Synplicity Inc.s five-year old development center here has moved from being an extension of R&D teams in the U.S. to take on autonomous development projects, some of which are already in progress.

These projects include entire development programs with the companys structured ASIC partners, and more projects to be done out of Bangalore are being identified, said Gary Meyers, Synplicity president and CEO. "Projects planned here include those in our prototyping, FPGA and ASICs product lines. You dont get to see a lot of this happening in electronic design in India."

The Indian market is the fastest-growing market globally for Synplicity (Sunnyvale, Calif.), and this growth will only accelerate with both multinational and Indian companies expected to vastly expand their FPGA and structured ASIC efforts, Meyers said.

Synplicity is working with some Indian services firms and talking to others for partnerships on the structured ASIC platform.

"We facilitate some of them in talking to structured ASIC vendors," said H.V. Ananda, managing director of Synplicity's Indian subsidiary, Synplicity Software India Pvt. Ltd. "Some Indian firms are also interested in putting their intellectual property in the structured ASICs. The ecosystem around structured ASICs is growing rapidly and India figures very much in this growth."

Staff strength here has recently doubled to 40. Continued hiring is expected, with the company paying "premium" salaries to its staff. As long as Synplicity finds the talent it needs in Bangalore, it does not see a need to open another center elsewhere in the country, unlike some other EDA vendors with multiple locations in India.
