austriamicrosystems AG has set up a development center at Hyderabad in southern India and plans to invest between $40 million and $50 million into this effort.

According to a report in The Economic Times from Hyderabad last week, the company has taken up residence in a 6,000-ft2 facility, which is already operational. Quoting a government official, the report said the company has hired 10 engineers.

austriamicrosystems plans to use the center for developing and producing customized and standard analog semiconductors. The staff is now undergoing training overseas and will soon set up shop in the Hyderabad facility.

Hyderabad's emergence as the chosen destination for the two upcoming large fab projects in India has given the region a leg up on Bangalore as a destination for design centers. Hyderabad houses 30 percent of the companies in the VLSI design segment.

"With the new fabs coming up, we are expecting more such companies to follow," the report quoted C.S. Rao, information technology advisor to the Andhra Pradesh government, as saying.
