Posted: 13 Mar 2006 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share


Freescale Semiconductor is expanding its India operations with the acquisition of a 300,000-square-foot campus in Noida. The company plans to expand its presence to 1,500 engineers in India over the next four years to support Freescale's global research and development efforts.

According to the press release, Freescale's India Design Center focuses on intellectual property development and SoC design. It is one of two centers of excellence in the Asia-Pacific region and will be the largest design center outside of the United States once the expansion is complete. The center will also be one of the only non-U.S. design centers to develop and deliver R&D products to all three of Freescale's business groups serving the transportation, networking, consumer and wireless markets.

"Freescale is committed to investing in talent across our global design operations and India represents a particularly attractive opportunity," said Sumit Sadana, Freescale's senior vice president, strategy and business development. "We've had operations in India for almost two decades and want to leverage the highly-educated Indian workforce and growing Indian market."

"Our India design teams work on some of the most advanced 90nm and 65nm designs for applications such as wireless basebands, applications processing and communications processors," said Ganesh Guruswamy, country manager and director, Freescale Semiconductor India Pvt. Ltd. "We get excellent results out of our existing India operations and this campus gives us room to triple our presence in India by 2010."
