Nvidia Corp. is joining the rush by US and European companies to establish research and design operations in India. The company is setting up a team that will focus on its nForce wireless media and communications processors at a facility in Bangalore that will initially employ 35 engineers, rising to over 80 as quickly as possible.

"So far almost all our R&D has been carried out in the US. Now we are looking at setting up in other areas, and the Bangalore facility, the first, will become a major centre for developing parts for wireless media processors for applications such as mobile phones", a spokesman at Nvidia told EE Times.

The facility will also include a sales and marketing team, "since India is a region primed for enormous growth."

Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO, Nvidia Corp., commented: "We know from experience that India is home to some of the world's brightest engineers, as many of our top employees today are originally from there. India is strategic to Nvidia and we are delighted to become a member of the Bangalore community." The Bangalore design centre will be modeled on the company's existing facilities, with a data centre allowing top-to-bottom design of advanced graphics and media processors for a wide range of platforms.
