The complete design of Intel's newly-launched Xeon 7400 microprocessor took place in India.

Intel's India design team handled all design activities, including front-end design, pre-silicon logic validation and back-end design for the Intel Xeon 7400 series processor aimed at high-end servers and code-named Dunnington.

Along with being Intel India's first complete microprocessor design, Praveen Vishakantaiah, president of Intel Technology India Pvt. Ltd, said the design ramp-up took just six years. "This is also the first complete 45nm design outside the United States," Vishakantaiah added.

Intel's India development center has also contributed to designs for the Napa, Santa Rosa and Montevina mobile platforms, as well as the quad-core Intel Xeon 5300 and design and validation of its Core2 Extreme quad-core processor families.

Intel has been operating in India since 1988, beginning with a sales office. It established a development center in 1998 that now employs about 2,500 engineers. Intel has so far invested about $1.7 billion in its Indian operations.
