Occupying 24,000 square feet in The Dillon, ADI’s new office is significantly larger than its previous location and is  located near major highways, Union Station, downtown Raleigh, and the numerous amenities of the Warehouse District.

Last summer, people around the world watched as rescuers worked feverishly to save the young boys of a soccer team and their coach trapped in a flooded Thailand cave. They all eventually made it out safely, supported by an ADI team based in Raleigh that developed the software-defined-radio technology rescuers used to communicate in the cave.

The Raleigh office, which has doubled in size over the last five years, is an ADI Center of Excellence focused on researching and developing the software-defined radio (SDR) systems that underpin modern wireless communication systems and infrastructures, including 5G networks. The new facility will accommodate up to 120 employees.

Vincent Roche, Analog Devices CEO said in a statement: ““Analog Devices has not wavered in its pursuit of cutting-edge innovation as the path to sustainable growth since its founding, The work we are doing in Raleigh to enable the next generations of communication infrastructure, and this new investment in the city, is a reflection of that.  We value the Triangle’s incredible talent and innovation ecosystem and are delighted to participate in and contribute to the city and area growth.”

The SDR Group housed in Raleigh focuses on the embedded hardware, software, and related technologies found in current and next-gen wireless systems and networks.  Analog Devices’ other North Carolina offices are in Greensboro and Cary, where the company conducts R&D on communications transceiver and power hardware, software, and applications.

The company currently has nearly 400 employees in the state.
