17 jobs go as tech firm Entropic shuts office

A US technology company is set to close its Belfast office with the loss of 17 jobs.

Entropic produces chips for set-top boxes for cable and satellite TV providers.

The company is undertaking a restructuring that will see 40% of its global workforce lose their jobs.

The Belfast operation, which has its offices on Malone Road, acts as its European design and sales centre.

The company has been in the city since 2012 when it acquired the Belfast operation as part of a takeover of Trident Microsystems.
