Sasken Technologies Limited (formerly Sasken Communication Technologies Limited) is a technology and service provider based in Bangalore, India, which provides product engineering and digital transformation services to global customers in industries such as semiconductors, automotive, enterprise grade devices, smart devices and wearables, industrials, satcom, and telecom.

Origin[edit]

Sasken began as the brainchild of Rajiv C Mody, its Chairman, MD & CEO, and three other co-founders: Krishna Jhaveri, Suresh Dholakia, and Badruddin Agarwala. Sasken came into being as Silicon Automation Systems (SAS) in 1989 in a small warehouse in Fremont, California. Later, the company changed its name to Sasken Communication Technologies Limited. The name 'Sasken' is an amalgamation of its original name (SAS) and 'ken', the Scottish word for knowledge. [1]

In February 2017, Sasken announced that it had changed its name to Sasken Technologies Limited to serve customers in businesses ranging from automotive, enterprise grade devices, smart devices and wearables, industrials, and satellite communication. In January 2018, Sasken unveiled a new logo to reflect its 30-year-old heritage.

Sasken employs 2000+ people, operating from development centers in Bengaluru, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad (India), Kaustinen and Tampere (Finland), Detroit (USA), and Beijing and Shanghai (China). Sasken also has a presence across Germany, Japan, UK, and USA.[2]
