012 // Paul Buckley
Energy Micro has opened the company’s new design center in Kraków, Poland. The company's first engineering site outside Norway, the new facility located in Parkowa Kamienica in downtown Kraków, accommodates a group of expert embedded hardware and software engineers.
The center strengthens support for customers using Energy Micro's EFM32 Gecko microcontrollers (MCUs) and future RF-MCUs.
"Coming to Kraków represents a strategic investment in the growth of our global engineering team and in Energy Micro overall," said Øyvind Grotmol, Energy Micro's VP of Simplicity. "Here we can draw on a deep pool of local engineering talent to build a strong team who individually and together will be leaders in their field."
The new design team, which will be headed by Sebastian Zylowski, will focus initially on embedded software development. The group currently numbers six engineers, with expertise in developing driver libraries and radio protocol stacks. Energy Micro plans to increase headcount at a pace of ten engineers per year, and expects to also establish both analog and digital chip design teams. The company will recruit engineers at all levels, including experienced senior engineers and high-quality graduates from local universities.
Sebastian Zylowski joined Energy Micro from Advanced Digital Broadcast, where he led a group of hardware and software engineers, managing product development from conception to industrialization. He has more than 15 years of experience in the electronics industry, most recently specializing in the digital video broadcast (DVB) sector and was responsible for the granting of multiple patents during his time at ADB.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
